Nigoras!

We have been granted an awesome opportunity to try our hand at Nigoras,  Nigerian x Angora crosses.  We went to get an Angora buck for our herd, since Tex passed away almost 2 years ago.  Helen the lady went got the buck from had 3 Nigora doelings,  that she wasn’t able to sell and was just trying to get rid of them, so we took them.

Nigoras are an attempt to get a dual purpose breed,  one that produces fiber and milk.  There fleeces come in 3 categories,  A – which is an Angora type fleece,  C – which is a cashmere like fleece and then B – which has characteristics of both.

We look forward to developing our line of Nigroas.  And welcome them to Hafrskegg’s Hamlet!
