Welcome to Curl Creek Farm
Breeding high quality registered Nigerian Dwarf Goats for milk and show since 2013
Home of the 2019 CGS West National Grand & Reserve Champion
We are a small hobby farm located in the beautiful North Okanagan in Armstrong BC. In our breeding program, we focus on correct conformation, dairy character and well supported productive mammary systems. We place a strong emphasis on milk production and participate yearly in milk testing as well as classification's through the CGS. We have imported some fantastic bucks from the US, most who are out of dams with finished championships, excellent mammaries and superior milking genetics on both sides of their pedigrees. In 2019 we entered our first ever show at the CGS West Nationals and our girls made us incredibly proud winning both Grand and Reserve Champion. There was a 2 year break from the CGS West National show due to covid but the show resumed in 2022. Unfortunately we were unable to attend however we were thrilled to see a Curl Creek doe once again at the top of the podium. Curl Creek Charisse owned by Diana Owens won Grand Champion at the 2022 CGS West Nationals.
Our whole herd is tested annually for CAE and Johnes since 2015 and we have been negative each time. We have also added CL testing to our annual screening back in 2019. We test all adults over a year old. Herd last tested in Jan 2023 with all negative results for CAE, CL and Johnes. Copy of results posted on our Facebook page and also available upon request.
About the breed
The Nigerian Dwarf goat is a miniature dairy goat of West African origin. Nigerian goats have risen in popularity due to their small size, colorful markings and dairy characteristics. Their small stature means they do not require as much space or feed as their larger dairy goat counterparts and their gentle and friendly personalities make them good companion pets. Even small children are safe around these little goats.
Nigerian goats can breed year around and for the most part, they are a hearty breed, which seldom have kidding problems. They can have several kids at a time, with triplets and quads being common. Nigerians are generally excellent mothers and take great care of their kids should you decide to let mom raise them. A healthy Nigerian doe can produce a surprising amount of sweet milk for her small size, as much as two quarts per day or more.
Goats are herd animals and enjoy the company of other goats. If they do not have one of their own for companionship, they will be a miserable goat and will make you a miserable goat owner. So, if it is your intention to purchase a goat, be prepared to purchase a minimum of two.
Like all other goat breeds, Nigerian goats need basic care to ensure a good, long, productive and healthy life. Whether you have just two pet goats or a large breeding herd, basic good management practices should be part of your goat ownership. If you are new to goats, please let us know and we will be happy to provide you with a care sheet.
Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions or if you are interested in one of our planned breedings.
