Anglo-Nubian goats (2nd of 3)

Anglo-Nubian goats

Anglo-Nubian goats have curved Roman noses and large pendulous ears. They came to New Zealand from England or via Australia, and are registered pure-bred animals. There are only a few in New Zealand. Nubian goats can be produced from crossing Anglo-Nubians with other breeds. There are more than 3,000 in New Zealand, used mainly for dairying.
