SUPERIOR GENETICS: 2010 is the first year Nigerians have been included in the ADGA Superior Genetics database. Take a look. These are animals that are proving their genetic worth in production (DHI) and structure (Linear Appraisal).
As more and more of our herds participate in DHI production testing and Linear Appraisal, Nigerian Dwarfs are showing up in the ADGA genetics database. In 2010, the first Nigerians have reached the benchmarks for a Superior Genetics designation.
Details of the program can be found on the ADGA Website.
MILK PRODUCTION: ANDDA recognizes the top milk producers in the breed as determined by ADGA and AGS. Our milk production page includes a listing of members who participate in DHI.
Congratulations to our FIRST Nigerian Dwarfs with Superior Genetics Status.
