Welcome to Narrow Gate Nigerian Dwarf



We are located on the plains of North East Colorado and are blessed to raise beautiful, healthy, (ADGA and AGS) registered Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats. Our focus is on quality rather than quantity and that objective directs our breeding and care. We test annually for CAE and are a disease...Scrapie, TB, Johnes, Brucellosis, CL, and CAE...free herd.

Our herdname is registered as NRW GATE (tattoo NRW). We are breeding for show and the >milk stand, and are involved in yearly Linear Appraisals and DHIA Milk Testing. Our focus is on producing goats that represent the ADGA and NDGA Breed Standard. Along with type and size, we are striving for high capacious udders that don't disappoint in the milk pail.

Finally. It's always interesting to hear where a herdname came from, how it was chosen, the meaning behind it. For us it was wanting to combine our lifestyle with our Faith. Gates are common in farming and ranching. On any given day you'll go through quite a few of them, and with each there's etiquitte and courtesies to follow. But this life holds another Gate, and whether a person farms or not each one of us comes to it. Our decision (in what to do there) decides our eternity. It's neat that Jesus chose an ordinary object to teach about gaining heaven. For that understanding and appreciation, here is the meaning behind the Faith-side of our herdname Narrow Gate.
