The Kinder goat is a dual-purpose, mid-sized breed developed in Washington State in 1986, at Zederkamm Farm. Later, the breed association was formed and the breed was trademarked.
A first generation Kinder is the offspring of a registered Pygmy and registered full-blood Nubian. Each subsequent generation must be bred Kinder to Kinder. The animals must be registered - there are no "grade" or "percentage" Kinders.
The ideal Kinder is prolific, productive, and good-natured, well-suited to provide both meat and milk for the family.
