Front ends

The front end of the first one on the left is much too pinched. The heart and lungs cannot function properly when pinched as shown in the first illustration.


  1. The third illustration is the one we Kinder breeders want. A wide chest with an extension of brisket Large neck that smoothly blends into the shoulder area. This is a must for our dual purpose goat. Breeders need to be very careful because we do not want to go too far to the dairy side. We are seeing Kinder goats across the country going to far to the dairy side so this is the time to make a correction.

  2. Watch that point of shoulder. Don't let the point of shoulder show with no meat between those front legs.You need a protrusion (extension of brisket)between those front legs.
