How to recognize a quality dairy goat

I know everyone has a different idea of what a quality dairy goat looks like and milks like.  I would like to just share a post that I am a large fan of that has many pictures to help you understand what traits are favorable and unfavorable.  This knowledge can help you understand what to start breeding towards.  You want a milker that can make a lot of milk, yes, but you want it to be able to move well and function well for a long time.  Working on quality legs, great udder attachments, and good width and depth will help your herd be productive for a longer period of time.  I think all breeders should pay attention to immune system of their herd as well and include this factor in deciding which ones to keep and which ones to part with.  Here is the link to the page that has pictures and descriptions of different parts of the dairy goat-link page
