Dwarf goat billies known to breed large milk goats. Crossbreeds sometimes referred to as 'Kinders?'. Usually no problems for large milker to give birth of smaller kid. Problems are known to occur with Boer buck goat crosses, large kids cause trouble at birth- especially if first time for mother. Cindy had posting about goat birth troubles awhile back. RN.
