Anglos Nubians are an all purpose goat useful for meat, milk and hide production.  It is a large, proud and graceful dairy goat.  They are a tall, slender animal with very long, pendulous ears that hang close to the head.  They carry a decidedly Roman nose and are always short-haired.  They come in an array of colours but commonly they come in black, red or tan.  The most striking features of the species is their size and their affectionate temperament.
