There are a few problems with this chart, such as no statistics on true full sized Oberhasli, as well as size on Toggenburgs, and their butterfat... 2.8% butterfat and up is normal for the Toggenburg. The does are acceptable at a minimum of 27" and 110 lbs. They are the smallest of the standard sized dairy goat. Also they and the Oberhasli, which had been called Swiss Alpine until late 70's and then called by proper name of Oberhasli, are the 2 oldest thought to be dairy breeds.

You need to update the chart.
Where it should say "Oberhasli" on the first page it says "mini-Nubian" even though the mini Nubian is on the second page as well.

I'd like to learn more about the flavor and strength of flavor typical for each breed.
