Anglo Nubians. The old fashioned British bloodlines.
Over here we have Australian bloodlines being introduced which have been bred more towards the dairy end of the spectrum rather than the british dual purpose bloodlines, the original african Nubian bloodlines the british bred from are too hot-climate adapted and don't do to well in a temperate climate but are also dual purpose.

So here in the midsouth or at least memphis TN we are considered the top end of the subtropics and it's hot and humid with an average rainfall of 54 inches. I always thought we were temperate but I guess we're in that weird gray area. So you think that type might do well here?
The Nubian is unofficially considered dual purpose. Years ago some breeders tried to have it meat added to the breed description with ADGA, but the proposal failed. It was highly controversial. I'm not sure why, as it seems like a selling point to me, but then I don't raise Nubians.
