Rivergate Stud

Miniature & pygmy goats

The home of champions

Rivergate Stud is located by the Albert River in the most northern location of the Gold Coast in Queensland. Rivergate has been breeding stud and champion miniature animals since 2009.  Rivergate endeavours to produce versatile, affordable, quality goats for showing, performance, breeding and of course, pets. By taking the utmost care in the husbandry and selection of our animals, we can truly call ourselves  "The Home of Champions".

We pride ourselves in customer service, ongoing support, constant updates and unmatched professionalism. Don't ever think twice about asking a question, there is a big chance I have asked it myself before! We have developed information booklets for general care as well as breeding and will assist buyers and goat lovers alike with any enquiry without hesitation. If you are after a genuine, honest and reliable breeder, Rivergate is the place for you! 

We are a CAE and JD tested stud and can provide all paperwork for negative test results upon request.

We are extremely proud to be foundation members of the AABMGS (Australian All Breeds of Miniature Goat Society). 


"We are a dedicated and friendly bunch of people who are working together to further develop miniature goat breeding in Australia and are inclusive of all individual goats and the individual breeding programs of all Stud owners."


Rivergate Stud uses bloodlines from all over Australia aswell as imported pygmy breeding with the intentions of producing incredible tempered and well conformed kids. Bucks are the backbone of breeding and a good buck is hard to come by, keeping in mind that the doe also holds 50 % of the bloodline so she cannot be ignored.


The owner and operator of Rivergate is Samantha Dulfer who is studying a Bachelor of Applied Science with an extended major in Production Animal Science. Having started miniature goat breeding at the age of 13, her experience, dedication and love for the animals and industry is second to none. Successfully achieving supreme champion bred animal awards.
