We have been raising dairy goats since 2004. Our herd has been certified “Animal Welfare Approved” since 2010, the gold standard in pasture based livestock production certification programs. Over the years, we have made significant improvements in the genetics of our herd, focusing on overall soundness and solid conformation, along with high milk components (butterfat and protein) and longevity. Several of our sold dealings have placed in the tops of their classes at county and state fairs throughout the years. Our breeding goals for the herd are to improve overall conformation and health, longevity, duration of lactation and milk components.
All of our does and bucks are registered through the American Dairy Goat Association or ADGA, and we will complete the paperwork for you so you can register their offspring, should you choose. We have tested our entire herd for CAE, CL and Johnes (CAE every fall, Johnes in fall 2018, CL in 2017). All have tested negative for all three diseases since we started our commercial operation in 2005. Livestock Animals at lower rates
Our kidding season runs early March through mid May. While we retain about 12-20 doelings for replacements each year, we sell many of our doe kids as well as a few breeding buck kids. We have purebred Nubians and La Mancha as well as Nubian X La Mancha crosses (anything from 50% of each breed to 7/8 either Nubian or La Mancha. Crosses can be registered as “Experimental Grade through the American Dairy Coat Association (ADGA). We have good milk records (Agsource DHI) for 2007-18 for all dams, and you can view these records by darn at the ADGA website:
