We started our herd in 2015 with 4 doelings, and we still have those same girls! Over these last 5 years, we have learned A LOT!! We have learned a lot about everything from which genetics are more dominant, what an easy milking udder feels like, what that standard looks like in a goat, and how to apply the "numbers" to a goat or our breedings. We breed for beautiful colors, nice lines, level bodies, nice, big, east-to-milk udders, and for them to be social. As you will notice, our girls have some interesting names. The Hubs decided on the ABC theme and I chose 16th century English names. Although most of our girls will keep to this theme, some of them do end up being named by the kids :). And now in 2020, we changed the name game again when we bought Linus (aka High Roller) in.
Through the years that we have been breeding and participating in the ADGA performance programs, we have learned so much that we apply to how we choose breedings and how we manage our herd. We continue to research and read to better our understanding of this amazing animal. Just this year, we searched and searched for our "Unicorn Buck" and we found him in Sugar Moon V High Roller "Linus". We are REALLY looking forward to this year's kidding season! Since picking up Linus, we have added a couple more absolutely stellar fellas!
We currently are ADGA members and will soon be joining the AGS family. The performance programs we participate in are ADGA's Linear Appraisal and DHIA Milk test (we also offer DHIA Testing services to the local surrounding area). We also DNA all animals that leave the farm. If you have any questions about any of our animals or their management, feel free to contact us to ask.
