We began our small herd of Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats in 2010, We love the sweet milk and their lovely temperaments. When we visited our first farm we just fell in love with them! Soon after that we brought home two doelings! In the spring of 2013 we added our first LaMancha doeling from Cliff Parker at Longvu LaManchas. We have enjoyed the fresh, rich, creamy milk, making cheeses and ice creams to enjoy! We enjoy showing our goats in open shows as well as an occasional 4-H fair. Our goal is to produce dairy goats that can put it in the pail and win in the show ring all at the same time!
Our Nigerian herd consists of some great bloodlines like: TX Twincreeks, Goodwood, Rosasharn, Fairlea, MI Sugarcreek, NC PromisedLand, Stonewall's, Prairie Woods, Buttin'Heads, Old Mountain Farm, Poppy Patch, Dill's, Gay-Mor, and many more!
Our LaMancha herd has lines like: Kastdemur's, Autumn Acres, South-Fork, Lynnhaven, Longvu, Shady Lawn, Lucky*Star, Little Rainbow, Tempo, and more!
We take our herd health very seriously, we only buy goats that come from tested, well cared for herds. We vaccinate for CD&T yearly, and supplement with copper and selenium according to each goats needs.
We have started mixing our own grains, and I think they seem to be doing extremely well on it! our mix contains Oats, Barley, BOSS, Alfalfa Pellets and Blue Seal Sunshine Plus. The Amount is adjusted for each goat according to their condition. We feed a grass mix hay twice a day.
If you are new to goats, or are interested in any of ours, please don't hesitate to contact us! We would love to hear from you! We love to talk about goats :)
