Welcome! Updated 08/21/14. Our results from our latest CAE test done in 12/13 are back and all are negative.
WE HAVE SOLD A GOOD DEAL OF OUR SHOW STRING. THOSE CHANGES ARE MADE AND THOSE DOES ARE NOW ON THE REFERENCE PAGE.
WE WERE HONORED TO HAVE 3 SPOTLIGHT SALE KIDS ACCEPTED 1 IN 2013 and 2 in 2014.
In 2015 we will be on standard milk test again. We will probably not LA our herd again. We also are planning to compete in the ADGA National Show.
We only had four does appraised in 2011. Everyone else was dry. Two were stale and two were almost too fresh. Still everyone fell into the Very Good and Excellent ratings!! 2012 LA scores are Dumplin 90, Dot Com 90, Dimples 88, Buttercup 88, Kookie Doe and Twitter 87 both first fresheners. 2013 LA scores Buttercup EEEE 92, Kookie EEEE91, Twitter VEVV 89. Red 86, and Gnocchi, 86 both are first fresheners. In 2014 every doe score went down. Our final LA scores went down as much as 6 points!!! Our linear traits fell and some structural cats fell as much as an E to +. so we are quite confused as to what appraiser to believe.
Our Nigerian herd is small but promising. We are striving to breed the ideal miniature dairy goat. We desire structurally correct does with well attached capacious udders.
We test all of our animals for CAE on a yearly
basis and remain CAE free - latest test results DECEMBER 2013.
Our herd is TB and Brucellosis certified and we participate in the
volunteer scrapies program.
