Our breeding goals
We love our goats so much that it is important that we strive for the best animals we can breed. We aim first, to breed with a focus on milk production, structurally correct udders, and teat/orifice size. We want our animals to be exceptional milkers, giving their new owners (and ourselves), ease of milking, big production, long and level lactation, as well as delicious tasting milk. We also aim to breed animals that give a gallon a day of milk, without having to push a lot of feed. We realize that most people don’t want to, nor can afford to feed their animals exceptional amounts of feed to get high amounts of milk. For the average homesteader/family, a gallon a day is an excellent amount. We hope to be able to have solid milkers that will give a good amount on minimal feed.
Our second focus is on breed conformation. We take a couple aspects at a time to focus on and perfect before adding in other traits. Our focus is on the udder and the body conformation first, but we are also breeding for hardy goats. We want animals that are not high maintenance, that deal with parasite loads easily, and that are generally healthy all the time. Who has time to deal with goats that are constantly needing meds/wormers…
Below you will find our breeding plans for the next year. If you are interested in a kid, send us a note! We will put kids up for sale after weaning which is between 10-12 weeks from kidding. Due to just really beginning and focusing on our breeding program, we prefer to thoroughly assess our kids before making a decision on who to keep/sell, we don’t want anyone to put a deposit in hopes of a specific animal only for us not to be able to provide that animal due to the doe not providing, or that we choose to keep more than we expected. Any kids for sale will be put up after 12 weeks.
Should you choose a kid, a $100 deposit is required to hold the animal.
**We reserve the right to retain any animal we feel is necessary to our breeding program. Breedings are subject to change.
