Dairy Goats

 

We have been keeping dairy goats since 2005.  

Here are the breedings for our 2021 kidding season.

2021 Kids are here!

On October 26, 2020 we bred Pepper, our two year old Lamancha doe to Buddy, our own young half Nubian/half Lamancha buck born on our farm this spring. The due date is March 25, 2021. Pepper had two little girls on March 28, 2021.  Mom and babies are all doing well. The girls were disbudded on April 5, 2021. They are Paprika and Belle.

On October 27, 2020 we bred Molly, our 3/4 black Nubian to Gideon, our big black Lamancha buck. The due date is March 26, 2021. Molly had a boy and girl on March 24, 2021. Both are doing well! Molly's kids were disbudded on March 29, 2021. The kids are George and Hyacith.

On November 3, 2020 we bred Caramel, our yearling half Lamancha, half Nubian to Billy, our young Lamancha buck born on our farm this spring. Just to make sure we also brought out Gideon. Due date would be April 2, 2021. Caramel had one HUGE boy, weighing 12 pounds, on April 1, 2021 - no fooling! Grover, the big boy, was disbudded on April 5, 2021.

We have a new baby buck!

Nicholas came to us from Creighton Dairy Goat farm in Stanwood, MI. He is a pure Nubian, and was born on 12-21-20. He will be ready to breed our does by this fall, and will bring ears back into our herd for the 2022 kidding season.
