Thank you for your interest in our dairy goat herd. We have been raising dairy goats since 1980, our first goats being a 4-H project for our youngest son, Richie. Our herd consisted strictly of Nubians until 1988 when we added our first LaMancha doe. It didn't take long for them to steal our hearts and take over the entire barn! Our herd now consists totally of LaManchas. This is our 25th year on DHIR test, and we have had the top milk and butterfat LaMancha in the state of Colorado for the past 22 years.
We have been on a strict CAE prevention program since 1988, and we will continue to do so because it works! Every kid is taken at birth - every birth is attended! All our kids are raised on heat treated colostrum and bottle fed pasteurized milk. In addition the entire herd is vaccinated for tetanus and entero and dewormed regularly. We feed the highest quality alfalfa available, a 16% protein grain mix, and free choice of salts and minerals.
2012 was a busy, hectic year for us. It started out with a population explosion of babies which, with 54 kids born, set an all time record for kid births at our farm. And 43 of those kids were born in the first 2 weeks of March!! It was just crazy, but I did it! I am also President of the Colorado Dairy Goat Association, so with our club hosting the National Show this year, that meant lots and lots of time spent helping with that. By the time June rolled around were were into that horrible record heat, and that made just every day chores pretty miserable. The National Show was a huge success, the only hitch was that monsoon rainstorm on arrival day, which turned out to be the only rain we had all summer. It was just too crazy for us to attend any shows before Nationals, so we only went to the last show of the season this year. It was very rewarding, with Hailey finishing her championship and also having a BDIS win. Disco and Taffy were right behind her with each of them being Res. GCH, Cookie and BonBon each got their dry legs. It was a great way to end the season! I am hoping for a less hectic, more normal type of year in 2013!!
The following sales list offers prices on kids available for the 2013 kidding season. In order to get the herd to a more manageable size for me to care for, we are again planning to sell more milkers after they have freshened and the majority of our kid crop will be offered for sale. Extended milk records are available on request.
A $100.00 deposit is required on all orders, with the balance due upon notification of birth. If the balance is not received within 2 weeks the kid will be offered to someone else. We do reserve the right to our choices of replacement animals, so, if possible, please select a first and second choice kid. If both choices of kids are unavailable, your deposit is refunded. NO refunds of deposits on canceled orders. For animals ordered after birth we do not guarantee these prices. We will take deposits on bucks out of first fresheners, but must make our final decision on that sale after the doe has freshened. We will not sell any kid unless we feel it is of outstanding quality. This does not mean that all kids sold will be grand champions, but should compete well. If any animal is found to be genetically unsound or infertile it will be replaced, contingent upon receiving a vet’s signed statement that the problem was of genetic origin. All shipping costs and health certificates are the buyer’s responsibility.
Thank you to all of the breeders who purchased animals from us in 2012. Our records and pictures are updated so take a look at what is available for 2013. Please check back often for more updates and feel free to contact us with any questions you might have.
