Welcome to the Farm!
Calves are arriving througut the year, and the 2014 goat kids are ready for new homes. We also will have available a select few yearling does as well. These goats are heavily Spanish, from 100% to no less than 5/8 Spanish. If you are looking for hardy goats, send us a note on the Contact Page.
2014 Kids Remaining:
2 Choice Bucklings
5 Grade Bucklings
We recently received a 3 yr old Weinheimer Spanish buck, in addition to a registered Myotonic. Keeping a heavy Spanish influence in the herd, we seek to improve the goats through hybrid vigor.
News! All our Irish Dexters are now sampled and test results in! The entire herd is officially PHA free! Each Irish Dexter is also DNA Genotyped and tested for Beta Casein.
We test each calf, regardless of parental results, for Chondrodysplasia, Pulmonary Hypoplasia with Anasarca (PHA), Beta Casein, color profile and we DNA genotype both males and females.
Results of these and additional tests are posted with each Dexter on the Irish Dexter Cattle page.
