With the advent of winter, breeding season is nearly over and all does are bred.  We’ve shifted to once a day milking or does being dried off.  In our corner of Minnesota, we’ve been fortunate to have very little snow and mild temps. Our focus has turned to the Holidays and hunkering down for the real winter to come. We’re looking forward to a crop of exciting kids.

We have used a mix of live sires and AI sires in our breedings.  We are in close proximity to some of the top dairy goat breeders in the Midwest and have found that leasing and trading top quality genetics has been both an economical and advantageous way to further our goals.

 

 

 

We’ve incorporated AI into our breeding program since the early 1980s, which permits us to widen the quality and scope of our genetics. But, AI doesn’t work on every goat, so we always make sure that we have a high quality selection of live sires
