History

As a child, Jonell's family raised Nubian dairy goats to provide milk for the family.  Jonell missed having the fresh milk so in March 2008, we decided to raise our own goats.   We purchased a kinder doeling (Maybell) and a Nubian doe in June 2008.  We loved our kinder doeling's personality and compact size, so we decided to start our own line of Kinders.  We purchased another Nubian doe and 2 pygmy bucks in 2009.  Our first attempt was unsuccessful, but the following breeding season (2010) we had our first kinder triplets born on the farm.

We were soon disappointed to discover that there wasn't really a market for Kinders in our area.  So in the late fall of 2011, we decided to sell out of the Kinders and focus on our Nubians.  In August of 2011 we participated in our first Linear Appraisal thru American Dairy Goat Association.  We received very valuable information from the appraisal session and plan to continue to have our herd appraised each year.  We are also planning to start doing milk tests on our does.  We feel that the does that we have selected are very good milkers, but it would be great to have the test results to prove it.






All adult goats tested CAE Negative on 3/27/2010, 3/26/2011, 3/18/2012, 4/29/2013 thru BioTracking.
