All 2016 kids are sired by our badger 100% Spanish Weinheimer buck, “Hoss.”
Update: We have sold out of all kids for 2016.
Our kidding season was short, lasting only two weeks, and the eighteen does did very well with four sets of triplets! Doelings were retained for replacements as our herd is aging, and the top gaining bucklings went to herds as future herdsires. The remaining bucklings went to market- as is our standard- only the best should be breeding.
We are going to use two Valera/Weinheimer bucks on the does this fall. “Hoss” has moved on to a new farm since we decided to keep all his daughters. With upwards of thirty does kidding in the Spring, we will have doelings to sell in June 1017. Most kids will be 100% Spanish but we will have some excellent composite-bred kids with good hybrid vigor.
