We began with Valera Spanish goats in 2004 when we lived in Virginia. In 2006, we moved three does, three sets of twins, a buck and a wether in the back of two pickup trucks and started the farm in Missouri.
For over eleven years the Spanish proved themselves to be adaptable to weather, location and management. We added bucks and does from the Pape herd, and later a buck from Weinheimer. All goats have merits, but we have found the thriftiness of the Spanish to be unmatched. We help start many, many farms with Spanish goats both locally in Missouri and in neighboring states.
Throughout the years I became more and more interested in goat milk products and began to add dairy does to the herd. Milking a Spanish doe can be a bit of a challenge and it was to this end we decided to sell our Spanish goats and focus on an dairy herd, predominantly Alpine in breeding.
We currently have five ADGA does, a fullblood Saanen and a Boer/Saanen cross who believes she too is a dairy queen. These girls are being crossed with Liefling, a red Boer buck with a very gentle temperament. Kids from these goats will be available for sale in 2018. They will be heavy-set kids with excellent milk potential and udder structure. Great for adding to your own meat-goat herd for either milking, meat production or both.
