We have a small herd of Purebred French Alpine Dairy Goats and concentrate on raising very high quality animals to breed and show. All of our goats come from proven lines, including Brankton, Angel-Prairie, Nodaway, Iron-Rod, Hoach’s, and Windrush Farms. Our goats are show quality animals with sound pedigrees and very good milk production. We participate in the ADGA Linear Appraisal program, and scores in our current herd range from 88 to 91.
If you read our blogs (scroll down on Home page), you will see that these animals are also part of the family, and we enjoy caring for them. Our goats are all very healthy and are tested CAE and CL free, NC is a TB and Brucellosis free state. (Our whole herd tested negative in February 2014.) All of our breedings are supervised, so we know their due dates; we set aside the time to attend kiddings and assist as needed. Since we test all does for CAE and CL annually , we allow some of the does to dam raise their babies.
