DAIRY GOATS >>
GLORIOUS MILKING GIRLS>>
Adding Dairy Goats to our farm was bound to happen after working so closely with friends and their beautiful herds over the past few years. We are breeding Anglo Nubians, Toggenburgs, British Alpines,Saanens and Nigerian Dwarfs.
We drink the creamy milk, make basic cheeses too and I'm looking forward to trying my hand at soap making. These elegant finely tuned 'Ferrari's' of the goat world require a lot more feed and supplements than our minis and careful management as they are production based and can provide anywhere between 1.5 to 8ltrs a day (some individuals can provide even more than that each day)! They are incredibly sweet natured loving animals that are eager to please. They love routine and although we are just finding out feet with them we have already formed a great deal of appreciation and affection for them. Its a new challenge and there's a great deal to learn with these often fussy ladies and they have certainly elevated my stress levels considerably and workload, but yes its worth it lol.
We cannot thank the breeders of our new herd enough for entrusting their animals to our family; Linda Schmidt ~ Briamac Toggenburg Stud, John & Bec Falkenhagen ~ Idealview Dairy, Rosalie Skipper ~ Glenforslan Saanens, Peter Anderson ~ Burnslea Angalo Nubians, Deb Porter - Greenhaven Stud & Alex Berry - Down Udder Farm.
