Excellence. . .

Our goats feature good muscling, wide and deep bodies, good udders, low maintenance feet, superb maternal instincts, parasite tolerance, and great personalities.  We strive to raise solidly built, medium-size goats.  To us, medium-sized is mature does in the 90-110 lb range and bucks in the 150-175 lb range.

Since 2001, 100% purebred, registered myotonic goats are all we've raised.  They're healthy, happy and well-bred.

Disease status. . .

In 2005 we realized that we had several goats with CL (caseous lymphadenitis).  We culled all goats and started over on a "clean" portion of our property.  There hasn't been an abcess on a goat since.

We have tested extensively for CL, CAE and Johne's disease since 2005.  None of our goats has ever tested positive for any of these diseases.  At this time (2016) we feel we are at very low risk for infection by any of these three diseases, although we will continue testing.  Our most recent testings were:  April 2013, when we tested all goats over 1 1/2 years old for Johne's disease.  April 2014, when we tested half (12) of our adult goats for CL, CAE and Johne's.  March 2015, when we tested all goats over one year old for CL and Johne's.  In the summer of 2015 we bought five does from a herd in Florida.  They were tested for CL, CAE and Johne's and were negative.  In April 2016 we tested all goats over one year old (except the FL does) for CL, CAE and Johne's.  All were negative.
