We do not separate kids from their mothers, but instead spend a lot of time with them, so they recognize us as part of the herd and come to us when called without expecting a treat.

In addition to high quality grain, enriched with vitamins and minerals, we offer them free access minerals and high quality orchard/timothy mix hay or orchard/alfalfa mix hay.

Our Goats are registered with the ADGA
 

Our herd is tested annually, and is confirmed CAE negative, is CL and Johne's free
 

CAE (Caprine Arthritic Encephalitis) is a viral infectious disease, transmitted primarily to kids through milk.  It became widespread, when dairies pooled their milk and bottle fed, thereby infecting the entire kid crop.  CAE is detrimental to dairy herds, because it can ruin udders and shorten the useful lifespan of the goat, causing them tremendous pain. Encephalitic seizures usually kill infected kids quickly.


CL (Caseous Lymphadenitisis a chronic contagious disease affecting mainly sheep and goats. This disease is also called pseudotuberculosis or often "abscesses," and has been referred to as the curse of the goat industry throughout the world.
CL is an infection of goats, caused by Corynebacterium pseudotuberculosis. It is also referred to as "abscesses", because of the peripheral swelling, rupture, and drainage of pus from affected lymph nodes. The prevalence of CL in the commercial goat herds may be as high as 30%. If abscesses affect more than one lymph node, the carcass will be condemned at slaughter. Decreased body weight and milk production also occurs, and reproductive efficiency is often lower when these animals have developed internal abscesses.

Johne's disease, a chronic (years) mycobacterial infection, affects principally the lower small intestine of many ruminants. Cattle, sheep and goats and less frequently deer, llamas, bison and other ruminants are all susceptible to the disease. Johne's disease usually refers to the clinical condition associated with the mycobacterial infection, where as the term "Paratuberculosis" usually refers to the state of being infected with the causative organism M. Paratuberculosis but not necessarily having clinical signs.

Clinical signs of Johne's include weight loss and diarrhea with a normal appetite. Signs are rarely evident until two to several years after the initial infection, which usually occurs soon after birth. Other than the loose consistency, the manure appears normal. Several weeks after the onset of diarrhea a soft swelling may occur under the jaw (bottle jaw). Bottle jaw or intermandibular edema is due to protein loss from the bloodstream into the intestinal tract. Animals at this stage of the disease, will not live very long, perhaps a few weeks at most.


We only breed does with negative test results.  If you are purchasing a kid and would like to have it tested, we can have it performed, before the kid leaves our premises. However, this will be at an additional cost to the buyer. In our opinion testing and using negative stock is the most effective way of eradicating this disease.

All goats are sold "as is" and all sales are final after the animal leaves our premises.  This policy is for the bio-security of our herd.
