Welcome to our home on the web! All of our breeding stock is CAE free and raised CAE prevention. We test twice per year with Biotracking. We are TB/Brucellosis certified and accredited. We have never had any cases of CL or Johnes, and offer that testing at a buyers' expense. All our animals that we have tested have been negative. Does and kids are vaccinated every 6 months with CDT and Bo-Se and are de-wormed regularly. We feed a 16% mare and foal feed with oats and beet pulp. Hay provided is Perennial Peanut hay, Orchard alfalfa and limited alfalfa to milkers and kids. Our theory is that good genetics can not get you anywhere without great management! We encourage buyers to do the same.
2016 was full of highs and lows, sadly we lost SGCH Harmony Woods Madeira EX 91 this spring. We are ever greatful to have her daughter Moment and Moments 2016 daughter Mai Time to carry on the legacy. We only attended one show in 2016, due to taking a new job. We were thrilled to get 2x GCH on our homebred buck Manhatten and 1x GCH on South Fork Hailey's Comet, our new co-own herdsire! Both boys also did very well on linear appraisal in 2016. We were fortunate to acquire an exceptional herdsire from Kastdemur's Lamanchas and are beyond excited to see his kids. We also started partipating in ADGA Plus, so all our current herdsires as well as 3 mature does are DNA tested. We also alpha-casein tested our entire herd - bucks, senior does and kids. As a hobby cheesemaker, this is a program we really believe in! We were excited that all our herdsires carry at least one A allele, and two are A/A! We also have 3 A/A does. We do have some that carry lower allele sets and plan on keeping that in mind when breeding them. At this point, all are bred to and A/A buck to produce all heterozygous offspring that carry one A allele (at least!). We will continue to test any animals retained in our herd.
