We have confirmed that 11 of our does are bred and will kid between mid February until mid March 2023. We have begun a reserve list and still have openings for both doelings and bucklings. Check out who is bred to who on the Breeding Pairings page. We have also received word that our entire herd is CAE, CL and Johnes negatve. Please watch our Facebook page for updates.
My name is Pat Blank. My husband Terry and I moved to our acreage in NE Iowa 36 years ago. We started with two pygmy goats and loved them, but discovered their dairy counterparts the Nigerian Dwarfs in 2000. We had some of the first of the breed in Iowa and have watched their popularity grow especially in the last 5 years. Our herd name is now permanently registered with the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA). We are also members of American Goat Society (AGS) and Nigerian Dairy Goat Association. Our herd tested negative in September 2022 for CAE, CL and Johnes. We dam raise our babies, but handle them daily so they are people friendly without being obnoxious.
