Black Eagle Ranch

Black Eagle Ranch Shell Rock Iowa

Our Fall breeding pairs are set and we are pleased to confirm that 12 of our does have been ultrasound confirmed pregnant. We are proud to offer our senior buck Moon Shadow who placed First in his class at the Iowa Dairy Goat Association Spring Classic and his beautiful son Cashman who brought home Reserve Grand Champion honors in that same show. Mr. Wonderful will also cover a handful of does this season. Please contact us here or by Messenger on our Facebook page to be put on our reservation list for 2022 kids. Our reserved list for registered kids is nearly full, but we have space for reservations for Fern and Genevieve's kids who will not be registered. The entire herd was tested for CL, CAE and Johnes in September and all 17 BE Ranch goats returned negative results.

Our Story:

My name is Pat Blank. My husband Terry and I moved to our acreage in NE Iowa 35 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 2021 for CAE, CL and Johnes. We dam raise our babies, but handle them daily so they are people friendly without being obnoxious.
