Black Eagle Ranch

Black Eagle Ranch Shell Rock Iowa

Our two bucks have wrapped up their assignments for breeding our 9 does for kids that will arrive in February 2024. Our vet has ultrasound confirmed the breeding of each of them. We have received word that our entire herd is CAE, CL and Johnes negatve. Because of an overabundance of Nigerian Dwarf goats in the Marketplace, we have sharply limited our breeding program for 2024. Keep this in mind if a Black Eagle Ranch goat is on your wish list. Please watch our Facebook page for updates. Check out the Breeding Pairs tab.

Our Story:

My name is Pat Blank. My husband Terry and I moved to our acreage in NE Iowa 37 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  May 2023 for CAE, CL and Johnes. We dam raise our babies, but handle them daily so they are people friendly without being obnoxious.
