In front here is our Gemma (LaMancha) running to me. She is leaving behind Brie, Nellie, Jericho (Mini Nubians), Trinity & one of her babies(LaManchas), Our main goal is to have goat's milk. We use goat's milk for so many reasons in our dog program. We plan to start making soap and other things! We have to breed them to get the milk so we will have available kids from time to time. Usually kids (baby goats) are born February-April and ready to go April-July.
The LaMancha dairy goat is born with its unique small ears. In fact, that is the distinguishing feature of this breed. The LaMancha also has a very positive disposition It is inquisitive and loveable, easygoing and cooperative. The breed has excellent dairy temperament and is an all-around sturdy. The LaMancha is a dependable dairy goat, producing quality milk with high butterfat and protein over a long period of time. All of our LaManchas are registered with American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA).
The Mini-Nubian is a mid-sized goat being of mixed Nigerian Dwarf and Nubian origin. It is known for being a graceful and elegant. These are ideal milking goats because they are a smaller sized goat that are bred to be great milkers. They actually have a higher percentage of protein and butter fat than LaManchas. They are smaller therefore producing a smaller quantity. Mini Nubian Goats are known for having long, floppy ears that are adorable. All of our Mini Nubians are registered with Miniature Dairy Goat Association (MDGA).
