2011 Breeding Plan - Does Due in Jan/Feb

The first set of does have been breed for 2011. These does will be having kids in January and February. For photos of the bucks please look here.

Duck's Mini Herd Ginger Rogers - AGS Nigerian Dwarf (sire-Dean's Funny Farm Little B, dam Owl's Roost Hope)

Notes: Nice lines. We bred Ginger for the first time this year. She had good udder quality - it was hard to gauge production as I didn't milk her right away, and she only had one kid. Bred to Sam Houston.

Duck's Mini Herd Chinaberry - IDGR Grade Experimental Miniature Nubian 1st generation (sire Dean's Funny Farm Zeus, dam Dewberry NOA Nubian) blue eyes

Notes: Bred to Robin. Kid's will be first generation. We have got two fine bucks and two fine does out of this breeding. We milked her daughter Cranberry this year, and she has a nice level lactation curve and excellent udder quality. Easily hand milked.

Still Waters Cranberry - IDGR Grade Experimental Miniature Nubian 1st generation (sire Still Waters Robin, dam Duck's Mini Herd Chinaberry) blue eyes

Notes: Cranberry's udder is easy on the hands, and she's kept the milk coming in since Feb. This year she was bred to Sam Houston. (Unfortunately she wouldn't stand for Nosey - she wanted an older, more fragrant mate - so we're probably going to get more first generation babies. Lesson learned that it is better to keep the older guys around until the younger guys are fully mature.)

Still Waters Mulberry - IDGR Grade Experimental Miniature Nubian 1st generation (sire Still Waters Robin, dam Duck's Mini Herd Chinaberry) blue eyes



Notes: First Freshener. Hoping she shapes up like Cranberry. She's looking good. Bred to Nosey. Kids will be second generation.

Rio Leche Farm Lily - IDGR Grade Experiemental Nubian/Alpine (sire Mr Coffee Bean, dam Freckles)

Notes: Bred to Robin. This pair keeps giving me bucks. 5 total so far. Giving it one last shot for a doe. Lily is a solid gallon milk goat with a decently level lactation curve.
