2023-24 Herd Brochure

Dale and I have certainly enjoyed the shows we have attended in 2023 and the many friends we have been able to visit with.  We are very pleased with what our does have accomplished in the show ring this year.  However, there were two big disappointments during 2023.  The biggest was having to put our beloved CH Woest-Hoeve (Lovebug) Spittlebug to sleep.  It has left a huge hole in my heart and one that will be there for quite some time.  It is amazing the bond we form with these wonderful creatures! On the plus side we have a beautiful doeling from her this year as well as a beautiful 2-year-old.  The other disappointment is having to miss the Nebraska State Fair as both Dale and I came down with Covid after the Iowa State Fair. 

As the years start catching up with us and it becomes more difficult to show our does we very much appreciate those exhibitors who helped us out.  We found it necessary to cut our herd in half as have a lot of other breeders due to cost of feed, veterinarian expenses, lab work, antibiotics, etc.  Oh!  And the cost of hay that has skyrocketed!

Our herd is tested annually for CAE and has been negative for as many years as I can remember.  We are also free of abscesses.  The G6S status of our herdsires and dams are either normal by testing or normal by parentage.  We hope to get some DNA testing done in 2023 which we did not manage to get done in 2022.

Our kids are normally weaned at around three months of age and the use of toltrazuril is used in the prevention of coccidiosis.  I find this the most effective method of coccidiosis prevention with it being relatively easy to use.  The negative part of using toltrazuril is the rather expensive price tag on this product.  The use of VIMCO and J-Vac vaccinations for mastitis are used in our mature does along with Calvary 9 for different types of clostridium & tetanus. 

TERMS OF SALE:  If a kid is reserved prior to birth, the price is as stated on the “Kidding Schedule” page.  However, we do reserve the right to modify pricing once the kids are born if they are not preordered prior to birth.  A $100 deposit is requested to reserve a kid.  The remaining balance is due before kid is transported or picked up.  We prefer to place kids in their new homes by four weeks of age, but are willing to make arrangements to hold a kid longer if necessary.  Orders are accepted on a first requested basis.  It is recommended you make a 1st and 2nd choice to better assure you end up with a kid in the event your 1st choice does not come through.  There will be no refunds on cancelled orders.  However, if we cannot fill your order or the kid does not meet our specifications, your deposit will be refunded or held until next year, whichever you choose.  All health papers & shipping expenses are the responsibility of the buyer.  We do reserve the right to retain any animal on our sales list.

Thank you to all who have purchased animals from us.  We hope that they have become an important part of your herd.
