It has been three years (Spring 2011) that we completely dispersed our herd and then three months later started a new herd because I missed them way too much. We are located just south of Lincoln, being nearly in the center of the United States. We started with our original herd in September 1982 as a 4-H project for our son and daughter. Through our Nubians we have made many friends and continue to make new friends. We especially enjoy seeing our friends during the show season.

We started our new herd back up with Mojave Dunes, Jowanda Nubians and Sagebrush Nubians. At the beginning of this past summer I had our herd reduced to the number we preferred to keep it at. However, one morning this late spring I received a call from Vickie with Mojave Dunes stating that she was needing to disperse her herd and offered me the opportunity to add them to our herd. She was only going to retain a couple of older does and a few bucks. With the beautiful animals we had brought back from Vickie when we restarted our herd back up it was not a difficult decision to make. We left early July to bring back the does with a return trip planned early this fall to bring back the bucks. Needless to say, come this next spring we will need to reduce our herd back down to a manageable size which will most likely be one of the most difficult decisions I will be making. We feel God has truly blessed us with a beautiful Nubian herd.

My sister, Nancy, has been a huge help at shows pitching in and helping out with the care of them as well as in the show ring. She doesn’t realize just how much help she is.

All of our does and bucks have been CAE negative as well as free of abscesses. Those new animals brought into our herd also come from a healthy CAE negative herd. Once all the bucks are back from California we will again be testing for CAE and checking the G6S status of our herd sires. Our kids are taken from their dams at birth and raised on heat treated colostrum and pasteurized milk even though we have a negative CAE herd. Kids are normally weaned at around three months of age and the use of Baycox (toltrazuril) is used in the prevention of coccidiosis. We find it is one of the easiest methods to use, but perhaps not the least expensive way to go once they get some size on them. The kids are also vaccinated for tetanus and enterotoxemia, dewormed at one to two months of age, and our mature animals vaccinated annually for tetanus and enterotoxemia. We also vaccinate our dry yearlings and mature does with Lysigin and J-Vac to help in controlling mastitis.

TERMS OF SALE: If a kid is reserved prior to birth, the price is as stated on each doe’s page or 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. We would appreciate a $100 deposit for each kid ordered. If you are interested in a buck, please preorder as we only keep bucks that we have orders for, or ones that we will be saving as a replacement in our herd.  Balance due on kids must be paid in full before shipped or picked up. We prefer to place kids in their new homes by 4-6 weeks of age, but are willing to make arrangements to hold a kid longer if necessary. Orders are accepted on a first requested basis. We would suggest a 1st and 2nd choice for better assurance of getting that kid you want. 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 and shipping expenses are the responsibility of the buyer. We do reserve the right to retain any animal on our sales list.

Thanks to all of you in the past who have purchased animals from us. We hope that they have become an important part of your herd. We look forward to seeing all of our friends at the shows in 2015.

Thank you,
Dale & Marilyn Stertz
