Nubilop Acres after complete dispersal of our herd in the Spring of 2011 is still in the process of rebuilding our registered purebred Nubian show quality herd.  We are located just south of Lincoln, being nearly in the center of the United States.  It doesn’t take very long to fall in love with these beautiful Nubians.  They entered our lives in September 1982, as a 4-H project for our son and daughter.  We have always raised Nubians with the exception of a few years when our daughter had a couple of Alpines.  It was a welcome relief to get back to just the Nubians – we love their disposition, beautiful ears and fun colors.  It has been through our Nubians that we continue to make new friends as well as looking forward to seeing old friends at all of the shows. 

One of the reasons for my decision to sell the herd was that my Mother had a stroke while visiting us here at our home.  God knew that I could not care for my Mother and our Nubians at the same time and he was absolutely right.  My Mother lived with us for a good two months after her stroke which required 24-7 care.  Once she was situated comfortably in an Assisted Living facility it was a couple of months later that I knew that I wanted Nubians to become a part of our lives again as I missed them very much.    Needless to say, we took a couple of trips to California, Texas and Arizona to bring back the start of our new Nubian herd.

We cannot thank Vickie with Mojave Dunes, Jowanda Nubians and Sagebrush Nubians for giving us such a tremendous start with our herd.  We never dreamt that we would start with the quality of Nubians we have.  Dale asked me if I wished we had our old herd back and my response to him was, “There will always be a place in my heart for those beautiful does, but God has blessed us with a new beginning and the Nubians he has blessed us with have already woven their way into my heart”.   Enough said on that subject – we are so very pleased with our new herd.   During the 2013 show season I had several judges comment that they had not seen anyone sell their herd and come back in such a short time with the quality of animals we have.  My response was that it was not in my hands, only that my prayers were answered that we might have a beautiful show herd again.  I would like to give a special thanks to my sister, Nancy, who has faithfully traveled with us to most of the shows helping care for and show the does as well as helping prepare them for show here at home. 

All of our does and bucks have been CAE negative as well as free of abscesses.  We will be CAE testing again this October/November 2013 and results will be posted.  The kids are immediately taken from their dams at birth and bottle raised on heat treated colostrum and pasteurized milk.   They are normally weaned at around three months of age.  We use Baycox (toltrazuril) in the prevention of coccidiosis faithfully every two weeks for our kids and find that it is one of the easiest products to use and most effective from our standpoint.  The kids are also vaccinated for tetanus and enterotoxemia and dewormed for the first time between one to two months of age.   We vaccinate our mature animals for pneumonia which helps since we have such extreme fluctuations in temperatures with damp and cold to hot and humid.

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 a kid.  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 2014

Thank you,
Dale & Marilyn Stertz
