Well as you can guess we have been busy with kidding season. So far we have had twenty-eight goat kids, with eleven of them being doelings and seventeen bucklings. Our farm retained (kept) five doelings and two bucklings. *We do have some buckling (wethers) available if interested* Here are a couple of them. $100.00 each or $300.00 as Bucks Intact. Sire: Little Tots Estate Oxytropis and Dam: Gypsy Moon J-Lo. *We were so impressed with this breeding, that we plan to rebreed the sire and dam*
Other news--We are looking forward to the arrival of our second American Guinea Hog piglets that are due in the next couple of weeks. We will keep a couple of barrow's for meat for our family, but will sell the others. Prices are: Gilt (female) $200.00, Boar (male breeding) $150.00, and a Barrow (fixed male for meat) $75.00. They are very docile and considered a homestead small farm hog.
Carl has planted a big part of our garden. We will have lettuce, onions, strawberry's, cantaloupe, tomatoes, green beans, broccoli, cabbage and corn. The lettuce is already up. We can't wait to start getting fresh vegetables.
On another note, we have been doing our DHI 305 day milk test. These are the two new goats to star on milk testing. Windy City Acres Bambi *D and CapraKoza AG Meg's Surprise *D. We are very excited to have several star.
