Dorothea and I began raising Angora goats with the guidance and help from Dr. David Pugh of Auburn University School of Veterinarian Medicine. Dr. Pugh would bring students to the farm on field trips and help us improve the quality of our herd and pasture. Following a failure with Boer goat embryos we decided to raise goats that have been here in the south for many years while slowly introducing Boer blood into the herd. At present our herd consists of 18 adults.
Dorothea and I enjoy the kid goats when they are about 2 to 4 weeks of age. Seeing them jump and spring around in the air is a refreshing site. If there is anything for them to climb up on they'll play king of the hill. And generally we have a kid or two where bottle feeding is necessary which then causes the kid to grow up being an ideal pet.
We generally have goats for sale throughout the year.
