Welcome to Shere Country Ranch!!
And kidding has begun! The first kidding wave is done. The 2nd group is due the end of March/beginning of April. You can see the new kids here: 2017 New Arrivals. Check out the updated kidding schedule for available kids. I need to reduce my senior does down to about 10 or 12 so some very nice animals will be available
2/19/17: The first round of blood draws has been done for 2017. I started with the does due to kid. 15 does were tested for CAE on 2/19/17 and all were negative results. I hope to get dry senior does and yearlings done soon.
8/20/16: Lots of changes in the works! Some beautiful does came back home today, as well as some exceptional bucks. I will be doing limited breedings for 2017 kids and hopefully will get the breeding schedule figured out and updated shortly.
You can now see the most current Linear Appraisal Structural Scores at a glance on all animals residing in our herd that have been appraised. Check it out here: Linear Appraisal Structural Scores Overview
Why buy from us? I have worked hard to develop a herd with strong, correct conformation, milk production, and ease of hand milking. I test my herd on a regular basis for CAE and Johnes and am willing to provide customers with testing results to ensure their peace of mind. It isn't cheap to properly raise and care for goats but I make every effort to keep my animals reasonably priced. Shere Country animals have been doing very well in other herds. You can see several of them below.
