Ozark Jewels Dairy Goats

Breeding for Health and Productivity

Cocoa(picture taken right after milking)

If I had to pick a favorite doe, out of all my girls, I think I would have to pick Cocoa.  She isn't beautiful, she isn't registered, but she is a good girl.  Cocoa is 1/2 Lamancha-1/2 Alpine.  She is a steady milker, topping 1 to 1-1/2 gallons at her peak.  She is an easy-keeper, easy to milk, great attitude, calm, calm, calm. Has good conformation, nice mammary....I could have a herd of Cocoas and be supremely happy. Cocoa had the misfortune to be on the recieving end of a rather cold disbudding iron way back when, the results are the bad scurs she has instead of a smoothly disbudded head.  But she manages with them quite well and I keep them trimmed away from her head.  Cocoa kidded with buck and doe twins this year, the doeling I am retaining in my herd. UPDATE: I lost Cocoa in mid June very unexpectedly.  One of the saddest days that I have had since starting in goats.  Heres to the memory of a really great doe.

Daughter retained in herd.

 

Escapade is....Escapade!  She is such a nut and there is not another like her.  She is a very enjoyable goat to work with and watch.  She isn't too pushy, but she certainly lets you know what she wants.  She was my very first Lamancha doe and its her fault that I got hooked.  Escapade is somewhere between dark brown and black, depending on the light.  She is a shorter goat, long-bodied though.  Decent mammary, but could use some improvements.  Very milky, easily giving 1-1/2 gallons a day as a 7 year old doe.  I just love this doe.
