Thanks so much for your interest in
our LaMancha herd. We have
tried to include all pertinent information on each doe but if you have any
questions or need additional information, please don't hesitate to give us a
call. A health certificate (certificate of veterinary inspection is
usually $50) as well as any additional
health tests and shipping costs including an airline approved kennel are the responsibility of
the buyer and must be paid in full prior to shipping. If you are
taking the animal across state lines out of Wisconsin, state law requires that they be
accompanied by a health certificate. We charge an additional $75
delivery fee to the airport as we ship out of Minneapolis-St. Paul International
Airport which is over a 350 mile round trip for us. We also charge a $100 labor
fee for International sales. All animals must be paid in full before they leave
the farm. We do not accept payment plans after you take possession of the
animal. You are welcome to make payments on your purchase prior to and
up until 2 weeks after they are born but they must be paid in full by that time
or they will be offered to the next herd in line and your payments will be
We receive many questions regarding
delivery and boarding of animals past a month of age. We greatly prefer that you
plan to ship/pick up your reserved kid by 4 weeks of age. We have limited space
and need to keep making room for those animals that we are keeping. If you can't
arrange to have your animal picked up or shipped, we charge $1.00 per day per
animal after 4 weeks of age. As far as delivery, it can be arranged if we are
making a trip in your direction but please
contact us ahead of time to find out costs and make arrangements. We do NOT
deliver for free. Mature animals need to be picked up within 2 weeks after
purchase unless prior arrangements are made and boarding will still be charged
on does remaining more than 2 weeks after they become available. If we are holding an animal for an
extended time as part of a delivery trip, they must be paid in full within 2
weeks after you have committed to buy them. We will not hold an animal that is
not paid in full. Please consider when a doe is due before reserving a kid. We
freshen many does in January and February and prefer not to hold these kids
until spring so please be sure you can handle that kid once he or she is a month
Kids are raised on a
strict CAE-prevention program and have been since 1988. All kids are
removed from their dam's at birth and raised on powdered colostrum and pasteurized goat's milk and each batch
of milk is carefully temped, but we do not test our herd on a
regular basis. We are more than willing to test any adult
animal for CAE at
the buyer's expense but WE WILL NOT REPLACE AN ANIMAL AFTER IT HAS
BEEN EXPOSED TO ANOTHER HERD AND LATER TESTS POSITIVE FOR ANYTHING.
Please note that our entire herd is CL vaccinated so any testing for
CL after the animal is vaccinated will result in a positive test.
Please be aware of this if purchasing from us.
Kids receive free choice clover-trefoil mix hay and water as well as a starter grain
with a coccidiastat in it. We are on a regular vaccination program using
Inforce 3 as well as Essential 3+T and the new Texas Labs CL vaccine.
With the discontinuation of the Texas Labs CL Vaccine in the summer
of 2021, we will again be vaccinating for CL using Case-Bac. Kids
will be vaccinated in the fall after birth but will not be boostered
in later years due to reactions. Animals receive
annual BoSe shots and are wormed
as needed. We feed a 16% mixed grain ration to the milking herd as well as
clover-trefoil mixed hay. Free choice
salt and minerals are available to all.
2013 and 2014 were
amazing years for us in the show ring. We finished several favorite
does and earned multiple dry legs on junior does. Caramel continued
to amaze us with her steady, high production while traveling to
multiple shows and earning multiple BIS and BUIS awards. We attended
the National Show in both St. Paul, MN in 2013 and in Louisville, KY
in 2014 and were thrilled with our placings, topping it off by
earning Best 3 Junior Does at the 2014 National Show with Kalypso,
CitCat and Cinnamon.
In 2015 we made the
decision to cut back some on showing. We attended the Iowa Dairy
Goat Association Spring Classic (quad ring show of over 400 head)
show in late May. Kalinda finished her championship there....16
months into her lactation. Maisey picked up another leg and both
Frosty and Candy Cane earned dry legs with Grand Champion Junior Doe
wins. Candy went on to be named Best Junior Doe in show. While we
attended the 2015 National Show in Redmond, OR, it was only to work on
the National Show Committee. We would have loved to have our herd
there the nearly 4000 mile northern journey through the mountains
was more than I wanted to tackle with a stock trailer and we
preferred to leave them at home in preparation for linear appraisal
just 2 weeks after Nationals.
In 2016, we again limited our
showing to the Iowa Spring Classic and Nationals. At the Spring
Classic (a quad ring show) we were 4X BOB doe (Cookie 1X and Kalista
3X), 3X GCH doe (Kalista finishing her championship) 1X RGCH with
Orangey, and 4X GCH Jr Doe (Ginger 1X, Snickers 1X and Parti Tyme
2X…each earning their dry leg) and 1X BJDIS with Parti Tyme.
Nationals earned us a 3rd place Senior kid with Snickers,
16th and 18th place senior kids with Ginger
and Parti Tyme, 8th place yearling milker with Deliah,
12th place yearling milker with Fallyn, 15th
place 5 & 6 year old with Cookie and 20th place 2 year
old with Charade. Linear in early June was amazing with all does
over 2 appraising 87 or higher. 3 does received permanent scores
with Kalinda 90 EEVE, Cookie 91 EEEE and Grey 92 EEEE…what a
2017 was a very busy year for us
personally. Both Sharla and I were on the National Show committee
and with my job of chairing the show, we had no time for our usual
spring shows. We showed at Nationals with a limited string and the
following placings: Pal 6th, Lily and Gracie 14th,
Dreamy and Cookie 17th and Ginger 20th in the
LaMancha show. Classes were all large and many lovely does did not
make the cut this year. In the Recorded Grades, Josey was 14th,
Ariel and Deliah 15th and Belle 19th. We then
attended the Iowa State Fair in August and were named the Premier
LaMancha Exhibitor of show with many top placings including 1st
place Dry yearling and 1st place Jr. Get of Sire.
Appraisal in September was amazing with Kalista and Tawny both going
permanent EX. Gracie and Orangey were also appraised EX and our two
first fresheners, Rue and Parti Tyme were both appraised 89 with Rue
appraising EX in mammary as a 1st freshener! All of our
purebred LaManchas scored 89 or higher!!
2018 has been a great year! We made the decision to skip appraisal this year as we have
appraised every year for many years and the planned May appraisal
was just too early for our cold weather location. In July we
attended the Northern WI State Fair after a hiatus of a few
years…and it was a great show. Cookie was named Best Senior Doe in
Show and Best Udder in Show in Ring 1 and Grey was named Best Senior
Doe in Show in Ring 2. Belle was named Best Junior Doe in Show in
Ring 1 also. Rue picked up a GCH leg and Deliah picked up 2 GCH legs. In junior does, Belle was 2x GCH Rec. grade junior doe. Kiwi and Butrscotch were both GCH Jr.
Does. Picking up reserve grand champion wins were Butrscotch, Fancy,
Jordan and Aurora. We also had the 1st and 2nd
place Dairy Herds as well as 1st in all of the other
group classes. In August we again attended the Iowa State Fair and
we can't stress how much we love this show and the Iowa breeders who
work so hard to put it on. It was a GREAT show!!! We had the 1st
place under 4 months kid (Brandy) , 1st and
3rd jr. kids (Confetti & Pixie), 2nd and 6th Intermediate kids
(Fancy and Raven), 1st Senior Kid (Kiwi) and 3rd and 6th Dry
yearlings. Fancy was then named RGCH Jr. Doe and our Sins Junior Get
was 1st. In the Rec. grade show, we had the 1st & 3rd intermediate
kids (Aurora and Jordan) and 1st dry yearling (Belle). Belle was
named GCH Jr. Doe and Aurora was named RGCH Junior Doe.
In the Iowa State Fair senior doe show, we had the 2nd
and 3rd yearling milkers (Truffles and Gypsy), 1st and 4th 2 year
olds (Snickers and Twix), 2nd 3 year old (Rue) and 1st 4 year old
(Gracie). Snickers was also named GCH Senior Doe. We had the 1st,
2nd and 3rd place Champion Challenge does with Snickers ultimately
being named Best of Breed and Best Udder of Breed. We also had
the 1st place Dairy Herd, Senior Get (Win), Dam and Daughter (Gracie
and Grey), 1st Produce of Dam (Gracie and Gypsy) and 1st Best 3. In
the Recorded Grade show we had the 2nd place yearling milker.
Our final show of the year was the Central WI State Fair where we
again had the GCH Junior Doe (Fancy), GCH Senior Doe (Snickers) and
BOB Doe (Cookie) on day one. We also had the GCH and RGCH Rec. grade
junior does. On day 2 we had the GCH and RGCH Junior LaMancha does
(Fancy and Raven), GCH and RGCH Senior Does (Cookie and Twix) and
Best of Breed (Cookie). We also won all the LaMancha group classes.
In the Recorded grade show we had both the GCH and RGCH junior does
with Aurora and Jordan.
2019 was a busy family year and with my involvement in the ADGA
National Show and subsequent trip to Oregon to help with the show,
we made the difficult decision to limit our shows this year.
Consequently, we only made it out to one show in early June…the
Little Falls Show in MN. We took a limited group of does and milkers,
Gabby, Hyssop and Rainy all were reserve grand champion. Flurrie was
the star of the day with 3X 1st, 2X RGCH and 1X GCH
earning her dry leg. We had a great appraisal session in late July
with Grey appraising 92 EEEE at 8 years, Orangey appraising 92 EEEE
at 6 years, Snickers appraising 92 EEVE at 3 years and Cookie
appraising 91 VEEE at 8 years following a rough delivery and
c-section. We were extremely happy with all of our scores.
As we all know, 2020 has been a difficult year. Our show plans and
linear appraisal plans have, so far, all been cancelled.
Hopefully we will be able to attend a couple of late summer/fall
shows but, if not, we will survive. Our goals to breed a
structurally correct, long-lived, high producing doe will continue.
We will continue our emphasis on high milk production and official
DHIR testing. We'll just have a bit more time to stop and smell the
flowers, and spend time with these amazing animals that make our
lives more complete.
2021 has been a super busy year. When I agreed to co-chair the ADGA
National Show we all underestimated the stress and hard work that a
show held in a Covid + world would entail. We were able to
attend the Iowa Spring Classic in early June with a full show string
and were extremely happy with our results. Lolipop was 4X 1st place
senior kid and 1X GCH Jr. Doe. Mimosa was 3X 1st place senior
yearling and 2X GCH Jr. Doe and 1X RGCH Jr. doe. Avion was 4X 1st
place junior kid and 2X Reserve GCH Jr. Doe. Our milkers all had
solid placings with Angel Dust picking up her 1st unrestricted leg
as GCH Senior doe as a yearling milker over a very large competitive
group of older does. Bluebell was 3X 1st place Rec. grade yearling
milker and Deliah picked up a couple of 1st place wins.
With my work commitments we made the decision to take a
smaller show string to Nationals but were thrilled with the outcome.
Michael's junior kid, Avion, was 3rd place and 1st place in
the youth embedded show. She then went on to be named Youth Premier
LaMancha Junior Doe. Michael was over the moon! James' Bunny was
11th place Intermediate kid out of 28. In the senior kid class,
Lolipop was 4th and Cuddles was 9th out of 26 and in the senior
yearling class Mimosa was 5th out of 38. We took a limited amount of
milkers but Angel Dust was 13th yearling milker (one of the youngest
and smallest in the class). Snickers was a star...18 months into her
lactation (fresh January 2020) she placed 12th in a very competitive
5 & 6 year old class and earned all 4 productions awards (High 305
milk and fat and High Lifetime milk and fat). The highlight was when
she was named the LaMancha Total Perfomer! And our herd was then
awarded the Herdsmanship award!
We ask for a $100 deposit to reserve kids. ($200 if the animal is
going out of the country.) This is non-refundable if you cancel your
order. We do not hold buck kids without a deposit. If the kid you
have chosen is not born or is not acceptable for us to sell, we will
refund your deposit or allow you to choose another kid. While we
will accept a deposit on a buck kid out of a first freshener, we
will make the final decision on that sale after the doe has
freshened. We will contact you as soon as possible after your kid is
born and prefer that you pick it up or make arrangements for shipping within one
month, unless prior arrangements have been made. If you plan to have your kid
shipped by air, please make arrangements to send a 300 or 400 airline approved
carrier as soon as you are notified. The balance of the payment is expected
within 2 weeks after the birth of the kid or it will be offered to someone else.
We prefer your final payment is made by money order or cash (Paypal is fine if
sent friends and family). Please
indicate a 2nd and 3rd choice kid when you send your deposit. If you anticipate
longer than a 4 week wait to pick up your animal, it must be paid in full and
boarding will be charged after 4 weeks. As always we reserve the right to retain
any kid born on the farm. Deposits will be taken in order received based on
postmark (or paypal) date.
We normally plan to retain a first kid out
of the majority of our does unless we are contacted about them but we retained
a large group of dry yearlings for 2022 so a large percentage of our doe kid crop in 2021
will be for sale. Group discounts will be available so contact us early. Please feel free
to email us if you see a particular kid you want. Prices for kids are listed on
each doe's page as well as our kidding schedule page . We will not be taking deposits on any polled doe kids for 2022
but will maintain a list of those looking for polled genetics. Available
kids will be posted on our For Sale page and also on our Facebook page. Buck
kids will only be retained if pre-ordered so please contact us early.
We will have a few select show quality dry
yearlings available in the spring of 2022 as we are holding a larger
than normal group of kids over dry this year. These will be first
come-first served so get your deposits in early. Contact us for more
information! We will also have a large group of young milkers for
sale once kidding is completed in early May 2022.
