The herd of Mini Nubian goats currently consists of 9 does and 2 bucks.  Mini Nubian goats were chosen because of the quality and volume of their milk and easy to handle size.  Olivia and Mark started in the summer of 2013 as back yard milkers with two producing does, 3 yearlings not producing and one buck.  We made milk, cheese and yogurt for ourselves.   

 We are starting and finishing our days with milking goats.  This is a sure routine that brings us peace of mind everyday.   The goats are old hat with the routine too.  Goats come out of the pen, run down the ally and hop up on the stand.  Generally, we have a fair exchange of grain for milk.
