See how we did at the ADGA National Show!!!! Click Here
I am now taking deposits on 2014 kids. Though a deposit is not required, I highly recommend you put one down to ensure that you get the kid you want. I try to be fair and honest, and if you have told me you want a specific kid, I will keep that in mind and contact you if someone else wants the same kid you do and I never received a deposit from you. But please note, I will sell the kid to whomever gets me their deposit first. I don't like being tough like that, but I have to be fair to all parties. Thank you for understanding. :)

Thank you for your interest in my daughter Vanessa and my herds. (Vanessa's herd name is Luvruc.) We are located in Priest River, Idaho, about 45 miles northeast of Spokane, Washington.
A little bit about how we got into goats. I received my first goat as a wedding gift in 1994, a beautiful blue roan Nubian named Mirah. Though I did not have Mirah for very long, I was addicted to these wonderful animals and have had them in my life pretty continuously since 1999.
I was interested in Nubians and La Manchas, but Vanessa talked me into buying a dry Oberhasli yearling in 2001. I had no interest in that little brown goat, but I wanted her to enjoy the animals as well, so I agreed.
That first doe is our foundation animal, SG The Calisto’s Lila 1*M 05-05 +EEE 88
Lila’s temperament and ease about life eventually grew on me and I started to expand the Oberhasli breeding program, subsequently phasing out the Nubians and La Manchas in 2007.
I firmly believe that a buck can make or break a herd, and we are now using some bucks out of our own does in order to strengthen our style of animal, not only in type but also in milk production.
Each Vanjust animal requires a non-refundable $50 deposit to hold it for you. The purchase price includes ADGA registration papers, CD&T vaccines, and if age appropriate, worming. All kids are raised on pasteurized milk until 3 months old, offered grass and alfalfa hay and fresh water from 3 days old, and introduced to Elenbaas Dairy Goat Ration at 4 weeks old. My belief is the sooner the rumen starts working, the bigger, stronger, and healthier the kids will be as adults.
I hope you enjoy looking through my website as much as I enjoyed putting it together.
