He is the newest addition to the farm. A purebred, chocolate and white, 2 year old, proven Nigerian buck. His mother and sister both have wonderful udders and produce a lot of milk, so we are hoping that he can past those traits on to his offspring for us. He has daughters on the ground, but they haven't been bred, since they are from this year.
We also put a solid dark chocolate chamoisee doe on hold to make payments on. She is unrelated to him or the other doe we have on hold. Her mother is on 305 day milk test and has milked 323 pounds to date and her older full sister has milked 178 pounds with the highest butterfat content at 8.0%, of the breeder's herd.
