Future milk producers
Congratulations to Susan Kuha of Able Valley Farm! Her buck, Grasse Acres Elvis, became a finished champion this year, 2015!!!! His record stands at 3 grands, 5 reserves, 1 best of breed and 1 best of show!
ADGA Linear Appraisal was completed on July 30, 2015. We are very proud of our goats and were very happy with the knowledge and professionalism of our appraiser. We especially appreciated the time she spent with us giving feedback and answering questions! See the More About Goats page on this website to see information regarding understanding linear appraisal scores.
We are so excited for 2015 which brings us new breeding stock from Dill’s A Little Goat Farm! We consistently strive to maintain and build our herd to improve excellence in the milk pail!

Ellen Dill commented on Dunn’s sire, Dill’s RD Big & Rich *B, “There’s no doubt in my mind that this young man is a cross between two does that are absolutely the BEST to ever walk through this herd. His dam and sire’s dam were two of the first Nigerians to earn their Superior Genetics designations. His dam SGCH Dill’s XM Keena 4*M is the 2013 Reserve National Champion Nigerian Dwarf and is listed on the USDA’s Elite Doe list. His sire’s dam SGCH NC PromisedLand PAL Macarena 5*M was 1st place, 1st udder at two ADGA National shows as a 2 and 4 year old.”
This statement is from a post by Ellen Dorsey from Dill’s A Little Goat Farm…our buck Dill’s Ronnie Dunn *B and Dill’s Double Bourbon On Ice are out of these lines! Very happy and proud to have them in our breeding program!
…a Nigerian that produces 787 pounds of milk is eqivalent to a 3001 pound Alpine. I’m going to round it up to 800 pounds and highlight the does in my herd that produced 800 pounds or more in their 2015 lactation.
MCH/GCH Dill’s FH Doo Wop 5*D/*M (20 1/2″ Tall) 8-09 324 844 53 36
