Goat Breeding Plans - Fall 2023 for Spring 2024

Limited Time Offer - Help Us Prove Our Goats

If you participate in linear appraisal, milk testing, or shows, we have an offer for you!

Since we both have full-time jobs on top of our farm, we have trouble making it to events, but we KNOW that our herd is filled with superstar genetics! Help us prove it – for each intact 2024 doeling or buckling, we are happy to pay the original buyer $50 for the first awarded milk star, linear appraisal, and/or show award that he/she receives in the original buyer’s care, for a possible total of $150 per Oberhasli or $100 per Mini Nubian (Mini Nubians unfortunately aren’t eligible for Linear Appraisal).


Mini Nubian Pairings

We are VERY excited about our Mini Nubian breedings – every single one has a pedigree of nearly perfect udders, tons of milk, and gorgeous conformation! We value those traits over fancy colors BUT some members of our herd do carry moonspots, the polled (aka hornless) gene, and blue eyes. For our First Fresheners, we will most likely wether bucklings, unless the girls absolutely WOW us with their FF udders. All Mini Nubian wethers will be $125-225 each, depending on eye coloring/whether polled. Doelings and intact bucklings can be registered with MDGA and TMGR under our herdname JKShrunkTheKids. We reserve the right to collect up to 30 straws from any intact buck that we sell, at any time during his life, for the cost of collection. If you click the name of a goat, you will be directed to pages containing their pedigrees and more family photos. 

On small screens, you may need to scroll sideways to see the whole table below. The last two columns show claims in our paid reservation list and free interest list. Paid reservations will get priority over free interest (and we still get dibs over all).

Prices are subject to change based on how kids unfold.

Honey has a looong and level topline and socked-on udder attachments. The only real thing we might change is increasing her teat size. They’re easy enough to milk by hand and machine with ND inflations, but are the smallest in our herd. Ron comes from a pedigree with excellent udders, and he should also add a little more depth, so we’re excited to see how their kids turn out! Hopefully they inherit Ron’s ears, haha. 

  • Kids will be 3rd Generation

Rowena is gorgeous and we are so excited to have her! The only things we might want to improve are her rear udder height, arch and very slightly droopy topline. Encore has ridiculously well-attached udders and conformation on both sides. Rowena has not been milk tested, but she is a power milker bred to produce for multiple seasons, so we predict that she will easily earn her star. If all goes well, their bucklings will earn their *B.

    • Kids will be 2nd Generation
    • Possible moonspots, blue eyes, roaning
    • $600 for doelings
    • $450 for bucklings – strong potential to have *B

    These two LOVE each other and are constantly hanging out across the fence, so we were excited to finally bring them together! They both have very similar calm personalities and massive amounts of milk in their recent pedigrees. Dolly’s maternal grand-dam has multiple MDGA Top Ten milk weight awards (Green Gables DT Southern Belle). Smoothie’s dam (Mosaic’s Chantilly Lace) and maternal grand-dam (Foggy Fork Farm Cascading Monsoon) are also MDGA Top Ten milkers, in both weight and butterfat. Dolly is our favorite of our Mini Nubian dry yearlings, so we can’t wait to see how she freshens!

    • Kids will be 5th Generation
    • Possible moonspots, blue eyes, polled

    Lady has a pedigree of VERY nice udders and heavy milk. Her dam is one of her breeder’s best milkers. She’s still growing out, but her rump is a bit steep so far and her brisket could use some definition, so we are breeding her to Hot Shot, our buck with the flattest topline and a decent brisket. He comes from a VERY milky line with excellent conformation except for their ears, so we are excited to see how their kids turn out! Hopefully their kids get Lady’s nice pendulous ears haha.

    Swiss’ maternal line is known for parasite resistance and less frequent hoof trimming. Swiss’ paternal line is a very strong one and one of our favorites out of Green Gables (Cali’s Grand Finale).

    Our jaws dropped to the floor when we were buck shopping and saw Wylee – he looks stunning, and he should! He is the son of FMCH Blackberry’s Charcoal and Blackberry’s BQ Lunar Eclipse. Lunar Eclipse is the son of the one & only CA Blackberry’s TB Mat Trang V87 VEVE (daughter of the 2022 ADGA Nationals Grand Champion) and VCH Blackberry’s BMM Blue Quartz!

    Their kids will be 3rd gen and might inherit moonspots. Swiss has a very light one on her side and Wylee might have hidden ones, since both of his parents are spotted.

    Oberhasli Pairings

    We went out of our way to find Obers with the BEST lineage we could, from some of the top names in the country, so we cannot wait to see how this year’s kids turn out! Because all of these girls are First Fresheners, we will most likely be wethering any bucklings. All Oberhasli wethers will be $125 each. If the girls’ udders turn out to be STUNNING, we might consider selling intact bucklings if there is interest. Doelings and intact bucklings can be registered through ADGA under our herdname JKHerdItAll. We reserve the right to collect up to 30 straws from any intact buck that we sell, at any time during his life, for the cost of collection. If you click the name of a goat, you will be directed to pages containing their pedigrees and more family photos.

    Penny is one of our sweetest and silliest Oberhasli girls and Maui, as everyone probably knows by now, is our favorite buck. Penny has a really nice topline and brisket, but could use a tiny bit of work on her rump angle and some more depth. Maui’s legs are a tiny bit posty, but his rump is close to ideal, so we’re excited to see how their kids look!

    Penny came to us from FirstFruits Farm and has some very nice old-school purebred genetics in her recent pedigree (including Rachelsie Sento del Sol 🤩). Maui’s maternal bloodline is a little less well-known from a local breeder, but one of his grand-dams is GCH Ober-Boerd T Veja.

    Luna is SO sweet and is one of our favorites! She’s only a year old and will hopefully even out, but right now, her shoulders are a little too high in the withers and her rump is overly rounded. She has a really nice brisket and depth, though! Maui is level in both shoulders and rump, so we chose him as her mate.

    Luna came to us from FirstFruits Farm and has some very nice old-school purebred genetics in her recent pedigree (including Rachelsie Sento del Sol 🤩). Maui’s maternal bloodline is a little less well-known from a local breeder, but one of his grand-dams is GCH Ober-Boerd T Veja.

    If Luna has any sons with her black coloring, they will not be registrable, but her daughters and granddaughters will be.

    Diana looks like a little deer – we love her head and also her depth! She is the daughter of GCH Ober-Boerd Divergent and the granddaughter of two famous Obers, GCH Vanjust 3GS Dallaz 89 VEVE and GCH Ober-Boerd Love’s First Kiss. We are breeding her to Heartbreaker, who is the grandson of one of the most decorated Oberhasli in ADGA history, SGCH Vanjust TA Bramble 05-05 EEEE 92.

    We have a feeling that she didn’t take with Heartbreaker, so we used Maui as a cleanup buck. We will pull DNA to confirm parentage.

    Gazelle has gorgeous conformation, and we are so excited to have her! She is the daughter of a 2x National Champion, CH Autumn-Acres Cover Girl. We bred her to Maui, our favorite buck.

    Full disclosure – Gazelle has a weird itchy, flaky skin condition. She had it when we bought her as a yearling and the seller sort of downplayed it, and we trusted her. It’s definitely not mites and the vet doesn’t think it’s zinc malabsorption, but nobody knows what it is. The vet suspects a hormonal or immune issue. Her littermate brother does not have this affliction and is actively being used by a famous breeder, Haycreek Farm. 

    We will retain at least one daughter to see whether this is hereditary. Others may be offered without papers on a pet contract and heavily discounted. If they grow up healthy, please let us know and we will help you register them for free, if interested. All sons for the foreseeable future will be wethered.

    Riesling is stunning and we love how outgoing she is! We think she’s the most correct of our older Ober girls. She did very well in shows in 2022, and her grand-dams are CH Autumn-Acres KVB Sweet Ruby and SGCH Haycreeks Brownie Tribute. Maui’s maternal bloodline is a little less well-known from a local breeder, but one of his grand-dams is GCH Ober-Boerd T Veja. Their kids are sure to be amazing!

    Sales Policies

    By purchasing or placing a deposit, you agree to the following policies and disclaimers. 

    First and foremost, ALL SALES FINAL - no refunds or returns of any kind will be accepted. We stand by our offerings and want buyers to be happy, but as soon as animals or products leave our hands, whatever happens to them is out of our control. There are too many risks involved with accepting returns that might have been mistreated, infected, or tampered with once off our property.


    Priority is given to Performance herds. In addition, for each intact 2024 kid, we are offering to pay the original buyer $50 for the first awarded milk star, linear appraisal, and/or sanctioned show award that the goat receives in the original buyer’s care, for a possible total of $150 per Oberhasli or $100 per Mini Nubian (Mini Nubians unfortunately aren’t eligible for Linear Appraisal).


    We reserve the right to sell animals to what we feel are the best homes based on management and care. Deposits will be refunded if we choose to cancel a sale.


    We reserve the right to collect up to 30 straws from any intact buckling that we sell, at any time during his life, for the cost of collection.


    On or before the day of pick up, we request cash, Venmo, or Zelle for the balance due. Balances due must be paid in full before the animal leaves the farm. No personal checks will be accepted. If absolutely necessary, we will accept certified or cashier's checks.

    We offer two lists: a paid reservation list which gives buyers first choice (after us), and then a free interest waitlist that we send notices to as animals become available before we share them with the public.


    Being added to our paid reservation list or free waitlist gives you options AFTER we have retained any kids. We reserve the right to retain any kid bred by our farm at any time, at our discretion.


    Please contact us if you would like to be added to one of our lists.


    If you would like to reserve an animal, we require a non-refundable $100 deposit. Must be 18 years or older to place a deposit. When making a deposit, please tell us what you are hoping for - gender, a specific breeding, etc.


    Deposits are non-refundable for any reason UNLESS we are unable to meet the specifications listed when a deposit is made. If we are unable to meet the specs, at your request, we can either refund your deposit, apply it to a different animal, or hold it for the next year. If an animal meeting your specs is available and you decide that you do not want that one for any reason, your deposit is forfeited.


    PayPal Friends & Family, Venmo, and Zelle are our preferred method of payment for deposits, but we also accept cash, as well as certified or cashier's checks. Sorry, no personal checks.


    We reserve the right to sell animals to what we feel are the best homes based on management and care. Deposits will be refunded if we choose to cancel a sale.

    Buyer is responsible for pick-up/transportation. If any vet exams or certificates are required to cross state lines, buyer will pay for those before they take place.


    If goat kids are not picked up before 10 weeks of age, a $3/day boarding fee will apply. If an animal is not picked up by the arranged date, buyer will forfeit their deposit and the animal will be the sole property of JK Herd It All to retain or sell, unless other arrangements are made. View recommended transport options here.


    On or before the day of pick up, we request cash, Venmo, or Zelle for the balance due. Balances due must be paid in full before the animal leaves the farm. No personal checks will be accepted. If absolutely necessary, we will accept certified or cashier's checks.


    Please remember that as soon as an animal or product leave our hands, whatever happens to them is out of our control and we cannot be held liable for them. There are too many risks involved with accepting returns that might have been mistreated, infected, or tampered with once off our property.

    All of our goats have originated from clean-tested herds and have themselves tested CAE-free, but because we brought in a few new herd members recently, all kids will be bottle fed and kept on a separate pasture for the next few years. This helps to prevent the spread of undiagnosed disease.


    If you would prefer a dam-raised kid, we'd be happy to do that upon request if the kid is paid for in full at or before birth.


    If kept on a bottle, most kids are ready to head to their new home by 4-5 weeks. If the buyer would like us to dam-raise, kids will be available at about 10 weeks of age.


    All kids will be disbudded unless buyer pays full price at time of deposit - horned dairy goats are unfortunately very difficult to find homes for.


    Wethers and Pet Only does will be sold without registry papers.

    We are dedicated to maintaining our herds and land as naturally as possible, but we have come to terms with the fact that Wisconsin is not a natural environment for goats, and they sometimes need help thriving here.


    After struggling with both Clostridium and Pneumonia in the same year, we are strongly leaning towards vaccinating our herds for both. We haven't done it yet, but will if 2024 isn't better than 2023 was.


    We realize that this is a very personal choice, so we would vaccinate our own herd and keeper kids, NOT ones we have listed for sale. Kids would inherit some immunity from their dams and will be able to be vaccinated upon arrival at your farm. If you would like us to vaccinate a kid, we would be more than happy to do it for you, but only upon request.

    Buyer has the option at the time of pick up to refuse the animal if they feel that the animal is not healthy. We cannot warrant the health status of an animal after it leaves our property. All sales are final. Taking an animal off our property implies that you have read and agreed to the sales agreement and are satisfied with the condition of the animal.


    Stress can be rough on them and they can go downhill quickly. Something like shipping fever can infect and kill a kid within a few hours. Therefore, unfortunately, we can offer no warranties or guarantees on the health & viability of an animal. However, we do make one exception: if an animal sold for breeding stock (not wethered and not pet only) is found by a licensed veterinarian to have a genetic condition preventing use in breeding, we will refund or replace that animal. Cosmetic conditions that might negatively affect the quality of the animals or their offspring do not apply; only conditions that prevent successful mating, such as hermaphroditism or freemartinism.


    Our goat herd is tested annually for CAE, CL, and Johne's. If any other tests are requested, we are happy to administer them if the purchaser pays.


    We treat our goats holistically with products from Molly's Herbals, Fir Meadows, and Land of Havillah whenever possible. If something dangerous pops up and herbal treatments are not working, we will call our vet and use Western medicine as needed.

    All of our animals are from the very best lines we could find, with many milk award and exhibition winners in their gene pool. This does NOT guarantee that our animals or any of their offspring will be show quality or win awards, or have amazing milk production or udders. That's just how the lottery of genetics works. In order to be fully transparent, we have listed flaws that we've noticed and are working towards correcting in each of our animals.
