As Lifetime Members of the Livestock Conservancy, we wanted to raise one of the heritage goat breeds that they’re working to protect. We chose Oberhasli! Descended from Swiss goats, Oberhasli Dairy Goats are generally calm and quiet; unlike our bouncy, talkative Mini Nubians. They produce sweet, clean-tasting milk, and they are one of peoples’ favorite breeds for trail packing! This breed is thankfully now listed as Recovering by the Livestock Conservancy.
We scoured ADGA awards and Linear Appraisal records to find the very best Oberhasli herds around, and then researched those breeders to see which share our goals and values. We’ve still got a couple more on our wishlist (and always will haha), but we are SO excited to build our own line with these amazing genetics!
Our top goals, more or less in order, are:
Every year, we have a limited number of Oberhasli dairy goats available. Most can be registered American through ADGA. If any black bucks are born, they are unable to be registered because they’re an unapproved color (but black does can be registered). We’ve been trying for a few years to get our hands on some purebred Oberhasli, but haven’t had much luck finding any!
