          Our herd name is BMV which is short for Blue Moon Valley.
 We are expecting kids in February.  I will be selling doelings or bucklings.  All my goats came from tested Free of Cl, Cae herds this past year. OUR herd tested free of CL and CAE this Year.   All kids will be dam raised also.

Why did I choose La Manchas for my breed of milk goat.  Well, for more than one reason.  One they are the only American breed of milk goat. Two they have sweet quiet temperaments, three they have good sweet milk high in butterfat. Last but not least I just love their heart shaped faces with small ears.

I have planned on milk goats here at our place since we built our home. Since I make our own milk soap and we need land cleared it just made sense to get some milk goats. We have lots of natural forage for goats.  Many things we consider weeds or PIA plants goats just love to eat.  Our 4 + acreas are loaded with wild blackberry, green briars, thistle and poison ivy just to name a few.  We do not like them but goats think they are yummy.  Goats unlike cows browse above ground. They prefer higher up plants like vines and tree leaves, bark ect.  Cows are grazers and prefer pasture to over grown areas. Goats turn over grown areas into pasture while getting rid of troublesome plants. In the case of milk goats we get milk in return as well as more pasture.
