Last year saw the addition of a few Guernsey goats. I have been admiring this breed for the last couple years and finally made the decision to add a few to the herd. I am looking forward to building my Guernsey herd and to helping to grow the breed in the United States. The Guernsey's have been accepted as a breed by the American Dairy Goat Association but it will likely be another year or so before ADGA starts registering them. In the meantime the goats will be registered with the British Goat Society.
Walela Hawk March 2016 BG2 Buck
Hawk is the first Guernsey buck to reside at Prairie Trail Livestock. He is a nicely put together buck and his dam had a well attached mammary and was also a good producer. Hawk's sire was a large buck with a beautiful head, level topline and good feet and legs.
Treasured Danushka 2013 HB1 Doe
Danushka is a 3 year old HB1 doe. She has an excellent personality and has been a real joy to own. Her udder has a decent shape to it, but she could use stronger rear and fore attachments. She has good sized teats that are well placed and is very easy to milk. She peaked at 8.5 lbs per day this year and had a high butterfat test of 5.3%. Danushka will be bred to Hawk for Spring 2018 kids. Danushka is pictured above.
Walela Annabelle May 2016 HB2 Doe
Annabelle is a very pretty young doe. She is a medium cream color and is already starting her long coat. Her dam was a good sized yearling milker and had a well attached mammary. Annabelle has good feet and legs and should be an excellent addition to the herd. Annabelle will be bred to Hawk for Spring 2018 kids.
