Welcome! Let us introduce you to our Nigerian dairy goats. We are better know for our Nubian, after 30+ years with them, but now you will only find Nubians on our "Reference" page of this website. We will try to answer your questions on our management, breeding philosophy and give purchase information within this site.
Saada Dairy Goats, LLC was established over 30 years ago, first with Nubians and then, nine years ago the Niggies arrived. We strive to breed for a total dairy goat - animals exhibiting correct physical structure, with tremendous style, grace, and breed character; as well as above-average milk yield with a level lactation curve, and high percentages of fat and protein. We also emphasize a calm temperament and healthy longevity. We haven't produced any perfect goats, but we'll continue to try and breed for them. Over the years we have bred many GCH and SGCH does,and we believe there are more champions in the wings.
We drastically downsized the Nubian herd in 2017 and have expanded the Nigerians somewhat, as we are make some shifts and choices in ours lives. We were so grateful to the KECMR and Karen Blackstone herds for providing a wonderful homes for the does and bucks we parted with. We were thrilled to add two very nice Nigerians: a GCH Twin Creek doe, purchsed from the Lil Miss B Haven herd; and a promising buckling of champion, top 10 Castle Rock parentage from the Harley Hillside Nigerians.
We were not able to be scheduled for LA in 2017. And, due to the stress moving does to new homes, didn't show much, only the Nigerians at Montana State Fair. However, we were appraised in June of 2018, and we are (mostly) pleased with the results. Now we hope to get to a few shows yet this year.
Herd health is very important to us. We feed the highest quality alfalfa and mixed grass hays available. rolled oats and sunflower seeds, loose minerals for goats, kelp, yeast and baking soda. Kids are raised on a CAEV prevention program. Births are attended and kids are raised separately from adults, prior to being picked up or shipped. We have been CAE free for many years. We have never had other chronic or contagious health problems or diseases.
Phone calls, e-mails or correspondence are always welcomed from those wishing more information, extended pedigrees, LA, or milk records on specific animals.
