Giving up the dairy dream
One of the reasons we chose to move to Idaho was the laws concerning the sales of raw milk are much more reasonable than Oregon and I had dreams of running a dairy here. Alas, the deterioration that started following an accident 27+ years ago has reached the point where I can no longer keep up with a large herd. So I even though I made drastic cuts last year, I am making more this year. We will have some first fresheners kidding at the end of June into July and decisions on them will come after they have kidded. My goal is to get the herd down to 6-8 adult does, and just a couple of kids. But that is easier said that done as I love all of them.
Violet and her half sister Gal are retained along with Violets daughters Viennetta and her 2021 doe kid. Moana and Puzzle are also retained. That makes 5 adults and 1 doe kid retained. Everyone else is up for consideration so if there is a doe you are interested in let me know.
I have updated individual pictures with those that are for sale. A couple of additional yearlings may become available after they have kidded in late June or July.
