For Sale: Purebred Nubian Doe in MILK!

Aquila is a second freshener 5-6 months into her lactation which has been level and consistent.  She is an easy reliable milker well trained to the milk stand, a doe who knows her job – no drama.  Her udder is well attached with orifice’s that drain quickly on our machine but would be just as easy to milk by hand.  We have not tested her milk for butterfat content but when she is milked separately she fills a half gallon jar easily and the next day we get a notable amount of sweet cream on top of the milk.  It’s delicious!   She is long bodied, elegant in form and movement with great dairy character.  She has a nice roman nose and good breed character but is quiet for a Nubian (a plus!)  Though she is not the most affectionate doe she is easy to work with and never dramatic or bossy.  She tested CAE Negative in 2014.

Though our objective is milk and cheese, we believe in providing the safest, healthiest, most humane environment possible for our goats. It is true that the best cheese comes from healthy, stress-free animals and clean properly handled milk.

Two roads.

image

TWO roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference.

Robert Frost. Mountain Interval. 1920.
