About Guernsey Goats
The Guernsey Dairy Goats became a new venture for us in June of 2009. This breed is a decendent of the Golden Guernsey, which is found in the UK.
It is not possible to import Golden Guernseys into the USA due to strict animal health regulations. For many years, some American breeders have developed a Golden Guernsey-type breed of goat. There is only a very small number of pure-bred Golden Guernseys in the USA from embryos imported in an exercise.
In 2007, this breed was presented to the ADGA for inclusion to the Registrary Herdbook. The breed was again presented, in 2011, to ADGA for inclusion. A survey was conducted by ADGA with positive results. More to come ...
To my knowledge, we are the only breeder of Guernesey Goat's in the state of Missouri. We purchased our first set of goats in 2009 from the state of Washington. We purchased another group in 2010 from the same breeders. In 2012, we had the opportunity to include another set of Guernsey's into our herd. All of these goats can be viewed on the Guernsey Doe List page.
Please visit out 'Breeding & Events' page located under 'About Us' to view our kidding schedule.
