Homesteading at Menagenary Farm! There will be a variety of topics as befitting a homestead where self-sufficiency is strived for and rural living enjoyed. You'll find posts about my critters (goats, horses, chickens, cats, dogs, etc), wildlife, gardening, cooking, frugal living, etc. Goals are crucial so there's time to ponder for a better chance for success! Come have a seat on the porch with a refreshing drink and let's share!

Everyone should be bred and ALL by Kernals. I was really pleased with his offspring last year and expect to be more so this year! He's a very nice buck and has a very sweet and friendly disposition. Unfortunately, with life as it was last Fall, I mistakenly waited till November to start breeding and should have started in October. That being, the does are all due starting in April. The 2013 kids will be Nigoras (for fleece), Mini Alpines, Mini LaManchas and Nigeran Dwarfs.
I HIGHLY recommend the Irish Whisper Farm goats. My ND's and LaManchas are all from there or their parents are. The ND's are the Sugar Creek breedings and both the Sugar Creek and Irish Whisper are bred for major milk production and all the correct attributes you could wish for. Both breeders are very knowledgeable as to genetics and breeding. Both LaMancha does are from Irish Whisper Farm and again, breed to milk and for all the correct attributes one could wish for. Both farms are in Michigan.
