Once upon a time, we left the big city for the country and got goats. In 2012, we transitioned to a registered herd. Our goats are carefully selected based on genetics, show history, conformation, and milk production. Our goal is betterment of the breed. We value hardy, easy to care for goats. Due to family commitments and disease prevention measures, we do not show.
Why the name Dixie Blue? Dixie is the name of our first dog. Blue is a favorite color and represents truth and loyalty.
How We Raise Our Goats
As naturally as possible, but use chemical treatments when needed. Our goats freely graze and rotate on 15 acre pasture. Feed is provided when needed and consists of whole oats, whole barley, BOSS (black oil sunflower seeds), and alfalfa. We deworm based on fecal tests. Our closed herd is disease-free.
We have a deep respect for mothers caring for their young, so we dam raise kids unless bottle-feeding is required. Our little humans spend lots of time loving on babies each day. We consistently receive feedback that our kids are social and lovable.
