|Green Gate Dairy
|Our motto has always been Milk in
the pail and ribbons on the wall.
Now we can sell that milk in the pail.
It is lovely sweet milk, high in butterfat
from Nigerian Goats.
Our goats are fed Alfalfa as their
main food source with some grass
hay, leaves and green pasture to
graze, run and play on during the day.
We try to keep our Girls well fed ,
happy and free of stress. Lots of
clean water and natural minerals to
keep them healthy and happy.
|Our Doe's have their kids on them until
they are sold at 8 weeks.
The kids that we retain stay with Mom.
When they are old enough to be
with out mom for the night, we put them
in a pen at night, then we milk the
Mom's in morning,after milking the kids
get to spend the day with Mom, and
learn all the good thing Mom can teach
We handle the kids all the time so they
are friendly but not pushy like bottle
babies can be.
We also DHIA test once a month and
work on getting the Does their milking
stars, and AR awards.
|Future milking Star
|We milk with an Ultimate EZ
and it works great.
The new Does to the stand do
not have any problem getting
use to the milker.
