The farm has been breeding registered Goats since the early 1970’s, and has kept goats for generations before. Their herd of pedigree dairy goats is known world-wide for its high lactation and longevity and has assisted breeding programmes worldwide. It has also been prominent in helping Ethiopian farms re-establish themselves as part of the Farm Africa Project.
The goats are on a mixed livestock farm and bred primarily for milk production with the average herd yield being 1600 litres per annum. The herd belongs to the British Goat Society Monitored Herd Schemes for CAE. Five home-bred male goats have gained their British Goat Society ‘Sire of Merit’ status and four female goats have become Dams of Excellence and three have become Breed Champions.
