Welcome to Springwater dairy goats! We are located near Buhl, Idaho, where we raise Nigerian dwarf and alpine dairy goats for milk and show. All goats that carry either the Springwater or FMG herd prefix are bred by us. We have been raising dairy goats since 2009. Our herd has been on official DHI milk testing since 2012 and we have participated in the Linear Appraisal program every year starting in 2013.
We have sold milk for human consumption since 2011, under the small herd exemption in Idaho. Milk is available at the Asian Food Market in Twin Falls as well as on the farm by appointment.
Our entire herd is tested annually for CAE (most recent whole-herd negative test, Feb 2018) and we have never had a CL abscess. We have done spot testing for Johnes with negative results. All milking does are annually tested for TB and Brucellosis.
