2019 ADGA National Show Reserve Premier Breeder!
Welcome to Springwater dairy goats! We are located near Buhl, Idaho, where we raise Nigerian dwarf 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 it was offered, starting in 2013. We are home to SG does, finished champions (GCH, SGCH, etc), does on the Top Ten Breed Leaders List, ELITE does, and have had top placings at ADGA National shows. You will note when clicking through the pages for our goats, that we show the hard data (DHI records, LA scores, show wins, etc) with no additional descriptions, as we feel the data is a better way to prove what we love about them. We are happy to answer any questions about our goats and herd practices through email, private Facebook message, or text message/phone call.
Our entire herd is tested annually for CAE (most recent whole-herd negative test, Feb 2020) and we have never had a CL abscess. We have done spot testing for Johnes and CL, and test all incoming goats for all three.
