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 are home to SG does, finished champions (GCH, SGCH, etc), does on the top ten list, ELITE does, and top placings at ADGA National shows. We strive to breed for long lasting, highly productive dairy goats that are worth the effort of milking and feeding, along with excelling in the show ring. You will note when clicking through the pages for our goats, that we offer the facts (DHI records, LA scores, show wins, etc) and not the fluff/descriptions, so that you can make your own conclusions about the goats here. We are happy to answer any questions regarding goats available through email, private facebook message, or text message/phone call.
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, Mar 2019) 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.
