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. Our breeding is focused on making excellent dairy and show animals. Our herd has been on official DHI 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. We have sold cheese in the past and may do so again in the future. Milk is available on the farm by appointment as well as at the Asian Food Market in Twin Falls.
Our goats are 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. Any purchased goats can be tested at the buyers expense before leaving the property. We care greatly about our herd health and the health of the goats we sell. All milking does are annually tested for TB and Brucellosis.
