Lals Haven Goat Stud have a new goal for 2024. We are aiming to breed all our own kids here on the farm. We have purchased two new bucks who should produce top quality stock. With the aim of improving our does and create a mixture of colour within our herd.
This will not be a short term process it will take quite a few years. We started just over 18 months ago with does ranging from 12-45% pygmy and today we now own does up to 84.375% pygmy breeding. We used to transport the does off our property to be put in kid but now we can use our own bucks and they are 87.5% pygmy.
All our stock will be DNA verified. DNA testing can be used to determine the ancestry of each kid. This testing is very beneficial for breeders and owners who would like further information about the heritage of their mixed-breed pets.
You will have certainty of knowing each kid is actually bred by that sire and dam. We have always thought this was a important factor when breeding animals. It was how we bred our performance horses and it is the same with our pygmy goats. As a responsible breeder we believe in utilising the testing available to ensure that we are breeding what we say.
Below are our stunning registered goats within the National Pygmy Goat Association of Australia.
Trinity Paul Hogan – 87.5% pygmy buck
Trinity Sweet Pea – 81.25% doe & her daughter Lals Haven Sweet Treat 84.375% pygmy doeling.
Lals Haven Goat Stud are registered breeders. The Australian Goat Socities have a wealth of knowledge and we are always learning something new from those who have been breeding for decades. As they say ” Never stop dreaming, never stop believing, never give up, never stop trying, and never stop learning.”
