Akin Hills Dairy Goats began in 1999 with three grade does. We started just to have milk but after taking two of the girls to the county fair that September we decided we wanted to show. We have since aquired many purebreds. Our L line, all Americans, descend from Missie, one of our original does. We strive to continue to improve our animals with our breeding program. We are raising Purebred and American Nubians and French Alpines. Our Nubians come mostly from Lakeshore-Farms, Goldthwaite, Kastdemurs, and Sand-Bur-Kids lines. Our Alpines are from Kickapoo-Valley and Munchin' Hill. We are working to produce an animal that will milk well, show well, and hold up for years and years. We have a small dairy where we sell the milk so production is important to us.
We test annually for CAE . Our kids are raised as naturally as possible. They recieve free-choice dairy quality alfalfa, minerals and a top-qualiy grain as well as lot's of milk for good growth. They are dewormed based on fecals, and on coccidiosis prevention. We attend all births and pull the kids to be raised on CAE prevention and penned seperately from the adults.
