LaMancha Dairy Goats
In the warm sunshine of the central San Joaquin Valley, you will find the Leyland herd of LaMancha dairy goats, nestled amongst the bountiful vineyards and orchards of the world-famous agricultural paradise known as Fresno County, California.
LaManchas first came to Leyland Farms in the summer of 2014 and quickly became a permanent mainstay. In fact, in the Spring of 2021, after 16 years in the Boer goat industry, I dispersed the entire herd of Boer goats. Going forward, I have decided to concentrate on improving my LaManchas along with a few high quality commercial Dorper sheep.
With the aid of artificial insemination, I have been able to make great strides in improving my goats to a higher level in just a few short years. I plan to continue to use this tool to help me reach some goals that I have set for the herd.
It is my intention to become an ADGA Plus member this fall and place the herd on milk test for 2022. I plan to once again participate in Linear Appraisal after a long gap of 5 years. I would also like to attend some shows in 2022 and personally exhibit my own home-grown Leyland LaMancha for the first time.
I am excited to announce that plans are being drawn up for a complete barn remodel which will include a new climate-controlled milking parlor and a more comfortable area for our annual late summer artificial insemination event.
