Alpine Dairy Goats in Missouri at Mini Jewells Goat Farm

Alpine Goat Pictures in Field


Please visit our new website at www.MiniMilkCows.com
We no longer raise Alpine goats.  We now have Nubian goats.
 

When we started looking at goat breeds, Alpine Goats stood out as one of the goat breeds that would meet our needs.  We wanted goats that would make terrific show goats while at the same time providing our family with high quality, delicious tasting milk. Color was also an issue. My daughter wanted "pretty goats" of all colors. Again, Alpines met the requirements. Alpine dairy goats are an alert, graceful breed with upright ears.  Alpines can be any color, are of medium to large size, and have excellent milk production. Once we settled on Alpine goats, we had to find a breeder. We chose Joan Wilcox of Columbia, Missouri. Joan is an experienced goat breeder, producing eight Permanent Grand Champions from her herd. 

Does or bucks become Permanent Champions (identified by a CH in front of the goats name) when they have won "Grand Champion" in at least three separate ADGA sanctioned shows. The goats become Permanent Grand Champions (GCH) if they have met ADGA milk requirements in addition to a Permanent Championship (CH).  Bucks earn their Grand Championship (GCH) when they are Permanent Champions (CH) and their progeny or parents have met ADGA milk production requirements. The designation of * or + refers to meeting ADGA milk requirements for star milkers.

ADGA Show Record



Maiden was our first doeling born on the farm!!  She broke her left hind leg at 1 month old and unfortunately the break broke the growth plate. She will remain as a "brood" goat but will no longer be shown. Maiden placed 2nd (due to the short leg) in both ADGA shows in which she was shown in 2009.  We were very pleased with the judges comments and can't wait to see what she produces in the future.

A Few Notes

Phantom won Grand Champion Alpine Buck in Ring Two at he Mo-Kan 2011 Goat show in Sedalia, Missouri. We are so excited about Phantom. He has beautiful straight lines, a nice uphill build, smooth shoulder assembly, and deep wide body. His sire won Best of Breed when was under one years of age. Not only is Phantom a gorgeous goat but he has a nice temperament.  Nearly all dams in his pedigree are star milkers. His dam was never tested.

A Few Notes

Dust Devil has his dam's long, deep body and level top line. His shoulder assembly is good and his angles are strong. His dam was a awesome milker that has never done a milk test.  Her twin sister earned her star early with 14 pounds of milk recorded.  His show lines are well established. We will be keeping Dust Devil to breed to our doelings from 2011

               ADGA Show Record

Because we have just purchased "Pink" this year, I do not have her show history. I only have the shows that I we have taken her to and they are listed below beginning with First Show.


First Show:  Boone Triple Crown ADGA Sanctioned 7/14/08
       Won Best of Breed.  21 Alpines Competing  Ring One

Second Show: Boone Triple Crown ADGA Sanctioned 7/14/08
       Won Best of Breed.  21 Alpines Competing Ring Two

                             Milk Production

I have did not keep exact records but Pink produces approximately 1.5 gallons per day.  She continued that average until we dried her off for breeding.

Our first show with Pink and my son's first time in the show ring.  He was a little nervous but did alright.
