RETIREMENT SALE - Everything goes

 

Welcome to Mountain Vista Farm's home page.  We are glad to have you visit us, and hope what is presented here will provide you with useful information about our dairy goats.  We are located close to the East Entrance of Yellowstone National Park and Heart Mtn. near Cody, WY in the Northern Rockies.

Our place is a small diversified farm where we raise excellent show, breeding and using stock of Purebred Nubian Dairy Goats.  We have been breeding and raising these Roman-nosed beauties here for 21 years.  Our breeding philosophy  in theory has been  pretty simple - breed the best to the best , select some of the best offspring for retention in our breeding herd, occasionally acquire a high quality out-crossed Buck that hopefully would cross well with our does, and practice linebreeding to our very best individuals to hopefully  help solidify desirable genetic characteristics.  The  genetic improvement benefits of such  practices have been well documented since at least the days of Robert Bakewell (1725-1795).  Our breeding philosophy has of course been applied within the limits of our financial resources, stock availability, and our skill  at  identifying desirable Nubian characteristics in individual animals.  We were very fortunate in being able to start our herd with  some quality Saada bred animals adding the genetics of their offspring and an occasional out-cross over the years.  We were certainly gratified, honored, humbled and thrilled when our efforts were rewarded with CH LH Mtn Vista Eclipse being named the  Grand Champion Nubian at the 2007 National show in Gillette.  We were also quite pleased when our 4 yr old milker took 7th place in her class and a 2 yr old milker placed 15th in her class.  This year (2012) we were delighted to see an animal that we bred and raised (LH Mountain Vista Koruna) place 1st in her class at the National show in Fort Collins (owned and shown by Saada Dairy Goats).

Unfortunately we are not able to attend many shows due to our rather remote location and other activities.  However, we are generally pleased with how our animals compete when we do show.  We participate in ADGA's Linear Appraisal Program which has been a big help to us.  We also participate in milking competitions when we can.

The Bighorn basin area where we live produces some of the best alfalfa in the country which is a staple for our goats, along with quality grain, and a mineral mix recommended by the University of Wyoming Extension Service. As with many quality dairy goat farms, standard procedures for us include attended births and hand reared kids on pasteurized colostrum and milk, and regular monitoring and testing for diseases such as CAE to insure good herd health.  So far we have always maintained a CAE free herd.

A $75.00 deposit is required to reserve kids and the entire sale price must be received before shipping or pickup.  We offer discounts for 4-H and FFA students.

We also make 100% natural herbal handcrafted goat milk soap in lovely molds.  This herbal milk soap is very smooth and soothing to the skin.  Each bar contains approximately 40% goat's milk.  For more information about our goats or our goat milk soap click the appropriate button at the bottom of the page.  Thanks for visiting our webpage.
