and Best Udder of Breed Lamancha CH POH
Welcome to Patch of
Heaven Dairy Goats of Elk River Minnesota and ROCAWOOD Dairy goats of
Nowthen Minnesota. Cassie and Gretchen started raising dairy goats
together in 2004 in Forest Lake, Minnesota.
The Saanens are raised under the ROCAWOOD herd name while the Lamanchas
are raised under the Patch of Heaven (POH) herd name. In March of 2014,
Cassie got married and
moved to her husbands farm in Nowthen, MN taking the Saanen herd
with her. While in June of 2014
the Lamancha herd and Gretchen moved to Elk River,
increasing from 5 acres to 15 acres of beautiful
shady rolling hills of pasture for the goats to roam.
Herd health and management is our top
priority. Mature does are fed a grass/alfalfa mix in addition to 16%
sweet feed, oats, calf manna, and free choice minerals. Does are
dewormed as needed, and are vaccinated yearly for CD&T.
Supplemental copper and Bose are given as a source of selenium. All
does are monitored very closely during kidding season, all births
are attended and kids removed. Kids are raised on a strict CAE
prevention, getting pulled at birth and fed heat treated colostrum
and pasteurized milk. From one week of age kids are raised on a lamb
starter pellet with free choice grass/alfalfa hay, and fresh water
available at all times.
