Our farm is enrolled in performance programs through ADGA with the goal to learn and improve our herd's conformation and milk production. Our herd will have a linear appraisal completed on all eligible herd members starting in September 2019 and annually thereafter. Our does also began DHIR milk testing in May 2019. This program tracks how much milk each one produces through monthly weights. A milk sample is then sent to a lab where the quality and content of the milk is tested. This program allows does to earn recognition for her performance in the milk pail.
A buck is also able to earn recognition based on his dam and his daughters performance.
