Thank you for your interest in Springfield Oaks Saanens/Sables. 2022 marks my 43rd year with dairy goats, and I am proud of what Iíve produced. I feel that my animals get better every year. They have also done well for their owners in other herds, being good milkers and show-quality producers. Iím pleased to have them in homes where they are appreciated. The combination of DHIR milk records and annual linear appraisal scores demonstrate that the productivity of a Springfield Oaks animal goes along with beautiful general appearance.
With several Sables being born in the last few years, Jonathan has decided he would like to work with Sables. *B Sherry's Quest Kit joined the herd this year, bringing some strong proven Sable genetics. Most of his offspring will be Experimental as we increase the percentage of color genetics. The quality will be outstanding, and all offspring will carry at least one color gene. We have also recently added R Goats Valente, a Sable buckling that goes back to several outstanding Springfield-Oaks animals on the dam's side of his pedigree.
Although we maintain a small herd, usually freshening only 12-15 does each year, maintaining quality and consistency is paramount. Springfield-Oaks pedigrees feature multiple generations of star milkers as well as multiple generations of both does and bucks scoring Excellent. Your $100.00 deposit will reserve a kid. The deposit will be refunded if your kid is not born, or is not of the quality expected, and you do not wish to select a substitute. To maintain your deposit as refundable, payment in full is due within 10 days of the kidís birth, and kids must be shipped or picked up at the farm at 3 weeks of age unless other arrangements have been made. The prices listed here are for pre-ordered kids. We reserve the right to retain any kid and prices may change after kids are born. Shipping is out of Tucson on American, Alaska or Delta. Shipping after May 1st is not recommended due to the heat in Tucson.
Although Springfield-Oaks began in an oak-hickory woodlot, Springfield Township, Winneshiek County, Iowa, we are now located in SE Arizona. At an elevation of 4300', we have all four seasons with annual temperatures ranging from highs in the upper 90's to lows in the teens. The dry climate provides an ideal environment for raising dairy goats, and they thrive. The Sulphur Springs valley is surrounded by mountains, including the Chiricahuas that rise to an elevation over 10,000'.
