LaMancha Dairy Goats:



Our small LaMancha herd is registered with ADGA


A breed developed in the United States of America, LaMancha Dairy Goats are known for their
wonderful temperaments and tiny ears. They are born with unique, small ears that
easily distinguish them from the other dairy breeds. They are hardy, sturdy and dependable
goats making them perfect for the homestead. The distinctive breed feature is the ears,
There are two types of LaMancha ears, the gopher ear and the elf ear. In females, there is no advantage
of one type over the other. Gopher ears have a maximum length of one inch, with little or no cartilage.
The end of the ear must be turned up or down. Gopher ear are the only type of ear which will make a buck
eligible for registration. The elf ear has a maximum length of two inches. The end of the ear must be
turned up or down and cartilage shaping the small ear is allowed.

Although most are naturally horned, we and most other dairy breeders disbud them at a young age
(3-7 days old) for safety to the goat, the herd, caregivers, and visitors. The American Dairy Goat
Association and American Goat Society both require that dairy goats be hornless to participate in
the show ring. A horned domestic goat can easily catch it's head in a fence, accidentally gouge an
eye or cause other injury to herd mates and caregivers.

LaManchas can produce milk that is high in both butterfat and protein. Another advantage to the
LaMancha breed is that many does can often be milked for two years without being freshened.
LaManchas are generally easy keepers and adaptable. They function well in a homestead or commercial
dairy setting. Lamancha's produce, on average, 2,300 lbs of milk, (average 8.5 lbs per day) over
a typical 270 day lactation.

Our breeding program is focused primarily on milking for the family homestead. We are breeding for
overall hardiness, a sturdy, correct animal capable of supporting optimal production over a long
life. Important specific traits are udder size and attachments, teat size and placement, milk
production, milking temperament, as well as dairy character.

Herd health is extremely important to us. Our stock has come from three herd(s) that are free of and
test regularly for CAE and have never had an incidence of CL. We do draw blood for annual testing
and are happy to draw blood and run tests for any buyer as a contingency of, or prior to, at the
expense of the buyer. All of the stock at Parham Farms has consistently tested negative for CAE. We
have never had an abscess of any type and do not vaccinate for CL. We conduct our testing through
Biotracking and/or WADDL.

If you are buying a dairy goat for milk, ANY BREED, be sure to get one from someone who milks,
and look for milking stars/awards (*M *D *P *S *B +S +B ) in the pedigree. Show wins, while nice,
aren't indicators of good milk production. Not all dairy goats are the best milkers and it costs
just as much to feed a poor milker as it does to feed an excellent one. No one can tell you if a maiden
doe will be a good milker for certain, but you certainly increase the odds in your favor dramatically if
her dam and the sire's dam are both good producers.

that information to make breeding decisions about her progeny. Contact us privately.

In 2017 at 7 years, 3 months of age, only two weeks fresh, Seraphina received her permanent
Linear Appraisal Score of 90 VEVE. Seraphina is a little lean, her general appearance would
benefit from a little fleshing out but that doesn't keep her from putting milk in the pail.
Seraphina is an amazingly resilient doe, she's come back from two life threatening conditions.
Seraphina does not like to be dried off. She loves to come to work each day at the milkstand and has
already milked through one lactation where she miscarried a few days after I dried her off. We hadn't
plans to milk her after the miscarriage. I wanted to give her body time to heal, but we quickly picked
up on the fact that she was depressed not to be leading the string of milkers into the milkroom. After
a quick conversation with our vet, we decided to put Seraphina back to work leading the milking string.
She he immediately came back into milk and the joy returned to her eyes. Seraphina has a beautifully
balanced, capacious udder and perfectly placed and sized teats for hand milking.
Seraphina received ADGA's Superior Genetics Award and designation in 2016.
Seraphina's Dairy Herd Improvement data: 2015 -- 288 days in milk, 2,690 lbs milk, 124 lbs butterfat, 91 lbs protein
2016 -- 217 days in milk, 2,787 lbs milk, 136 lbs butterfat, 83 lbs protein

This three year old, third freshening doe is absolutely gorgeous! She
was heavy bred at the time of linear appraisal, so we did not transport her
to be appraised in 2017. She freshened with an uneven udder this year due
to scar tissue from mastitis at the end of her last lactation
but is producing like gang busters and freshened clear of any
mastitis in 2017. Aria is a brat, but she is everything we wanted
structurally from the cross between her dam and sire.

2015-- 266 days in milk, 1,670 lbs milk, 67 lbs butterfat, 59 lbs protein

Pirouette was a first freshener in 2016 when she was appraised. She displays a well balanced,
high, deep mammary, with slightly narrow teat diameter, but easy to hand milk. She has gained
width in her thrid year and carries her udder high and tigh. We expect her linear appraisal
score would have improved several points if she had been able to be appraised in 2017.

This yearling doe was accidently impregnated by her twin
brother at only 4 months of age. Though we sought veterinary
assistance and administered a hormone to prevent implantation
of the egg, we were shocked to find her developing an udder
a few months later. Patty delivered a songle large doe kid and
we have been extremely impressed with her udder. Patty needs to
grow out, but her frame looks promising.

We are grateful to our friends at Agape Oaks for letting this excellent buck come to live at Parham Farms.
Mousse is a sweetheart. I was initially intimidated by the notion of keeping a standard breed herdsire,
simply because they can be so large, but despite being the largest goat here, Mousse is the calmest and he came to Parham Farms his barn name was changed to "Mousse" in honor of his natural hairdo and flirty nature.
