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.

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
the milk string 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

A five old , fourth freshening doe in 2019, she is still gorgeous!
Heavy bred at the time of linear appraisal, we did not transport her
to be appraised in 2017. She freshened with twins, and produced
milk for 20 months. Aria is a spoiled brat, but she is everything
we wanted structurally and production wise from the cross between
her dam and sire. Long lactations, easy keeper, she loves to come
to the milk stand, is difficult to dry-off and produces well even
with a once-a-day milking program.

Aria's Dairy Herd Improvement data:
2015-- 266 days in milk, 1,670 lbs milk, 67 lbs butterfat, 59 lbs protein

Trix's dam, Aria, has yet to give me a kid who wasn't wide,
angular, flat-rumped, and just gorgeous. What she has
given me is almost all boys though. Trix was her second
daughter and after seeing how her first daughter turned
out for a friend, I really wanted one of my own.

What's the difference between inbreeding and line-breeding?
SUCCESS! Aria had been bred to her sire as a yearling as no
other LaMancha buck was available and we simply wanted to
bring her into milk and evaluate her udder and her offspring.
The result was a stunning little doe named Jitterbug who now
belongs to a friend and fellow breeder. After several years of
my friend telling me what an excellent doe Jitterbug is,
and realizing that Mousse's advanced age will soon affect
the ability to work with his genetic lineage, I decided to
repeat the sire/daughter breeding and hope for another
stunning doeling. I lucked out again, and I am keeping
this one. Doubling down on Mousse's genetics was a risk,
but having a young doeling with is 75% of her sire's genetic
material when he is an excellent specimen with an excellent
udder, is a nice treat. Yes, I said that Mousse has an udder.
Mousse is a lactating buck. This often happens when a buck
comes from strong milk producing lines. We don't milk him out.
We do keep him comfortable by relieving the pressure from time
to time, and we discard the milk. Aria has never given me a kid
who wasn't stunningly correct, plus Aria can really put the
milk in the pail and contentedly milks over 2 years as well.
I love these genetics and am excited about this kid

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 easiest to handle of any buck I have owned. He's also a hoot! He
initially earned the barn name of "Moose" because he was such a huge kid, but
when he came to Parham Farms his barn name was changed to "Mousse" in honor of
his natural hairdo and flirty nature.
