BreezeecreekWelcome to Breezee Creek Farm, where we specialize in Miniature Nubian dairy goats. We are located in La Center, Washington, just a 1/2 an hour North of Portland, OR. Our herd is regularly tested CAE free, and is maintained in a closed herd  atmosphere. We treat our goats preventatively in a primarily holistic manner using herbs, vitamins, and minerals. All of our Mini  Nubians are from excellent show and milk lines such as Saada, Hidden Creek, Whiskey River Ranch, W4’s Caprine Pursuits, Daystar’s farm and Echo Hill’s farm.

We moved here just shy of three years ago with a dream to raise our 12 children with animals, hard work, home grown cuisine and fresh air. The natural next step once we moved here was to improve the fencing and find ourselves quality animals to raise. We have been connected with gracious friends with many years of experience, and with their help 2012-2013 became our first year breeding. We started with proven Standard and Mini Nubian lines; healthy stock and good milkers. Boy have we learned a lot and still have so much more to go!!!

 “A righteous man has a regard for the life of his animal” Proverbs 12:10

“Be thou diligent to know the state of thy  flocks, and look well to thy herds.” Proverbs 27:23

These two verses from the Scriptures are a daily reminder of our great responsibility to manage our herd well. Our desire is to raise up quality animals in a humane way that benefits them as they provide for us so faithfully with a glorious supply of milk, yogurt , cheeses, soap and sometimes even meat. We are attempting this through four acres of healthy fields and pasture and diverse foraging through our several acres of surrounding forestland. Our forests are an abundant supply of many much needed nutrients and beneficial wild medicinals. In our forests we have Oregon grape root, dandelion, oxalis,fern, wild ginger, plantain, maple, birch, pine and evergreen trees. We also grow Hawthorn berry ( a goats favorite), wild raspberry, blackberry, thimbleberry, huckleberry, and wild apple trees. Along with these delicacies our goats receive a daily portion of alfalfa, diverse grass hays, free choice minerals, kelp, and sodium bicarbonate as well as sulphur block, and apple cider vinegar. For our lactating does, they receive in addition; barley ,Oats, raspberry leaf, and a variety of sunflower seeds,pumpkin seeds, and fresh apples, carrots and squashes as available. Everything our goats ingest is organic and %100 natural.Our goats receive regular treatments of copper bolus for shiny coats and over all excellent health. In return our goats only provide the best tasting milk and pleasant company.

Breezee Creek Farm business card 2 2 2 2Why Miniature Dairy Goats?
(a Note from fellow Mini enthusiast and goat mentor, Daystar’s Farm)

“The standard purebred dairy goat breeds have been pushing for greater stature for the show ring which has resulted in standard dairy goat breeds getting larger in recent years.

“Standard Nubian goats crossed with Nigerian Dwarf goats  result in Mini Nubians, (Miniature Nubians) which are easier for children and seniors to handle than their larger relatives,  so hoof trimming, clipping, showing and milking become  much easier.

“Feed costs are rising and a Mini Nubian dairy goat can often produce only 1/3 less milk than the standard Nubian dairy goat while often consuming 2/3 less feed.

“(This will be proven with time, as they breed the size down with each generation.)

“Mini goats have become more in demand for the pet market too because of their smaller size as well.

“The influence of Nigerian Dwarf blood may serve to expand the breeding season past the fall months and increase the butterfat in the milk  as well.

“We note the percent of the Nubian and percent of the  Nigerian by listing them; Nubian first then Nigerian, in this way; (50/50%).”

Well there ya have it from those who have invested YEARS of blood, sweat, and sometimes even tears into the raising up and caring for Mini-Nubians and full size Nubians themselves. Next year we will have many more and we can hardly wait! There will be several to choose from that will be for sale for the right family. Please keep in touch!

If you have any questions or are looking for a Miniature- Nubian dairy goat to start or to add to your own herd, please e-mail us and we will be happy to help in any way we can.

Kidding Season Spotlight: Charlotte

Breezee Creek’s Charlotte is really just a stunning doe! She can’t help but stand out, being that she’s bright white and has the palest blue eyes you ever saw!

This year was her 2nd kidding. And I must say her udder is HUGELY improved this year! Her dam had had a very slight shelf in the foreudder, and lacked a defined medial (midline) altogether. However, this year, Charlottes udder has really BLOSSOMED! Its incredible, and we are beyond excited at just how stunning it is!

Charlotte boasts STRONG lateral attachments and a high rounded escutcheon, which gives her rear udder that high rounded look with a wide area of attachment. She still needs a bit more midline separation, but is improved over her dam in that respect as well. Her teats again are a bit widely spaced, would like to see them close together, but they are better size than last year. She boasted good udder texture last year, so we look forward to milking her again and trying her on One Day Milk Test this summer.

What are we really thrilled about concerning her udder though? Her FOREUDDER! Its utterly seamless! blends smoothly into her belly and just keeps on going! Everything about her udder is SOCKED ON TIGHT, she will not have to worry about her udder breaking down and loosing those wonderful attachments, cause she has so much attachment all around there’s no stress one just 1 area!

She kidded 2 bucklings, 1 is brown with her pale blue eyes, the other is beautiful sandgau (black with tan eye stripes and legs) and little bit of roaning. Both are available to be herdsires, as they are beyond excellent quality!

If you want color, long pendulous ears, roman noses, length of body, correct rumps, and udder attachments to withstand the test of time, THESE are the boys you NEED for your breeding program!

Charlotte is another we need to get updated photos of this summer so we can enter her in the Vshow, and we are SO excited to do so! Here are this years pre-kidding udder photos though, and you can get more info on Charlotte on her page, Here.

Please check out her boys on the “For Sale” page and comment or use the form on the “Contact Us” page to get more info!
