Default Dairy Goat History (all breeds)


GCH SIERRA HILLS CICI - T314329

DOB: 03.09.1978

An impressive show doe in her own right, CiCi also exemplified the dairy ability of the Toggenburg with her three best records of 3690, 3820, and 3170 (actual) in 1980, 81, and 82.

Top show and production herds of the 80's and 90's utilized her sons in their breeding programs. Her most famous and influential son, Chivas Regal, continues via AI as a link to old blood carrying modern influence in the Toggenburg breed! Pedigree research shows a heavy Rio Linda influence.

MOUNT DOUGLAS JASON PIONEER - T000467259 (PB Buck)

I think I read somewhere when I was first scouting the posts here that someone had AI'd to this buck in the past few years. If you did, what did you get? I do have a couple of photos of his daugthers (from the Companeros herd). He seems to be a very well bred buck. Also have a photo of his dam somewhere.

From one Gruppy Ole Man to anouther I bet if you traced her liniage back on www.adga.org you'd find she's a decendant of Lilian Sandburg's heard, Connemara was the farm, her heard dubbed Chikaming, won numerous awards including Jenny a World Champion 4 Gallon a day Milker, oh yeah ya might have heard of her husband Carl Sandburg, he was an American writer and editor, best known for his poetry. He won three Pulitzer Prizes.

If anyone gets to N.C. Id go see the Sandburg farm its a National Historic Site some of her goats are still there http://www.nps.gov/carl/planyourvisit/things2do.htm
