    Hi Everyone,
    I thought I'd take a minute and introduce myself. My name is Christina and I live in Minnesota with my husband, Peter, and our six lovelies. We have 11 goats...mostly Nubians and 4 Alpines. We absolutely love our goats and have owned them for 1 1/2 years now. We are learning tons day by day, but still have so much to learn. :D

    We have our goats for the nutritious milk products they provide for our family, some of which have allergies to cow milk. Having fallen in love with our goatie friends, we are planning to expand the herd so that we can be milking at least six summer and winter to have milk all year round. We like having very correct and healthy goats. So, we are striving to breed for great udders and conformation as well as high production.

    The most recent addition to the farm is the purchase of two Great Pyrenees to guard our little herd from the many coyotes, wolves, and occasional cougars around here. They are puppies that were born in a barn with goats, so hopefully all will go well.

    That's it. I hope to chat with everyone more in the near future!

    Blessings,
    Christina

    Hi Chrystyna,

    I am actually north of Alexandria. Somewhat between Alexandria and Fergus Falls. So, I'm in the middle western side of the state. I like Wisconsin as it's so pretty.

    Yes, I'm finding the information here helpful already. It's a gold mine for goat lovers. :lol

    Blessings,
    Christina
