|Four Seasons Farm is located in Jordan, MN close to the Minnesota River. We raise pastured, high-quality registered Saanen & Nubian dairy goats with tender loving care. Saanen dairy goats (all white) are an excellent dairy breed and Nubian dairy goats (long eared breed) are excellent for dairy and meat purposes. Both breeds have wonderful personalities!
We are proud to be members of the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA) and the Minnesota Dairy Goat Association (MDGA). In 2014, we are one of three breeders in MN who are enrolled in ADGA’s “Plus” Program – showcasing our commitment to performance testing.
|Herd health is very important to us. Our animals are tested annually for CAE. All animals (including kids) are tested in the fall, usually when kids are 6 months old and when confirming pregnancy status on does. Our kids are raised on pasteurized milk, receive a CDT vaccine when they are disbudded and tattooed, and are on a consistent coccidiosis control program. The kids have free choice milk, hay, Big Gain Kid Grower and Cargill Black Onyx minerals at all times.
2013 was an amazing year for our herd. We participated in the 2013 ADGA National Show that was held in St. Paul, MN. We we’re thrilled to win the 1st place Saanen Jr Get of Sire with our home bred buck: FSF Irwin Bentley *B. We also placed competitively in most of the classes we entered. Following Nationals, we were honored to have FSF Bentley Madison chosen as Jr CH Saanen doe at the 2013 MN State Fair. We are into our third year of DHIA milk testing. We are thrilled to have many does earn their first *M designation. As a result of participating in linear appraisal and DHIA milk test we have many does who have earned their Superior Genetics (SG) status.
|2014 has been a roller coaster of a year. The spring was a hard one at the farm with a number of hard kiddings and a few significant losses. As we prepared for the 2o14 MN State Fair, we didn’t have high expectations. We were so honored and humbled with the performance of our herd. FSF Bentley Brooklyn was named Jr CH Saanen doe and FSF Most Wanted Livingston was named Jr CH Nubian doe. Livingston went on to be our first ever Best Doe in Show! Along with these accomplishments, SGCH FSF Cosmo Las Vegas was recognized with a production award, we were awarded first place Herdsmanship, and FSF Irwin Bentley *B was recognized as Premier Sire for the Saanen breed. To say the least, this state fair was our best yet! We will have kids available for sale from our 2015 kid crop. A deposit of $100 will hold the breeding or kid of your choice.|
|If, however, the kid of your choice is not born or not available, your deposit will be refunded or transferred to the next year. We reserve the right to retain any kid born for herd replacement.|
