Herd Sires of Cadence Dairy Goats
Liberty Ranch LSS Fairbanks (ADGA Pedigree)
We do make our animals available for outside does to breed in the driveway. We do not have a place to board does so you must bring your doe in heat. If you need suggestions on how to catch your doe in heat, please email us.
Your doe needs a current (in the last 3 months) CAE test before you come to breed with our boys. This is not just for our protection, but also for yours. By requiring this of every doe who comes, you can be assured that our bucks have not bred anything but clean animals.
All young bucks are issued "Doe Only" service memos. This is a decision to protect the genetics of the breeds we raise and love by only allowing proven bucks to sire more bucks. The world is full of mediocre bucks, we don't need to contribute more. Service memos given with a 4H discount are also issued "Doe Only".
Contact us with as much notice as possible either with an email (preferred) or calling my personal cellphone (in ADGA directory).

Copperfield, named after the famous magician, was acquired from Barnowl Dairy Goats, another herd that shares the vision that LaManchas can be structurally correct and productive without being enormously large.
Copperfield is a cross of several of Barnowl's milkiest and showiest doe lines. Hockus Pockus is one of the highest producing does in the herd with incredible dairy strength. Copperfield inherited this beautiful rib and body capacity. Quantum Leap has the level top line and wide rump that stamp the Vigilante News offspring.
Copperfield's daughters drip dairy strength and open rib. Mammary systems generally are improved with greater length of fore udder, width of rear udder and overall capacity and corresponding production relative tot he dam. Occasionally, the Copperfield daughters may be close between the hocks and a bit soft on their rear pasterns.
Breeding Fee: Copperfield's breeding fee is $75 (4H/FFA discount available).
Semen available from us - contact us if you are interested.

Escapade was reserved following my judging trip to Colorado in 2013 when I saw his full sister, South-Fork Sweet Hailey - an impressively powerful yet feminine doe. I just knew that I needed to add that combination to the herd.
South-Fork Sweet Trick VEEE91, Escapade's dam, was on the Top 10 list in her 8-year old lactation (the oldest doe on the top 10 list that year) and remains structurally correct into her mature years. Escapade's sire, Tempo Bode Miller, offers the lovely general appearance of his dam, Tempo Hannah.
Escapade has a strong set of feet and legs, his dam's wide, level rump, and a lovely wedged shoulder assembly. His daughters so far have improvements in rump structure, greater angularity to the rear legs, and improvements in mammary system with lovely globular udders that are smoother and longer in the fore udder, with greater teat delineation and closer teat placement.
Breeding Fee: Escapade's breeding fee is $75 ($50 youth projects) and limited quantities of semen are also available at 5/$135.

I very seldom retain homebred bucklings, but when Fairbanks was born in January of 2015, the combination of pedigree with both his and his dam's structure was simply too tantalizing, and I haven't been disappointed as his first kids have hit the ground.
Fairbanks is sired by Kastdemur's SA Stingray, son of the 2012 National Champion Avena, and whose littermate sister scored VEEE91 at 3 years old. Fairbanks' dam is one of my favorite does in the herd, Liberty Ranch GSA Denali. although a first freshener, Denali (Alaska x Arabica) made a quick stamp on the herd when she won VEVE89 (an 89 is as high as a first freshening doe can be scored in a standard lactation). Her mammary system is the outstanding combination of capacity and high, wide, extremely well supported attachments with nearly ideal teat placement and length.
The 2016 kids who have arrived have the strength in general appearance and dairy angularity to make them exciting additions to the herd. Fairbanks will be used extensively in the Fall 2016 breeding plans.
Breeding Fee: Fairbanks' breeding fee is $50 ($35 youth projects) and will be collected Fall 2016.

On the recommendation of a friend, I had contacted KBarC the year before acquiring Dandy. Then, in spring of 2013, a trip to the east coast allowed me to get to know the Youngers and be able to hand pick Dandy.
At that time, his dam, Bracelet, was an immature first freshener, but I hoped for great things knowing her pedigree, particularly her dam Wearnpearls. Bracelet has since grown into herself. finishing her championship in the Toggenburg dense East Coast, and scoring EEEE92 as a four year old. His sire hails from the equally as competitive Legendairy herd, out of their outstanding doe Rhumba EEEE92 and 2011 Reserve Best Udder.
Since the Toggenburgs only make up about a quarter of the herd, Dandy has not yet been used extensively, but as his first daughters have freshened, I've been thrilled with the balanced, globular shape, long foreudder and uniform width to the top of the rear udder. The junior does are stretchy with correct toplines and feet and legs, as well as the sharpness and angularity to complement it.
Breeding Fee: Dandy's breeding fee is $75 ($50 youth projects) and limited quantities of semen are abailable at 5/$135.
