AppleJo Farms milking routine will begin again January 2024 in our brand new Dairy Barn Milking facility. We allow our does to raise their own kids, separating them from one another at night once the kids are eating solid feed. This provides plenty of milk for the farm family each morning and, we feel, produces healthier kids. Once kids are weaned we drop most of our does down to a once-a-day milking schedule unless the demand for milk customers requires twice-a-day milking.
New Testing is being done on all of AppleJo Farms Goats. Each goats DNA is used to perform this very important test to find out what variants our milk contains of Alpha-S1 CaseinWhat is Alpha-S1 CaseinThe gene underlying the production of Alpha-S1 Casein in goat's milk shows polymorphisms that affect the amount of protein and fat produced. This test detects variants known to be correlated with high and low production levels of alpha-s1 casein.Phenotype: The gene underlying the production of alpha-s1 casein in goat's milk shows polymorphisms that affect the amount of protein and fat produced. Higher levels of alpha-s1 casein are associated with the best cheese-making, and research suggests that low levels may be associated with reduced milk sensitivities for some people.Variants:
- E, F, N = associated with low content of alpha-s1 casein
- A, B = associated with high content of alpha-s1 casein

2023 AppleJo Farms New HerdI'm so proud of all of you Modern Homesteaders! People ask me why I have such top quality goats when I don't show or put them in performance programs yet. It is because I wish to support Homesteaders like you! I want all of you who want a highly productive dairy herd to be able to buy them at a reasonable fair price and flourish under your care.2023 has been all about finding the very best genetics in specific Dams and Bucks which have an outstanding record in Performance Programs such as the ADGA Top Ten Performance Breed Leaders List. These are leaders in Milk Production, Butterfat Productions and Protein Production. Also, other Performance Programs and ADGA National winners have factored prominently in my search of bucklings and doelings to add to my new herd in 2023. I will have 3 of these top performance does having kids available late this year. Put your Reservation or Wait List request in now to be notified when kids arrive!Just as promised:

Here's why I chose these Tiny Hill Nigerian Goats from does on the ADGA elite list, to be the foundation of the new AppleJo Farms Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goat Herd:
"In 2022 we had ten does on the ADGA elite list. We’ve got dairy stars for days, and all our our bucks are *B with daughters, sisters, or both daughters and full sisters on test. We’ve got two ADGA Young Sire Development Program Qualifiers, and in 2020 we had two ADGA Top Ten does."
