2021 Breeding Stock for Sale


 

 

Health

All our animals are certified free of Maedi-Visna / CAE for over 10 years (please note that Gård & Djurhälsan accepts the German certificates for Maedi-Visna and CAE, but will only issue a Swedish certificate after our animals have been tested here in Sweden. This can happen no earlier than 1 month after the last doe has given birth).

Our herd is also free of para-TB, pseudo-TB (caseous lymphadenitis), and TSE (Scrapie), and there have been no cases of foot-rot, Brucellosis, or Chlamydophilia abortis. Health certificates are sufficient for export to all EU countries and abroad.

To manage intestinal parasites, we move our herd to a fresh piece of pasture every day. Every 3 to 4 months, we sample feces from randomly selected individuals and analyse it for parasite eggs. The latest analysis was done between May 9 and May 15. In the 6 lambs we examined, we found nematode eggs in only one young ewe (45 eggs/gram feces), all the other lambs' feces samples were free of parasite eggs. In our breeding ram, Jens, we found 134 eggs/gram. In the 5 adult ewes we analysed, an average of 155 eggs/gram were found with a maximum 388 eggs/gram (Mia, ewe 59) and a minimum of 0 eggs/gram (Marina, ewe 65). We never found nematode eggs in our female goats, and only very few in our male goats (well below 50 eggs/gram).

 

Pedigrees

We imported pure-bred East Frisian sheep of high-yielding lines from an award-winning breeder in Germany. These sheep are registered with the Schafzüchtervereinigung Nordrhein Westfalen. Those and all following generations are registered with ElitLamm.

We imported pure-bred Anglo Nubian goats of high-yielding lines from Germany. These goats are registered with the Landesverband Bayrischer Ziegenzüchter. All following generations will be registered with the British Goat Society.

 

Milking records

Official milking records of the mothers and grandmothers of our adult sheep and goats were provided by the respective goat and sheep breeder association, and can be viewed farther down this page.

Milk data average of out Anglo Nubian goats: 4.64 kg/day; 4.70% fat; 3.50% protein; cheese-yield is significantly higher than in Swedish Landrace goats.

"Det har exempelvis visats att mjölk från Nubiska getter innehåller höga TS- halter (fett 4,4 %, protein 3,9 % varav kasein 3,5 %), vilket ger ett högre ostutbyte (10 L mjölk → 2,7kg ost), jämfört med Alpin getter som har ett lägre innehåll av fett (2,8 %), protein (2,5 %) varav kasein (2,2 %), och ger 1,7 kg ost från 10 liter mjölk (Soryal et al., 2005). För att producera 1 kg ost från svenska mjölkgetter behövs ungefär 12 liter mjölk (Lipage, 2010), vilket delvis kan förklaras av mjölkens sammansättning (ungefär 3 % fett, 2,8 % protein och 4,2 % laktos). Svenska mjölkgetter och Alpine getter har liknande TS-innehåll i mjölken, men skillnader i ostutbyte mellan de två raserna kan bland annat bero på mjölkens proteinsammansättning (Park et al., 2007)."

Anglo Nubian buck lambs for sale will be selected in July

We generally expect that the rams will go to buyers starting in June.

We ask for 10.000SEK for our pure-bred East Frisian rams and 12.000SEK for our pure-bred Anglo Nubian bucks, plus VAT. The buyer will receive an invoice for a non-refundable 25% deposit. The remainder is due on the day the breeding ram/buck is picked up. The order in which we receive deposits is the order of choice of ram/buck lambs. If we cannot supply your lamb to you (for example because of death or illness), we will refund your deposit.
