Dzimianski's Dairy Goats and 
Great Pyrenees Livestock Guardian Dogs

Herd Management

We maintain a clean herd, testing annually for TB, Brucellosis, and CAE. Our animals are abscess-free, and the herd is Certified and Accredited, and has consistently tested CAE negative according to the WSU ELISA test. We have attained the status of Scrapie Certified as of November 30, 2005. We dam raise our kids since we feel that this method produces healthier, faster growing kids, and we only maintain negative animals. All of our kids are handled extensively so that we have no behavior problems. Our kids frequently are the largest in their age classes. All of our goats have free access to pasture and deciduous forest. Our milkers are also fed alfalfa hay and Southern States Dairy Gold. We administer CD/T, and Rabies vaccinations, and worm as needed according to FAMACHA and fecal egg counts. Antibiotics are given only when necessary.

We require a $100.00 deposit on all goats ordered; $200 on all puppies. When pre-ordering kids before birth, please indicate a second choice in case your kid is not born. In the case that the kid(s) ordered are not born, we will contact you and offer you the choice of another kid or a refund of your deposit. We occasionally will offer milkers or mature bucks for sale. If you are interested in a mature animal, e-mail to inquire about availability. Prices of mature animals are based on performance.

We offer a replacement or refund guarantee in the event a goat tests positive for TB, Brucellosis, Scrapie or CAE within 3 months of leaving our farm. We recommend that any new animals always be isolated for 30 days, and examined before joining the new herd.
