I have been so touched by people's cans and concern for our goats and Adult cams in maine others would be too! The stories of people watching it casm moved me to tears on many occasions: When one of our goats tipped over the drop cam, and it fell in a bucket of water, despite a tight farm budget, we went right out and got a new one because everyone from city offices around the country said that they might not survive their work day without goats bleating in the background! When it got rained on, a dear farm friend sent us a new Dropcam to keep the video feed coming! Some technology makes us more human!

Old Lady Goat Sonnet Many of the goats we first got, are now getting old. Some will unlikely be bred or milked again, but they will live out their days with us and enjoy lazy days in the pasture with their goat kids from past years. We think this is what they deserve after years of providing us delicious milk! Loved By Folks Of All Ages This lovely man visited twice and then his caretakers asked us to bring him his favorite baby goat Rocky on his death bed for a little snuggle.

This little wether would be culled on many dairy farms, but on that day and many others the joy he brought was invaluable. Wethers are Cute Too! Many dairy farm kill all bucklings as they are born because they don't have the space to raise them up for meat, or the market to sell them. We neuter most of the boys and find homes for them in pairs as pets. Even the weakest get a chance Rocky was the smallest, weakest goat we have ever had born on the farm. We did not expect to be able to save him. He was as limp as a dishtowel in his first hours of life We had to keep him since he was such a little fighter, and now a year old, he is one of our most beloved goats! The Love Makes Our Products taste so good!

Can't you taste a difference in food made with pure love? Bonnie and Don Pedro were our first goats ever. She was in middle school then, and is in college now. In the time between, we have grown the herd to 23, built a cheese kitchen and birthed many, many sweet kids! These two goats will always hold a special place in our hearts for setting us on a path we could have never imagined 10 years ago! Sometimes 4 generations of does nap together in the sun. We can not imagine culling older goats or baby goats, as this would ruin the joy of watching these families together. This also lets us milk the dairy goats in each morning.

We think this story is part of the culture which makes eating such a joy. We thought the Year of the Goat would be a perfect time to bring attention to a cause we care deeply about. We would love our visitors to consider the benefits of No-cull farming. Sunflower Farm is one of a handful of No Cull commercial dairy goat farms in the state. On average, a fourth of a dairy herd is culled for various reasons each year. This might include all newborn bucklings male baby goatolder dairy goats who are no longer fertile, and any goat who does not produce the desired amount of milk.

We know first hand how hard it is for dairy operations to remain solvent. Culling practices can help farms increase their profit margin, save time and work towards genetics in a dairy herd that emphasize high milk production. We have consciously chosen another path for our animals. We are working hard to prove that a farm can be both profitable and humane. We have kept second jobs as teachers so that we can explore ways to generate income on a small farm without the pressure of having to operate in a way that would take all the joy out of what we do. At Sunflower Farm, every goat born on the farm is named and valued and we cherish our animals long after their commercial productivity while providing them the very best feed, medical attention and love.

Farming is hard daily work for all involved. Although the goats enjoy lots of time grazing in the field and enjoying the attention of visitors, they work hard too. The does at our farm take excellent care of their kids. Anyone who has been a parent knows how much work this is! They also hop onto the milk stand eagerly and give us milk so we can provide delicious cheese and other dairy products for our local neighborhood. We see it as part of our contract with our animals to do everything we can to make their life happy and healthy since they give so much to us.

We also know that these dams love their kids, and so we find caring homes for any we can't keep often long before we breed we have a full waiting list. Each kid has a distinct personality and we grow incredibly attached to all of them by the time they leave at 8 weeks. The notion of culling all the bucklings at birth as many farms do as general practice is not acceptable to us. Because they make such incredible outdoor pets, we have had no problem finding homes for all the kids. Another point to consider is although high producing goats are satisfying in a dairy operation for sure, there are some benefits to a goat or cow that is a moderate producer. A growing number of Americans struggle with lactose intolerance.

Perhaps this is connected to the push for higher production beyond what is natural for a breed. Butter fat content in milk is highest in animals who make less milk. Nigerians have the highest butterfat content of any goat and make an average of cups per milking. As butter fat goes up, lactose goes down. So, the highest producers, also often have the highest percentage of lactose in their milk. Skim milk has the highest lactose content. While we work to improve the genetics of our herd with each breeding, we keep all our dairy goats and feel they all have something to offer on the milk stand. Lastly, the idea of killing an animal that has spent its life serving our farm is incomprehensible to us.

Many of our does have kids and grandkids who live on the farm. When they nap in the afternoon, they curl up in a heap by family, sometimes generations all snuggled together. We believe even the old lady goats who can no longer be bred deserve this time with family. While culling might be necessary in a huge dairy operation, we believe that people who buy local are looking for an alternative which is more in line with how they would treat their own animals.
