LAMANCHA GOATS

Lamancha GoatThe present American LaMancha was accepted as a breed for registry on January 27, 1958 with the first true LaMancha being Fay's Ernie, L-1. Approximately 200 animals were accepted as original stock. Since then, the tiny-eared dairy goats have spread throughout the country and are enjoying a surge in popularity, due largely to their dairy character, adaptability, and of course, their most well-known feature, or should we say lack of it -- no ears. (Dairy Goat Journal, January 1978).

The LaMancha goat was developed in the USA. It has excellent dairy temperament and is an all-around sturdy animal that can withstand a great deal of hardship and still produce. Through official testing this breed has established itself in milk production with high butterfat.

The LaMancha face is straight with the ears being the distinctive breed characteristic. There are two types of LaMancha ears, gopher and elf. Bucks must have gopher ears which cannot be longer that one inch to be registered. Any color or combination of colors is acceptable. The hair is short, fine and glossy.

We have had Lamanchas for many years. Some of our original animals go back to the Clover Meadow herd owned by Paul Cappiello. Our present day herd consists of many of the older Little Rainbow herd owned by Barb and Tom Reed. Our first Spotlight Sale purchase was a beautiful Lamancha buck bred by Aaron Carter. We also wish to thank Lynn Fleming for some wonderful genetics in the bucks from Lynnhaven. We are pleased with the young stock that has come out of these breeding
Unfortunately we really had to cut back on the number of animals we had and we decided that Lamanchas would be the ones to go. We have retained the buck listings as a reference for our semen sales.
