Great opportunity to add a special goat to your herd.
In the past few years, we’ve had our 1st ARMCH,our 1st GCH,our 1st homebred SGCH, have had a doe win Jr Grand at the AGS Nationals, earned our numerous ARs, had several does make ADGA’s top 10 list for DHI ,have had does appraise 90 & even several 92 in linear appraisal, have had several does we’ve bred awarded Superior Genetics, have the 2011 ANDDA total performer , have placed well at ADGA nationals several years,even winning production awards at the National show and had gotten a grade A dairy license in the past. We look forward to bright future continuing to aim for our goal of breeding goats who do well in the show ring as well as in milk production.
At Agape Oaks, we bought our 1st Nigerian Dwarf Goats in 2004 and immediately fell in love with these wonderful little goats. We added our 1st La Mancha in 2006 and love our big girls….so much that we are switching over gradually to an all LaMancha herd. Our goal is to breed excellent quality, structurally correct Nigerian Dwarf & La Mancha goats for show, milk production and pets. We expect good dairy production as well as show wins and of course great personality.
This started out as my son, Andrew’s project and he saved his money for years to buy his goats. Now he’s 21 & has lost interest but I’m hooked on these wonderful goats. I enjoy the showing, the milking, planning the breedings and the excitement when the long awaited new kids arrive. Our goats have provided us with so much entertainment, an abundant supply of milk, lots of stress relief, and we’ve made so many wonderful friends because of them.. They’re affectionate, funny ,and very smart- we look forward to many years of fun with them as well as goat’s milk and new kids in the future.
We have relocated to near Eugene OR with our pampered herd of Nigerian Dwarf Goats and La Mancha goats . The zoo also includes a Great Pyrenees, Pyrenes Anatolian cross & an Anatolian Shepherd…dogs who guard the goats as well as a Border Collie to “supervise” & a barn cat.
I keep getting asked what Agape Oaks means. Agapē (3 syllables, from Greek), means divine unconditional self-sacrificing love. It’s the love shown in John 3:16 For God so loved the world, that He gave his only begotten Son, that whosoever believeth in Him should not perish, but have everlasting life . God has shown us the amazing love in so many ways- including this wonderful herd of goats! The Oaks part is because our original property was covered with magnificent oak trees & the new property has several huge towering oaks as well!
We’re members of ADGA , AGS , NWODGA ,& ANDDA with all of our goats registered in ADGA & a few in both ADGA & AGS- it got too expensive to register in both registries & for my herd, ADGA offered more programs that I use.
We’ve been in 305 day DHI milk test with ADGA since 2007. We have been on DHI with AGS in the past but discontinued to keep the budget under control We’ve enjoyed seeing the results & will continue DHI. We love to sell to buyers who will continue on milk test and will give a refund for those buyers who obtain a *M with ADGA ( see sales terms for details) For 2008 we added linear appraisal as another tool to evaluate our herd and plan to continue to appraise as well. We attend as many shows as we can, both locally as well as national shows.
Our goats health is very important to us. We test routinely for CAE -our most recent whole herd negative test was Jan 2016. We also tested negative for TB & Brucellosis April 2010. In the past we’ve tested for Johnnes & CL, but we don’t test for them routinely. We are always happy to test any goat for anything a buyer would like tested ( at the buyer’s expense) . All kids are bottle raised on pasteurized goats milk and are available at 3 weeks of age. We feed our goats the best quality grass hay, and organic alfalfa hay available along with organic grain ( for milkers and kids) , kelp and loose minerals. They have access to nice pastures on any days that weather allows.
