March 9, 2019- The sun is shining in full force and I am in the library of Lakeland College working on some items for the Student Managed Farm Livestock Research Unit's Finances. In month and a half, I will be writing the final exams for the 2 year Animal Science Technology diploma (it is not a pre-vet course). I have learned quite a bit...it is just a matter of remembering it at the appropriate time! I have decided to continue on to complete my degree at the University of Saskatchewan! Needless to say, I will not be driving home often. Two more years of school and then I think I will be really fried and done with schooling!
Anyways, to stuff a goat person who does not know me will care more about...May is fast approaching. I will be sending the follow-up fecal samples away to retest for Johnes and to test, for the first time, the 2018 doelings that I retained. Once that occurs, kidding will begin in June and the kids will be raised in a Johnes free environment!!! We should only be kidding in June and July. Kids will then be weaned end of August/beginning of September.
Please contact me early to be put on the waiting list for kids.
I will upload the Johnes test results once I receive them in May. I will also have a select few mature does available for sale come spring.
SRL Fainters was established in 2014 with the purchase of the Twilight Acres nucleus breeding flock. In 2016, my brother, Goats R Us Miniatures, decided to exit the goat business. I purchased the majority of the flock (which I had managed for 5 years prior) which doubled my numbers. In the winter of 2018, I was given the opportunity to purchase the last and precious doe, Twilight Acres Cayenne, from Twilight Acres as well as three bred does from Caprine Falls, as she reduced her numbers due to health concerns. These recent additions add the much wanted colour factor to the flock. In my effort to supply quality breeding stock and pets, opportunities are taken to provide you with choices that satisfy your desires for your perfect goat.
I graduated from R.F. Staples Secondary School in 2014. I completed the Christian Ministry diploma at Millar College of the Bible in the spring of 2017. I am currently in the Animal Science Technology Diploma program at Lakeland College. The plan is to either go farming after this or maybe I will go and take a Charted Accountant program at an university. I haven't quite decided.
Please use the contact form to send an email. I will do my best to get back to you as soon as possible.
