Gloaming Nubians

We've been raising Nubians since 1982 with our focus on animals that will be structurally correct and give lots of milk. We don't show often but we are on DHIR and are appraised yearly.

We milk year-round and our does often produce milk for extended lactations of greater than 400 days.

Most of the older does have earned ADGA's Superior Genetics designation (SG) as well as their * for milk production.

Most of our doe kids are from SG does with linear appraisal scores of 87 and higher and mammaries with a score of V or E. All the bucks we are using for 2018/2019 breedings have been tested for G6S deficiency and are negative.

We have one yearling buck available. He is Gloaming Semolina's Gill. We used him this winter to breed many of our does. He has been throwing kids with a lot of color!!

Our 2019 kids have started to arrive.
