Joined 7 years ago from Yellville. Arkansas
Ken and his wife Candy love to farm and work with animals, especially goats. They also have a dog, a lama, several cats, peacocks, turkeys, and chickens. Ken has always been interested in genetics and livestock breeding.
Ken has a degree in agriculture from the University of Wisconsin and has over 50 years of experience raising goats having purchased his first registered dairy goats in 1962 while still a graduate student at UW. Candy was raised on a goat farm and has worked with goats all her life. They were married in 1966 and purchased their farm near Yellville, Arkansas, in 1967, where they still live. They brought 80 head of dairy goats with them when they moved to Arkansas from Wisconsin. At one time they had over 200 head of dairy goats.
They started breeding full blood Boer meat goats in 1999. Their goal is to breed a Boer goat that is very hardy and resistant to internal parasites. Internal parasites are a major problem with goats, especially in warm humid climates.
