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 their * for milk production.

Most of our doe kids are from does with linear appraisal scores of 87 and higher and mammaries with a score of V or E.

Our animals were appraised in September 2023, not the best time for appraisal. Voltand Saffron achieved a final linear appraisal score of 91. Winesap scored 90 and Lumen scored 88.
