Starfire Nubians

Purebred Nubian Senior Does 

A few years ago we were working on an export and gathering bucks. We picked up twins that had different sires. A buck got loose and DNA proved the sires of each kid. I joked for years that this was going to be my new breeding program. The more I  thought about how different those bucks were, the more it made sense to me. It's like using IVF without all the expense. A buck gives you kids from many different does. Does are a much slower process being stuck using one buck a year. Using more than one buck speeds up the diversity and pinpoints the better crosses. I've tried it several times and love the results so I've embraced this new Double Dipping breeding program! Many of the does will be bred to two or more sires. All kids will be DNA typed to determine sires.

Tilly was Grand Champion and Best Doe in Show at her first show as a kid.  She freshened with the beautiful udder that we would expect from our strong doe line, but has some texture problems in her mammary making her foreudder look a little off. She is one of the first does to catch your eye when you walk in the milker pen and has the personality to go with it. She's our "Who's that doe!" We didn't think she would see much of the show ring but we took her as an extra to a three ring show and she finished her championship!  Tilly placed 8th in the 5&6 year old class at the 2016 ADGA National Show with comments that she had one of the best mammaries in the class.  Tilly has been bred to Man of Steel, Kyros and Manjelly and had quads, all sired by Steel, So much for double dipping! One buck available. The does will remain in the herd.

Ananke freshened with a lovely udder with a very well attached, long smooth foreudder. First two tests as a yearling were 8.6 & 9.0 pounds and she is not disappointing us as a 2 year old with her first test 11.1. She finished her championship last summer making her our first 5th generation SGCH Starfire doe.  She looks great this year but had a single buck kid and not milking like she did her first two freshenings. She has one buck available sired by Kyros.

Hedy is as correct as they come. Almost always with her head buried in the grain or hay, she carries a little extra fleshing but is still very dairy with wide open ribs and that beautiful depth of body we strive for in our herd. You just have to work a little to find those ribs! She was Grand Champion as chunky dry yearling. She continued to look better and better as the year went on, picking up a Reserve or two. This year when she freshened, we knew it was her year. At her first show she finished her championship. Nothing available.

Meli is a product of our double dipping. Her two sisters were sired by another buck and as different as night and day. Meli has a longer bone pattern and is sharper and more dairy than her sisters. She also happens to be the only doe kid from our purchase of Kryptonite, son to Pika the 3 time National Champion and a buck I will miss for some time to come. She freshened 10 days early and did not come into as much milk as the other yearlings but she has a dandy udder! I'm very excited about the yearlings this year and especially Meli. As excited as we were about her, she developed mastitis, has been treated by several products recommended by our vet and  dried off to heal. She freshened this year and again dipped right back into mastitis. Not sure we will ever get her straightened out, but still trying. Meli was been bred to Man of Steel and kidded with quads. One doe remains in the herd. Nothing available.

Nebula is another product of our double dipping. She and her sister Omarosa were sired by Bourbon and Meli by Kryptonite. Such different kids. Omarosa and Nebula were little tanks. They are wide and deep yet still have that dairy strength. Omarosa, the best of the three, is working and living out her life in Russia. At Nebula's first show as a kid she stood 2nd behind her half sister Phlavia in both rings and a large class of intermediate kids.  She freshened with a very competitive udder, maybe ever better than her big sister Hedy.  At her debut as a yearling milker she was twice Reserve Grand Champion picking up her first milking leg. Nebula has been bred to Man of Steel and Sweet William and has a buck and a doe available. Doe is sired by Steel, buck is sired by William.

Phlavia is our fist daughter from Phae, blonde and beautiful like her dam and she knows it. She is just so elegant, she takes your breath away. At her first show as a kid she was Reserve Champion in the first ring and Grand Champion in the second. She freshened with a beautiful udder but just not big enough for that huge frame. As a two year old, she is a very big girl Nothing available.

When we sent Karysma back to Dancers Ridge, we were to get a doe kid from her but she was nursing the doe kid and we had our hands full with a big export so she got to stay. We picked her up when we got William and Kyros back a year later and wild as a jay bird. Being a dam raised kid she hated us but after freshening she thinks we're not all that bad. She is very much like her dam, from her color to her style. A no nonsense, get to business kind of doe.  Nothing available.

Purity came along with Kaptivate. Thiry felt pretty strong about her coming with us and Kaptivate needed a friend. I hate dry yearlings so both does were thrown in with Steel for the summer. Purity kidded in December with a beautiful, well attached udder. She cycled back in heat while Manjelly and Lark were in the pen cleaning up so she was rebred and kidded even better than we thought. She's a bit of a space cadet yet, a work in progress!

Phergie has her mother's elegance and then some. She freshened with a very well attached udder with perfect teat placement, reminding me very much of Angelia's udder as a yearling, maybe better.  Looking for big things from this doe! Nothing available.
