About Our Advanced Registry Testing

Advanced Registry is our 305 day or longer testing, where you either test daily (barn records) or you can test monthly.  Some of our herds may test for a bit shorter time frame.

Analysis: This test averages out the milk over an exteded length of time, to give you a better idea of how your doe is doing in production over that time frame.

How our test is set up

Many years ago our tets was set up in a teired program for each type of goat.  The purpose is to show what category of milk your doe is producting.  We believe that it more fully shows dairy producduction, than just a set amount for that age category.

Then with that, we have several other areas of testing, as well. Those include Butterfat, Exteded Lactation and Lifetime milk production
