new at Sir Echo Farm - Oberhasli Dairy Goats
2019 Brought us 2 beautiful baby boys into our
tribe! Life is so full with this family of now 12 grandchildren!
Our trip to Redmond for the National Show was
full of fun and success! We were blessed once again to share
precious time with friends and delight at the rewards of our efforts
with our herd.
Preparing for our trip, we decided to put
effort into a new display table including a "retrospective" review
of our National Show journey over the years. The results was a
showcasing of some of our favorite goats over the years and all the
memories of those trips.
Our breeding season was busy this year with an
extra large group of doe kids from the Spring as well as some of our
aged does that, much to our delight, continue to be strong and
capable of participating in helping the genetic development here!
That group included SGCH Sir Echo Mutay, 2015
ADGA National Champion, who will be 13 years old and is incredibly
active, healthy and fiesty! Also in that group is Brettz, 11 years
old; Lightening, Ricee and Tanzania, all coming 9 year olds, and
Jettz, 8 years old!!
We take great pride in the consistency of
longevity our does carry!

Britti's dam, SGCH Sir Echo Brickers, was the first Oberhasli ever
to achieve the score of 92 EEEE, and shared that with one other doe
that year. Brickers National Show placings include 3 times in the
top 4 in her classes over the years.
Brickers dam, SGCH Sir Echo Bray 90 EEEE, is the strength of many,
many animals in our own herd as well as many others throughout the
country using our genetics. Bray placed in the top 5 placings 3
times at the National Show.
We mourn this loss but continue to enjoy the strength of that dam
line and the effect is has had on our herd.
We have found much joy in every other aspect while showing in AZ,
CA, WI, and TX. We continue to thoroughly enjoy our efforts to work
on genetic development in our Oberhasli and are thrilled and
grateful to have placed some hopeful animals in the care of several
herds throughout the country that are committed to continuing those
efforts in their own hers. We benefit so much from those efforts and
we are so appreciative to them and wish the best for their
We are very pleased to have been acknowledged in 2017 for Elite Doe
status and Superior Genetics in our herd as well as another 92 EEEE
score with SG Sir Echo Lightening at 05-11. Stats as follows:
Production Type Index (PTI) and Estimated Transmitting Ability (ETA)
We are very excited about our 2018 kidding season with THREE
successful AIs and many promising breedings that will highlight some
of the strongest genetics in our herd!
