Time to put the gloves on and go to work!
My mentor, the late Jean Miller of Indiana Noon-Shine Nubians and Lamanchas, told me years ago that raising goats was 80% management and 20% genetics. After nearly thirty years of working with nubians, I can't agree with her more. You don't win shows in fair barns, you win them in your own barn, with the hard work and dedication it takes to make your animals live up to their potential. So with that in mind, we decided to take a new look at how we do things here at Risin' Creek, and after looking at our operation we decided to take on the slogan: "Its time to put the gloves on and go to work!"
We've built a new website, a seventy two foot extention on to our barn, remodeled our milking parlor, and plan to add a pipeline milking system and rework our kid raising area over the winter. That is some good progress to a herd that has already had an ADGA National Show Reserve Grand Champion (Risin' Creek There She Is in 2011) and an ADGA National Show Junior Champion (Risin' Creek Dakota Katlyn in 2007) along with Premier Breeder and Exhibitor awards at the Indiana State Fair, Kentucky State Fair, and the North American International Live Stock Exposition.
