Goat Town USA is a small herd of purebred nubian dairy goats located in Tahlequah, Oklahoma. In 1996, we started with an ecclectic mix of dairy goats and boers. In 1998 we registered our herd name with the American Dairy Goat Association. Shortly thereafter all the goats apart from the nubians were sold. In 2000 we took a break from goats but restarted the herd in its present location in 2006.
We have two main concerns: quality breeding and disease prevention. For the past five years we have been working with Pruittville lines and have selected our current herdsire, Lorenzo, to complement traits in our Pruittville sired does. We have maintained a CAE negative herd and test annually. Those test results are published on both the does and bucks pages of our website.

It is possible for kidding to begin by 12/27/16, but we expect the bulk of the kiddings to occur the first week of January 2017. It is possible for two does to kid as late as the first week of March 2017.
2016 Kidding News
There was a second kidding season in 2016. On July 1st Bristow delivered a single buckling. Meg delivered twin doelings on July 3rd. On July 4th Agatha delivered mixed twins. Finally, on July 17th Cerise delivered her first set of triplets, two bucklings and a doeling. Unfortunately the doeling lived only two days. Patience and Nanette remained open and did not kid. This is the first set of kids out of our new buck, Pruittville's L/P Lorenzo. All of these kids are for sale. Information about them can be found on the "For Sale" page of this site (pics soon).
The first kidding season 2016 began January 1st and ended January 5th. Seven does gave birth to 16 kids. There were ten doelings and six bucklings. Go to the "Kidding Schedule" on the "For Sale" to reserve kids. Sadly, Sadie Mae died from complications from her kidding.
