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.

2017 Kidding News
The 2017 kidding season actually began in late December 2016 when a very young doe, Opal surprised us by delivering a single doeling just two days after Christmas. Nanette kidded January 2nd 2017. She had a large stillborn doeling, a large buckling who died a week later, and a tiny doeling who survived. Agatha kidded January 5th with a single large buckling. Bristow kidded January 6th with twin doelings. Cerise Kidded February 5th with triplet bucklings. Unfortunately only one survived. Meg kidded March 4th with twin bucklings. There were four doelings and four bucklings. It appears Patience remains open. Some of these kids have been reserved, but we are now accepting reservations on the remainder. Complete planned breeding information is available on the "Kidding Schedule" page at the bottom of the "For Sale" page.
