My goal began and remains focused on breeding well rounded quality animals that can reproduce themselves. Genetically bred for good, solid milk production, linear appraisal scores and show ability.
                                                  

I have striven to breed animals that have a beautiful, distinctive look of their own, with a gentle, calm and loving disposition. Nubians that a presence and style that is a pleasure to rest my eyes on. The type of Nubian I love and have had the heart to breed are elegant, long boned animals, strong in general appearance and dripping with the beautiful Nubian breed character they are noted for. The long belled ears and strong roman nose.  It is this style of Nubian I strive for in my breeding program, the noble, the large, majestic Nubian.
                                                  
We believe in the official records of D.H.I.R and the ADGA Linear Appraisal system, which begin for us back in 1994. We began appraising in 1994 and D.H.I.R 1996.
D.H.I.R and L/A have been an effective management tool for us through the years in breeding fine Nubians and a tremendous asset for anyone investing in a Jacobs Pride animal.                                                   
Our herd management began and continues to be carefully managed for running a disease free herd.
We are and always have been a 100% CL free property and 100% CL free herd.
Our entire herd is 100% CAE negative. We run whole herd blood samples for CAE to insure we remain CAE negative.

We attend every birth, document deliveries, birth order and weights on all kids.
Because we do show and consequently are not a closed herd because of that fact, all our kids are removed at birth and fed our own heat-treated goat colostrum from our own stock. The kids are hand-raised on our own pasteurized goat’s milk until they leave our property.

In 2001we began testing for the recessive gene called, mucopolysaccharidosis IIID,
 or G-6-Sulfase deficiency, now commonly known as G6S.

We only sell G6S normal bucklings unless special arrangements and conditions have been
     made.
All of our herd sires are G6S normal.

                                                     
Thank you once again for your interest in our herd. It is my hope you enjoy your time spent visiting our web site and hope you relish our animals as much as we do.
