Bassefield Fainters

About Our Goats


Three generations of Bassefield does (Dorey, Junebug, and Mercedes)

We have been raising goats for over 30 years.  Our original herd was a group of hardy Brush goats.  In the early 90s, we added some Nubians to our herd to get some leg under our Brush goats, increase milk production, and introduce some spots.  As we soon realized, this was a big mistake because Nubians are prone to worms.  In 1999, we purchased our first Myotonic Goats as we understood they were more resistant to worms and we liked that they were meatier goats.  In January 2004, we sold our Nubian/Brush bucks and now have Myotonics and percentage Myotonic does.  Over the years we have bred for worm resistance, good mothering ability, and good dispositions, fine tuning our herd to bring the best possible goats to our customers.

We do not grain feed our goats as our pastures are large enough that forage is their mainstay.  We do supplement with hay in snowy or icy weather.

Our Myotonic Goats are medium size.  All of our purebred stock is registered with the Myotonic Goat Registry.
