Meet The Cassette Family

 

Thank You for taking the time to visit our site and sharing in the history of our farm!  Please feel free to This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it or call if you have any questions about the animals featured on our website.
We started raising dairy goats as 4-H projects for sons Robert, Phil, and Markie's dad, Mark, forty years ago with most of the main breeds.  We soon realized that we needed to concentrate on two breeds and Alpines and Nubians were an easy choice.

We purchased our first Alpine in 1970 with the goal of developing genetically "Superior" quality bucks and does in the Alpine breed. In order to achieve our goal, we recognized the importance of using DHIR milk testing, classification (now linear appraisal) and show programs. Through the years, we have developed and/or used individuals who EXCELLED in these programs with consistency and dependability.

The following pages reflect years of breeding experience utilizing linear appraisal, and DHIR milk testing programs along with Artificial Insemination to produce "Highest Quality Stock."

The results of our breeding program  can be found in many top herds around the country. Specific results are as follows:
  • More than 110 permanent Grand Champions
  • Bucks listed in the top 15% of the USDA Sire Summary
  • Bucks and does qualifying in the Superior Genetics Program
  • Elite does for milk production as listed by USDA including many with 3,000 lbs. plus of production.
  • Seven National Spotlight Sales consignments.
  • Fifty-nine does appraised with a final score of EXCELLENT.
  • Young bucks qualifying for the ADGA Sire Development Program.

It is our sincere wish that you also will select a CHATEAU BRIANT buck or doe for your breeding program. Majority of animals raised on a CAE prevention program.


We are dedicating our site to Evelyn, our wife and mother, the Sweet Rose in our lives, to whom we granted the title of "Goodwill Ambassador". She served in that capacity throughout the many, many years that earned us the recognition from the ADGA Pioneers Program.
