received its first export order. We were pleased to
send a large shipment of Nubian goats to Glenn and Bernard

In our travels we have
seen goats and sheep and cattle in many
countries. We have visited with farmers and listened to their
requirements, problems and goals. Without
exception the primary use is for milk and meat. Here at Indian
Hill our goats, sheep and cows are born and
raised in large pastures. We understand that
animals that are bulked up for the show ring, although
beautiful, have a very difficult time adjusting to life
abroad. Excess fat covers conformation flaws.
Therefore, we insist on lean muscle mass in our animals.
Our females are chosen for good conformation and long
productive lives with the ability to give plenty
of milk to feed their offspring. Our males must also have good
conformation as well as a good
temperament. Our animals have few birthing problems and that
trait is carried to their offspring.
Indian Hill meets the
need of healthy, solid, conformation fault free animals.
Because of the adherence to integrity, the majority of our
buyers are repeat customers.
All of our animals are
sold by private treaty.
