Behind the Name

ADGA Genetics Pedigree

Every once and awhile a breeding turns out exactly the way you hope, Quivira is one of those. From a general appearance perspective, Quatchi was exactly what we breed for, likewise her dairy character and body capacity was lovely. She also had a high capacity mammary with impressive extension of fore. Unfortunately, she had a high but narrow rear udder and poor teat placement. We had tried various breedings with her to fix these traits, and normally they did, but we always lost something of Quatchi’s general appearance and style. We thought if any buck could maintain those qualities, while also improving rear width and teat placement, it would be Occult–and gosh dang it, we were right! 

As a kid, Quivira easily picked up a junior championship at the Oregon State Fair and then went on to win Best Junior Doe in Show. As a milking yearling, she has proven herself to be quite competitive with a small, but very well attached mammary on a huge frame. At just over a year old, she is already one of the tallest does in the herd, and we will not be surprised if she gives Ecstasy a run for that title in a year or two.
