Our herd contains both well known boer lines and unknown lines whose value we have discovered and utilized. We use our bucks as well as AI to maintain diversity in our core herd. Does are selected based on type and function. Bucks are selected on the same criteria while also giving consideration to which genetics are related. The live cover bucks we are currently using are:
WHOLESOME HILL MAXIMUM CHARM
WHOLESOME HILL ROCK STARRR
WHOLESOME HILL WHITE BOII
WHOLESOME HILL ACTIVE EXPLOSION
WHOLESOME HILL RUNNING AMOK
WHOLESOME HILL WHITE DECISION
Currently we also have AI kids from:

Wholesome Hill Green Not Stupid
"Max" is the largest of our senior bucks. He is the buck we use to improve size, clean up teats, straighten toplines, and add a temperament that includes "desire to please". He is absolutely mammoth in his size, weighing 291 pounds at 19 months old. He is hands down the fastest growing buck we have produced or purchased.
"Rock Starrr" is the dual industry type buck we use to get more compact frame on kids for market and wether type animals while increasing meatiness. He is moderately framed but he is longer, lower, and carries more width on a slower growing frame than his senior buck cohorts, we are extremely excited about his ability to place width on narrow framed does as well as his ability to hold his weight practically on air.
"White Boii" is our fullblood herdsire who hails from the Shazam bloodline that produced the famous Powell Holman doe known as "Skittles"(also owned by us), White Boii is her fullblood completely white son. "Skittles" has all the old world values: mothering, kidding, production, slow hoof growth, while having real size. At 9 years old she is still a main producer here. White Boii is only eclipsed in size by Max, while the trait we are seeing most in the limited kids we have from him is hefty bone.
"Explosion" is hard to even describe in words, he is hands down the best temperament, most laid back, easy keeping buck on the entire farm. He is beautiful in his form, and very large for a dappled buck. He is the most senior buck in residence and the buck who "trains" other bucks growing out for us. He has been tested for both casein and scrapie resistance and is not only what we seek in a dappled herdsire but carries double copies of the scrapie resistant gene as well. He is also double high casein - this translates to strong mothering ability in his daughters. A bonus is that Explosion's pedigree is very powerful too, containing several ennobled and fabulous show goats.
"Runner" and "Decision" are junior bucks that have been selected for grow out and offspring evaluations.
Our current Nubian buck is still a junior but we are so excited to see what he does for us. He is a Freedom Fighter son from a fabulous huge doe we affectionately call LuLu. His name is Wholesome Hill Lighthouse.
