2016-2017 BREEDING LISTS UPDATED

Our breeding lists are currently up to date with a few more animals yet to add. We have a creative and conscientious breeding program at Cherry Glen, and are proud of our show-quality herd.  Peruse the lists to see our breeding program. This is a working dairy and no buck kids are kept unless we plan to use them or they are ordered. Kids are hitting the ground now so if you are thinking about adding a buck kid from Cherry Glen act quickly as all buck kids are shipped out every Monday.
