On this page, I'll post photos from Canyon Goat Company - the goats, the farm, and maybe Richard and me.
Here, too, I'll mention events and happenings that may be of interest.

kidding stalls at Canyon Goat Company

We love our new kidding stalls. The panels and gates click together easily. They were manufactured at Braefiddich Farm in Republic, Missouri.

This is Stinger, our breeder buck purchased July 1, 2014. His first kids were born in December, 2014.

June 2014
We were proud to host a farm tour for a wonderful group of FFA members from across Missouri.


This elite group is with the HYMAX Academy (Helping Youth Maximize their Agriculture eXperience). These FFA members, during their weekend conference at the Lake of the Ozarks, prepare for future leadership roles, explore agricultural careers, and learn how to advocate for the agriculture industry.


Heading to Arkansas, this young buckling has a future as a show goat and a breeder buck on the Stapleton Farm.
Update: August 9, 2014 this five-month-old buckling, shown by Seth Stapleton, won Grand Champion Sire at the show in Arkansas.

Super Square, our breeder Boer buck at canyon Goat company, Inc.
Spring 2013 news:
This is our newly-purchased breeder buck, Super Square from Indiana's 2M Boer Goats / Newton Farm.
His most recent show win was at the Dixie National Livestock Show and Rodeo.
Look how long and well-muscled he is. Check out the wide chest. Super Square is just six months old.
His 90-day weaning weight was 83 pounds, which equates to a .82 pound daily weight gain. Incredible!

Super Square's parents:

Our Super Square, along with his parents and grandparents, exemplifies the Boer breed standards of a long, well-muscled body, and broad rump and chest. These standards, evolved during the development of this breed over the past 70 years in South Africa,. have developed with the explicit objectives of improving the breed for economic production. The superior genetics Super Square brings to Canyon Goat Company and our customers is exciting!

Arriving in a March snowstorm, Super Square is now at home at our Canyon Goat Company in Missouri.

Although his show career may not be over, Super Square is now a working goat and we look forward to his progeny.

  Our pet goat, Pocket on the welcome mat at Canyon Goat Company
Goats make fine pets. This is our Pocket. Weighing a mere two pounds at birth, she fit in a pocket, thus her name.

Itty-bitty Pocket is looking for trouble.

Outside chores included taking the laundry off the clothesline.
Pocket helped.

One day, we thought it would be clever if Pocket would drink her milk from a bowl rather than her bottle.
This didn't last long!
