Welcome to Rovey Farms! Home of Grande Ronde Nubians!
Thank you so much for your interest in our herd! This operation is family owned and managed by Byron and Stephanie Rovey and 5 young sons Collin, Tanner, Parker, Declan and Oliver.
Our farm is a production agriculture operation specializing in alfalfa, peppermint, sugar beets, sunflower seeds, canola, peas, wheat, angus cattle.. and of course some beautiful dairy goats!!
The herd began in Illinois as a 4-H project for Stephanie and after moving out west in 2004 has come to our permanent home in Northeast Oregon. Many of the bloodlines originate from the midwest with influence from western herds within the last 5 years. Please note that any animals with the herdname "Autumn Glory" are from the original family herd still existing in central Illinois.
As a rule kids at Grande Ronde Nubians are removed from their dams at birth and hand raised on a strict CAE/CL prevention program. There will be a select number of older brood does and permanent CH does allowed to raise a kid in 2014. All presold kids will be separated and fed pasteurized milk, as well as all intended show kids and show dams. The herd is tested annually for CAE and CL and is 100% Negative.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions!
