A Colorful Cross

July 6, 2017

Are all Saanens white? That seemed to be the case until just a month ago. For the past few months, we have crossed Anglo-Nubians with Saanens. We crossed the two breeds because we wanted to see how the next generation's milk tasted; this, however, was not the only change we saw in the next generation . Looking over the kid's pen, we were delighted and shocked to not see a pool of white anymore. Some kids expressed a variety of different colors that ranged from brown to black (and white of course!). Seeing a new variety of colors, we assumed the cross was successful (at least for this generation). It's very satisfying to see a new colorful pen, but the milk's taste is still uncertain. Hopefully, it will be as surprising as how our new kids came out.
