Devonshire Dairy Goats is pleased to present their 2017 ADGA Spotlight Sale consignment: Devonshire IJR Dance a Jig. We think you too might want to “Dance A Jig” at the chance to add these genetics to your herd.
Dancer’s pedigree contains animals that have placed consistently high in the show ring and in the milk bucket. Multiple CH/SGCH animals with “E” mammary scores and Top Ten DHI placings. Her dam, CH Devonshire CD Irish Jig, milked 2453 lbs with 3.8% butterfat in her first 305-day lactation (extending that lactation to 3277 lbs and 4.3% BF at 435 days in milk). Irish Jig placed 3xGCH, 2xBOB, and 2xBUOB in 2016 as a 2-yr old first freshener. Irish Jig’s sire, D’Taveron MTD Dante, was sired by SCGH Cream of Kansas Time Delay, a son of the 2006 ADGA National Champion SGCH Nu-Life Delight (9-01 LA90 VEEE). Dante’s littermate sister, 11*M GCH D’Taveron MTD Deirdre, milked 2256 lbs with 4.6% BF in her first 305-day lactation peaking at 9.3 lbs/day. Dante and Deirdre’s dam, 10*M SGCH D’Taveron HRQ Maia (02-11 LA 89 VEVE with a score of 40 in fore-udder and 46 in rear-udder), is also the dam to Dancer’s sire, *B Devonshire MRP Ruffian (from an AI breeding to ++B SG Destiny Farm Rapscallion). And we line-bred on Maia with good reason. As a milker, Maia has placed 9xBOB and 9xBUOB plus 1 Best in Show and Best Udder in Show win! But not only is she nice to look at, Maia can also put the milk in the bucket. She was on the Top Ten DHI list for 3 consecutive years (2013-2015) and in 2013 placed Top Ten in all 3 categories including #1 in production (3570 lbs in 305-day), #3 in Butterfat (112 lbs), and #2 in Protein (91 lbs). Maia has a lifetime milk of 12860 lbs in 1418 days (averaging 9 lbs/day). Maia is the daughter of 9*M SGCH Devonshire Heart of the Riot (2010 ADGA National Best Udder & also a Top Ten milker) and *B Devonshire RH Remote Quasar (son of 2004 ADGA Reserve National Champion & Reserve Udder 2*M SGCH FDF Pleasant Field Remote (05-02 FS90 VEEE) and grandson of 3x ADGA National Champion & National Best Udder 7*M GCH Willow Run Sir Will
Hassida (07-02 FS92 VEEE).
