About Miss Becky's

Butt-n-Down Nubians
Janesville, WI 53545

Breeding for milk and correct confirmation since 1982. I have line bred and even inbred to achieve consistency in specific areas. I have used the best sires we could afford as we slowly improved production and udders, toplines, legs and feet and selected to better one area at a time. I like the large boned, strong, true Nubian characteristics while still breeding to match the ADGA scorecard for show. The Butt-n-Down doe is large, deep bodied, level and long. She can milk for 500 days if you don't need to grow your herd too fast and just want milk. 
 We have not had the opportunity to show much but when we do the does place very well. I have sold several does over the years who have placed at the top of their class. Our does have nicely attached fore and rear udders, peaking in milk at 9# a day on average as second freshening three year olds. 
The bucks also show well.  I have some reserve champion awards from Butt-n-Down bucks as well. The most recent was Butt-n-Down Royal Duke in 2009.  Animals having the Butt-n-Down herd name are American Nubian on paper but probably as pure Nubian as any purebred.  I began in 1981 purchasing 2 fine Nubian grade does and have used Purebred bucks to improve ever since.

 Butt-n-Down Serendipity is a strong milker, producing 1 gal. + a day for the first 3 months of lactation, declining to a steady 7 pounds for the next 4 months.  She was still producing 1/2 gal a day when I began to dry her up at 10 months fresh.
