About Our Herd
Before the dawn breaks in beautiful Pleasant Valley, Maryland, Jeremiah Potter, a second generation Caprikorn Farmer, following in the footsteps of his father, Randy, is gearing up to milk the heaviest milking herd in the United States.
What’s different about Caprikorn Saanens? They milk more than other dairy goats. This is because for our foundation stock we used mega milkers only and the sons of mega milkers. Then we spent over 43 years and $100,000 on DHI testing.
We also breed for strong back pasterns and ease of kidding. Most of our goats cross immediately on both sides to Top Ten does.
The Caprikorn kid you order will probably radically out-milk any other kid you ever buy.
We don’t breed for primarily for show, and we only show at a few shows each year. However we have received numerous GCH’s, RGCH’s and Best in Shows. This means that ultra high milk production can sometimes include excellent conformation. But Mega-Milk comes first here!
For the past ten years or so, we have had a whole herd negative CAE test from WSU and we would be happy to send copies of all the lab results.
The kids test CL negative, but not the adults.
Since 1977 we have adhered to a “Full Refund on Return Policy”. You do not need to think of a reason to return your animal for a full refund. See Terms of Sale for complete details.
Unlike most other breeders, Caprikorn Farms does NOT reserve the right to keep kids – you get the kid you reserve even if it turns out to be the best kid of the crop.
We welcome visits (especially at milking time). Please contact us if you would like further details on any of our animals.

his first place win with Matterhorn at the
Homesteaders goat show in July 2000.
Matterhorn was also first place junior
yearling at the Nationals that year.
