We will be consigning goats to the Midwest Rumble - Round II on April 18th , 2015 at Washington, Iowa.  It will be a great day as it is Cathy's birthday so maybe a birthday goat will be coming home to Trickman Boer Goats from the sale!

Recap of 2014

Finally we have a red genetic buck on the farm again.  We purchased this buck from Randall Barker we can't wait to see what his genetics will do in our herd!

We decided before the Iowa State Fair August 2013 to take the plunge and purchase a new goat trailer.  After pricing trailers for 3 or 4 years we felt it was time to get it done; so we sold our Southern Classic Low Profile trailer the week before going to the State Fair.  It was kind of strange to load the goats and tack in the trailer, unload everything at the fair and hand the title over to our friend Pat and Shelly Pitlick.  Our friend James Shepard loaded our goats and tack in his trailer for the trip home.  In September we borrowed a trailer from friends Marsha and Erin Patterson in order to attend the IMGA shows at Indianola.  Finally, October 23 we received the call our new trailer could be picked up at Cresco, Iowa home to Alum Line Trailers.  The trip to get the trailer was 3 hours there and 3 hours back; we had side winds and headwinds pretty much all the way home; our new streamline 6 foot tall 21 foot long trailer traveled with ease through it all.  The last test for the trailer was a 3 mile trek home on a dusty gravel road.  The sealed backend of the trailer kept all of the dust and crud from entering the trailer!  So now we can't wait to take it to either a sale, private farm or show with goats in tow!




 As the show season starts to draw to a close; we would like to send CONGRATS out to a few families who purchased goats from us. 


This Fall of 2012 doe kid proved to be a good choice for Zeke as she was named Reserve Grand Champion Breeding doe at the Iowa State Fair FFA show.  She also won her class followed by being named Reserve Champion Fullbood Doe Kid which led into being named Reserve Grand Champion Fullblood Doe at the 2013 IMGA Day 2 show.  The IMGA show had over 200 animals exhibit each day of the 2 day weekend.

More winning for Miss Kitty and Kaylie
Kaylie F and TBG Capt's Miss Kitty

Kaylie F has had a fantastic year with Miss Kitty.  She has been in the running for winning her class or has won her class almost every show they attended.  This is just one of the days Miss Kitty did well --- Miss Kitty won Grand Champion Breeding Doe at the 2013 Warren County Fair. 

More winning for Miss Kitty and Kaylie

Miss Kitty was also named Champion Yearling Division Fullblood doe Day 2 at the IMGA shows plus was named Best Iowa Bred Born and Raised Fullbood Doe both Day 1 and Day 2 at the IMGA shows (Miss Kitty won this title in 2012 as well on Day 1 of the IMGA Show).

In 2013 we were sold out of show wethers by April 1... please start checking our website in January to see what we have to offer in 2014.  We will have a limited number of wethers to sell and will take reservations with deposits prior to weaning starting January 2014.

We had an amazing year showing in 2011.  First about 2 weeks before the Tall Corn Sale in April Rick had emergency surgery on his foot.  Rick was not allowed to put any weight on his foot for over 90 days - thus the show season was left up to Cathy and Stephanie.  We started our showing at Adel with just two wethers that belonged to Stephanie. These two wethers Parkour and Toad put a lot of miles on their resume' this past Summer.  It was quite interesting to see them show: Parkour was a wether you either really liked or you didn't... if the judge really  liked him he always placed in the money (top 5 of the class - only 3 times of the 9 times he was in the show ring Parker stood in back of the class).  At Minne-Goat-a Parkour won his class, at IMGA he placed 2nd and at the Tall Corn Jackpot Show he placed 4th!  Toad was the sleeper -- I think he always placed in the top 5 --- many times he was 3rd and at the Tall Corn Jackpot he was 5th!  Our does Lady Marvel, FHF Z0009, FHF Z377, Patchwork and Firefly does had a pretty good year as well.  We ended up with many 1st, 2nd and 3rds from these girls.  We even had a Division Champion, three Division Reserve Champions and Reserve Grand Champion Fullblood Doe!  Our buck Captain America only showed in two shows this year as we were using him in the breeding pen most of the Spring and Summer but he did us very proud by winning his class and being named Champion Yearling Buck one day and Reserve Champion Yearling Buck the second day.  To say the least we were  very happy with our show season and are already looking at our young does to see who we might show next year!
