B's Barn Farm ( BBF ) is located in Burkesville, Cumberland County, Kentucky, in the south central region of the State. We are 12 miles from the Tennessee state line. We are located about 2 1/2 hours from Louisville or Lexington, Kentucky or from Nashville and Knoxville, Tennessee. BBF has been breeding Myotonic goats since 1997, when we first fell in love with this breed. We raise only Myotonic's and we do not crossbreed . We are members of the Kentucky Goat Producers Assoc. (K.G.P.A), Myotonic Goat Registry (MGR)http://www.myotonicgoatregistry.net/ , and the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy (ALBC). All of B's Barn breeding stock is registered with the MGR . We believe that in registering we are providing a tracking system to the genetics of that goat. Because the numbers of the Myotonic/Fainter are considered "Threatened" by the American Livestock Breeds Conservancy, we feel, that by registering we help provide needed information on this breed.
iN 2011, We sold down our herd and kept kids and a few older does. In 2012, we purchased bucks and bought back many of our own does. All of these purchases either came from tested herds or were tested and isolated until test results came back. All those tested came back negative.
On 04/23/2011 our herd, consisting of yearling or older, tested negative for Johnes and Caseous Lymphadenitis ( CL). On 03/24/2010 herd was tested by our vet for Brucellosis, CAE and Johnes. We are once again negative for these diseases. In 2006, 2008 we have also tested neg. for Johnes, CAE and Caseous Lymphadenitis ( CL). We just completed our testing on 10/2013 for Johnes and CAE and are negative once again.
