News at Chenango Hills
ADGA has just confirmed--Goddess is the new All time breed record holder for Nigerian Dwarfs for butterfat in a single lactation.
We were equally proud to see Chenango-Hills Phoebe make AGS Top Ten for protein as a yearling, following her mother Gabriella in achieving Top Ten status.
In 2012, Chenango-Hills IP Goddess was AGS Breed Leader, 1st in milk, fat, and protein, with 1431 lbs of milk, 106 lbs fat, and 65 lbs protein. Chenango-Hills Bouncey Trixie finished 5th in milk and tied for 3rd in protein, with 1223 lbs of milk, and 54 lbs protein.
GCH Chenango-Hills Goddess led the nation for ADGA registered Nigerians in all three; milk, butterfat and protein on DHIA test in results released in 2013, as she did in 2010 when Chenango-Hills Unique, was close behind, placing fourth in milk and second in butterfat and protein.
Four CHENANGO-HILLS does made the Top Ten for AGS in the results released in 2011; taking 4 of the top 5 spots (including 1st) in both fat and protein. They also all placed in the ADGA Top Ten for 2011.
In 2012, Goddess led the nation in DHIA for AGS in all 3 categories, while Trixie was 5th in milk and 3rd in protein.
