Breeder of Kalahari Red registered Fullblood and Commercial bucks and does, nothing else nothing more.
With over 7 years of breeding bloodlines of orginal genetics imported into Australia from South Africa from Kalahari Red breeders including Isis Reds & Kurrajong.
Stud Principal Alison Langley purchased Seven Oaks farm 8 years ago as a white dorper sheep commercial enterprise with a handful of commercial Kalahari Red does and a fullblood Kalahari Red buck.
As the journey progressed with drought and a need for resilient stock, she made the move to focus on breeding up the Kalahari Red numbers on the farm and purchased fullblood stock from within Australia and turned Seven Oaks Kalahari Reds what it is today.
Stud focus is on breeding quality Kalahari Red fullblood stud bucks and does as well as running a commercial Kalahari Red herd of goats all sired by our fullblood Kalahari Red bucks and 3rd and 4th cross Kalahari Red does.
Numbers on farm are growing and Seven Oaks will run around 500 breeding does in the near future with a focus on the international export markets.
We believe in the future of the Kalahari Red goat and are passionate to watch this breed perform and excel consistently in the harsh Australian environment.
Seven Oaks Kalahari Reds places the upmost importance on breeding for meat and muscle growth, while maintaining maximum milk production and fertility for quality does. All fullblood kids are DNA parental tested for verification of fullblood Kalahari Red genetics.
Our herd is raised on natural farming principles with no grain or pellet supplements given. Feed is a combination of ryegrass, vetch, capeweed, wireweed, corksscrew and sourgrass.
The herd is hardened and experienced at searching for their dinner and are accustomed to walking for hectares before they reach a dam making them naturally build up muscle in the hindquarters and chest. Stock are vaccinated with Glanvac 6 in 1 at birth.
The farm situated in Kooreh, Victoria, Australia on 170 acres has an annual rainfall of 600mm, 6 rain fed dams and extreme temperatures of -6 in winter and 48 degrees in summer which is no problem for this tough and resilient goat.
