Having always been interested in Diary breeds i was pretty excited when a fellow farmer friend told me about Dave, who had a couple of Saanen’s which he bought from the SEDC. It was claimed that the manager had offered him these Saanen’s when they were ‘accidentally loaded’ on a shipment from Australia.

Sanaan Buck? You either must be joking or have too much water in between your ears...

I have seen a couple of Saanen’s in my life but have never seen one looking remotely like this. This is what a REAL Saanen looks like…

Anyways i had a good chuckle and shake of the head later. But it is in these type of situations where Australia gets a bad name, not that it was her fault. More like some greedy ass who took advantage of an ignorant farmer. Typical.

    Hello there,

    I think your best bet is South Australia. You might be lucky if you look through some search engines and find some farmers willing to let you have a couple of younger animals.

    If you don’t have any luck i might be able to put the word out for you down under.

    Cheers and Good Luck!
