For breeders dedicated to preserving the Tepper line. I will have a "pay it forward" system in 2024 and 2025 kidding season. Where I will be offering Tepper kids at an extreme discount. It is my intention to get Tepper line goats into the hands of breeders with long term goals with this line.

Preserving lines within any breed can be important as it projects genetic diversity within that breed. With the San Clemente Island goat, many lines have started deteriorating over time. To learn more about why saving and working on bloodlines/lines is important read this article titled "Why Bloodlines?"

You can also do in depth reading in a book titled "Managing Breeds For A Secure Future". This book was written collaborative by employees and volunteers for The Livestock Conservancy organization.
