Welcome to the
Black Diamond Ranch
Welcome to the Black Diamond Ranch, centrally located in the beautiful Texas Hill Country. We are currently raising American Boer Goat Association (ABGA) registered Boer Goats, commercial Boer goats, and American Kennel Club (AKC) registered Great Pyrenees Livestock Guard Dogs (LGD). We have registered Boer goats, AKC Great Pyrenees puppies, and commercial goats for sale throughout the year.

We currently have four Great Pyrenees LGD: Preacher, PB (Preacher’s Bride); Possum and Whitey. They were introduced to our goats when they were only puppies and have been with the herd ever since. Our male, Preacher, roams the property at night, while PB stays bedded down with the herd; and we have not lost a single kid to date to predators. UPDATE (October 2, 2013): PB and Possum just had a litter of AKC Great Pyrenees puppies; our next Pyrenees litter will be expected from Whitey and Preacher in beginning December 2013.
The Black Diamond Ranch was established in 2006 where our families first began raising cattle. The first goats on our ranch were given to the Dahlke children by a neighboring ranch, and these bottle babies started the love of goats. Since then, Dahlke children have decided to show goats for the Future Farmers of America (FFA), and during this time our family decided to switch our operation from cattle to goats.
After extensive research we purchased our first Syfan Spanish Goats from the Three Mill Ranch, while also beginning to raise a small Boer herd for showing and breeding. Although we decided to disperse our Spanish goat herd in Spring 2012, we decided to expanding our current Boer goat operation to bring in some top genetics to improve our current bloodlines and future bloodlines.
Our goal with our Boer goats are to produce the most well balanced Boer Goats; superior genetics; provide great bone structure; heavily bodied; and generally disease resistant.
