June Bug was #2 in Kandi and Elvin‘s quads in 2016 and our first Rafter O doeling. She has good conformation and wide ears that are nice and long.  We love her cute pink nose!  She’s got great milk lines on both sides.  She has freshened nicely with good attachments and large orifices.  She milks out FAST!

In 2019, we retained her daughter, Doodlebug.  June Bug was bred to Levi in Fall 2019 and they gave us triplet doelings in 2020! These “Bug” Girls are phenomenal – check them out…Lady Bug, Love Bug, and Lightning Bug.  In 2021, June Bug had a phenomenal polled buckling, Walker.

June Bug took Best in Show, Best Udder in Show and Grand Champion Senior Mini Nubian Doe at the Hill Country Mini Milkers Fall Frolic Show in Decatur, TX on Nov. 3, 2018!  Way to go June Bug!

June Bug took Best Udder in Show again in Ring 2 at the Hill Country Mini Milkers Texas Two Step on June 2, 2019.

Judges commend June Bug for her great feet and legs, being very strong in the pastern. She also has desirable breed characteristics, having a longer and more bell-shaped ear which rests closer to her head. In body capacity, she has a nice wide chest floor.  In mammary system, June Bug has good extension to the fore udder.

June Bug’s daughter, Doodlebug, cleaned up at the Hill Country Mini Milker Texas Two Step on June 2nd!  She won Grand Champion Junior Doeling in the first ring, and Reserve Grand Champion Junior Doeling in the second ring.
