Passionate about goats

Ursula Raemy has a heart full of love for her 120 adorable young goats. She shares her enthusiasm with all her visitors.

When it’s time for their bottle of milk, every new-born goat takes its turn in Ursula Raemy’s arms. They will not be able to drink by themselves until they are around two weeks old. Under Ursula’s guidance, visitors too can give a bottle to a kid. “Females learn more quickly to drink by themselves, but they call for their bottle more often and more loudly.” Ursula and Lienhard Raemy know the personality and the individual characteristics of the fleece of each of their animals. The goats are intelligent, curious and playful, but can also sometimes be capricious and aggressive. The herd has its own hierarchy, and each goat knows her place.

The two rams know their jobs. One looks after the mature females, ready to breed again; the other takes care of the young and inexperienced. From April on, they share the flock day and night, with every opportunity for reproduction. The older females look after the younger ones, while Ursula tends to the pregnancies – up to 100 a year. It is joyful work, even if sometimes heart-rending. The goats grow large over the summer, and give birth in late September. With the coming of the new generation, milk production is at its height.

The kids are a blessing for the Raemy family breeders in Schwarzsee. They guarantee that the farm is sustainable. The sale of milk and cheese from the farm are an essential source of income, while the animals are their owners’ pride and joy. “We are delighted to share our happiness with visitors of all ages. The kids love the attention and the cuddles, and give back a hundredfold.”
