Named for the Roman river god, we are very excited to retain Volturnus to the Curbstone Valley junior buck pen this season. 

His dam, Minerva, has proven herself to be an excellent all-around doe. Minnie shows well in the ring, she appraises well, and she's an excellent producer, milking almost 1100 lbs last season. However, not that it's a bad thing, but Minnie had quadruplet does last year, thwarting our intent to retain a buck from her. This year, though, she made up for it, by providing us with three bucklings to choose from, sired by Dill's RD Grand Illusion.

Volt preserves much of what we love about Minerva in his overall general appearance, length of body, and angularity, but has a little more substance, and strength, courtesy of his sire, but not excessively so. Illusion has some impressive udder genetics throughout his pedigree, and coupled with Minerva's own udder conformation, and capacity, we're hopeful that Volt will prove to be a dependable strong udder buck in our herd.
