Maple Wind Caprines is located in rural northwest Missouri near the tiny town of Dawn–“God’s country” as we call it here. The winters can be brutal, the summers hot and humid, but the gorgeous springs and autumns make up for the other two seasons.

Our animals are consistent in style, moderate in size and are conformationally sound. Because we keep a small herd, we are able to give each animal individualized attention and are able to tailor their care according to their needs. Our goal is to breed productive, elegant, stylish, conformationally-correct animals that do well in the show ring as well as in the milk parlor. Our focus is on breeding stylish French Alpines that will contribute positively to the breed for generations to come–striving to breed the ultimate animal of moderate size that has the “will to milk and the strength to sustain it.”

In 2012, Elizabeth added two Saanens to our herd, affectionately known as her “white chicks.” Elizabeth also delved into the world of American Alpines with the purchase of the 2014 Colorama Sale kid Chateau Briant’s Brienne.

We have participated in ADGA linear appraisal in 2011, 2012 and 2015, and participated in DHIR in 2016 as well. Our animals are shown in open shows as well as 4-H and FFA shows across the midwest.

We thank you for your interest in our small herd. Please feel free to contact us with any questions you may have–we’re always glad to talk!
