Ray Stauffer and his husband James

Welcome to Elmwood Acres!
My name is Ray Stauffer. I live just outside the Kansas City area with my husband James, our 2 huskies, and our little herd of Nigerians. I am passionate about dairy goats and love to share them with the world.

Elmwood Acres started on July 4th 2003 when I purchased my first goat, an American Alpine named Mamm-Key Mango's Tangie. I joined a 4-H club later that year that focused on Dairy Goats in order to learn more about these wonderful animals. The first time I attended the county fair I caught the “show bug” and I fear I may never recover! I attended my first ADGA sanctioned show in 2005 when I participated in the Colorado State Fair. I had a wonderful time and was warmly welcomed by all the breeders there. Thus began my showing journey.

In 2008 I participated in LA for the first time. At that session the appraiser took time to walk me through the process, and used Tangie to show me how all the scores were determined. Imagine my surprise when he announced that her final score was 92 EEEE, at nine years old! Later that day two of Tangie's daughters went 89 and 90. I was beyond happy that I would get scores this high at my very first appraisal!

On December 29th 2010 I lost my special friend Tangie. She was my very first goat and I will miss her dearly. As her memorial I have written a Story about her many years with me.
