Rob Schill was born and raised on a mixed farm near Balcarres. Agriculture has always been a big part of his life. He raised cattle up until 2009 and was out of the livestock industry for a number of years other than having a small herd of pleasure horses and a draft team. Rob and his wife got back into livestock in 2016 with a small herd of Boer cross goats. They have spent the past couple of years building their herd to 200 head of commercial goats and a small purebred herd of Boer goats. Focusing on good maternal traits and long thick bodied bucks to produce good finishing carcasses.
Rob has worked off the ranch for the past 21 years until just recently when he started working fulltime in his welding business. He has strong desire to do the best he can at what ever he is working on. Whether that is welding for a customer or representing the goat industry as President of the SGBA in its daily activities.
Rob has a strong passion for the goat industry and sees it growing and developing well into the future. Changes are good for the growth of goat industry and we can't rely on the "its always been this way mentality". We need to push the envelope and change to grow!!
Lisa Schill is a Registered Nurse who grew up in Nova Scotia and moved to Saskatchewan 7 years ago. Working full time and being involved with the Saskatchewan Registered Nurses Association and the Saskatchewan Union of Nurses definitely keeps her busy. Saskatchewan is where she met her husband and started raising goats as a family business about 2 years ago. The herd, which is primarily Boer goats with some dairy cross influence, continues to expand and multiply. She is always interested in continuing to learn and how to give back to the industry.
Hi there from Swift Current! My name is Glenda Allan, most folks around here know me as Grammazoo! I love sharing my love of animals with others…EdZOOcation is important to me.
We started our goat herd in 2017 of Registered Nigerian Dwarfs. They are a great fit with our registered miniature zebus. The goats are so friendly and happy, everyone loves to go and visit with the goats, old folks and young ones! Doesn’t matter if its the babies or the adults, their happy greetings, brighten any day!! Our herd name is Getcher Ziege …or get your goat. Our website is grammazooexotics.com. We also have a Facebook page, grammazooexotics and a page for Discover the Farm.
This program, is run with the Swift Current Ag and Ex, on which I also sit as a board member, it is called Discover the Farm. It is the last week in April. School students are invited to Thursday and Friday of the program…this includes animal edZOOcation and also farm safety. Promoting where our food comes from, is also on the agenda. Saturday is Sale Day and a market style sale, where breeders and buyers can get together.
We farm just outside of Swift Current and are lucky to have 8 grandkids that love animals just as much as we do.
Looking forward to promoting the Saskatchewan Goat Breeders Association in all I do, here in the area, as I usually have a critter or a grand baby in my arms!!
