on goats from that day on. She has had many breeds through the years, but fell in love with the Nigerians and built
her herd from her original first 4 Nigerians. Lauen's youth activities included 4-H, the
Northland Pet Goat Club, MDGA, FFA, Saddle Club trail rides, county fairs and state fairs. Lauren also
