Mary Joe Davis poses for a portrait with Jukebox on Wednesday in Millville. Jukebox was named the 2022 Top Winning Mini Silky of the Year.

Cache Kids of Millville, a family-owned farm that concentrates on breeding and raising miniature silky fainting goats, is now home to the nation’s Silky of the Year.

The goat, Jukebox, was trained by Millville resident Mary Jo Davis. This year, Jukebox took the prize home for the Top Winning Mini Silky of the Year, as he won “best in show” at 14 shows across the country — more than any other competing silky goat.

According to the Miniature Silky Fainting Goat Association, at these shows the goats are judged based on a visual standard. Mini silkys, according to the association’s website, are “all about the look.”
