Goat Breeding and Sales

Goats are extremely social animals.  It is highly recommended that you either purchase two  or have a companion animal, such as a horse or donkey, for your goat.  If a goat is alone, they can fall into a deep depression.  Some will even die.

We will not sell a single to anyone who doesn’t have a companion animal in place. If you want a doe, but not the hassle of a buck, and that’s all we have available, we can wether it for you and offer a package deal.  Wethers make very good pets without a lot of the obnoxious buck in rut behaviors

Our goats are ADGA registered and tattooed.  All kids require a $50 non-refundable deposit.  No deposits are taken before the kid is on the ground.  Unfortunately, things happen.  We will put your name on a waiting list at the beginning of the kidding season and contact you after a successful birth.

You can reserve your kid with a deposit at any time.  We will not hold any kid without a deposit. Reserved animals must be picked up within one week of weaning date or a $2.00 a day boarding fee will be charged. If you do not pick up your kid within 30 days without making prior arrangements, we will assume you don’t want it and place it up for sale again.

If you’d like a wether, please inform us before the buck is 8 weeks of age.  If you’d like a kid who is not disbudded, pleased contact us immediately.  Disbuddings are done as soon as we can.

 

Our herd is tested yearly and is disease-free.

 

We don’t know what happened with these two.  Their dam is a first freshener, so we won’t know if this is normal for her until she is bred again.  We use Cocci prevention and found no evidence of it (Cocci can stunt growth).  Whatever the cause, these twins — despite having full-sized parents — are tiny.   We feel they would do best in a herd composed of mini breeds, or you can have Book altered (sterilized) and have them as pets.  Both were registered with the ADGA before we realized they were going to stay small.

    • Hi Melissa!

      Poor Barcy. People ask questions, but she hasn’t been claimed yet. I have a feeling she may end up staying with us until she kids. The prices will vary depending on how they’ll show, but we won’t know that until they hit the ground.

      The Oberhasli does will be $200-300, bucks $175-250 and wethers will be $100-150 – that’s if we’re here. I have been trying to move them to our land in the south, but things keep happening. I have a feeling I may not be able to do it until the Fall. 🙂
