Reservations are on a first come basis and deposit is $150 for first goat and $75 for each additional goat reserved. This allows us to proceed with ruminant biosecurity screening. Deposit must be received within 3 business days to hold your chosen goat(s). We do take debit and credit cards for an additional 5% processing fee.
All prices below include ruminant biosecurity screening though WADDL for Johnes, CAE, CL & Brucelosis on January 6th (results available January 10th). Junior bucks come with a complimentary wether if available).
We price our youngstock based on the quality of their sire and dam taking several factors into consideration including whether or not sire/dam have LA/DHIR data, years of contribution to our herd and level of production, proven offspring, AR status, SG status. In general, these are our prices:
$400 — Base Price for Junior Does (typically doelings from first fresheners are offered at this price) based on their Dam/Sire
- $100 — AR (milk star earned) and/or +* sire
- $100 — Elite recognition
- $100 — LA90 and higher
- $100 — SG designation for sire and/or dam
- $50 to $100 — 305day lactation 800# and higher
- $50 to $100 — proven daughters (AR, Elite, SG, LA90 and higher, 800# + 305d production)
Senior does are primarily offered because production is 650# or less based on a 305d lactation. As a production herd with a limit on how many does we are able to sustainably milk (24 to 28), our decision to keep or let go one of our milking does is based solely on this. They are sold at the base price of $400 if production is under 650#. Typically the offered senior does are between 3 to 5 years of age.
Reserved goats must be picked up and paid for in full between January 11th – 14th or will be subject to board of $5/day thereafter. Delivery within 4 hours of our farm can be privately arranged for an additional fee.
Listings for the “12 Goats of Christmas” include reference dam & sire information complete with DHI Milk Test and ADGA LA data where available.
PHOTO NOTE: We recognize that our photos are not the quality that they should be to allow for visual evaluation of conformation. We have not concentrated on this in the past as a farm focused primarily on our commercial dairy/creamery and have relied instead on DHIR/LA annual data. We sincerely apologize for the lack of visual information — it is our goal to provide higher quality informative photos of our senior does and bucks in Summer 2020. In the meantime, please ask us as many questions as you like and we encourage you to come visit the farm and see the offered “12 Goats of Christmas” and their sires/dams in person 🙂
DHIR/LA NOTE: Our herd was on DHIR and participated in Linear Appraisal from 2005 – 2010 and restarted in 2017 – some does listed are not recognized because of the gap in DHIR testing/LA – Also, due to a 2018 LA data entry error with ADGA/CDBC, does who may have qualified in 2018 do not reflect pending SG qualification — estimated ADGA correction of records 2/2020
