4th gen buckling $350 - Lorenzo *B
This little buckling comes from excellent milking lines. He is the last kid we will have out of Freddy as we sold Freddy last fall (too closely related to the rest of the herd). Lorenzo has very nice conformation with width and depth and strength of bone. He has tons of width between his hocks. He had good breed character as you can see from his newborn pictures, but he was born in below zero weather and his ears froze, so he lost the tips of them and now the half ears stick straight out!
Please contact us if you are interested in any of the above animals.
We usually sell out of Miniature Nubian doelings and sometimes bucklings before they are born so the best way to be sure of getting a mini dairy goat from us is to check out the breeding schedule page and place a deposit. If we do have any available after all deposits are filled, they will be listed here.
Mini Nubian kids are sold in order of deposit received. A $50 deposit is required to reserve a kid. The deposit holds your place on my list of people who are looking for kids. I ask that you specify some things that you are looking for in your goat and what purpose he/she will serve. If we do not have a kid of the right sex or if we don't have a kid that meets your criteria, your money will be refunded or you can transfer your deposit to a kid from the next year.
Please fill out the form on the MiniNubian breeding schedule page or click here to email me if you are interested in reserving a kid. Deposits are taken via 'regular' mail. We reserve the right to retain any kids born on our farm.
A word on the pricing of the mature milkers... I figured the cost of raising a doe from 8 weeks to kidding age (either 1 or 2 years) and it is easily $350. When purchasing an adult milker, you are getting the added benefit of having that first freshening behind them - they have the risk of the first birth behind them. Plus, she has been trained to the milkstand, you KNOW how she milks and what her udder is like (a kid is always a gamble), AND you will be getting milk immediately. With good quality milk at easily $10/gallon, the doe will be paying for herself quickly. So, that is the rationle behind the prices and why they are not as high as they seem. I used to have a terrible time pricing milkers until I did the math to figure out what we have in them and what they are worth. I finally settled on approximately doubling the price that I sell their kids for.
