Kidding Season 2016


2016 Nigerian Dwarf Kids


2016 kids are sold



Herd Health

We strive to keep our small herd of purebred Nigerian Dwarf goats happy & healthy. In August 2012 and again in June 2015, the herd tested negative for CAE, CL, Johnnes, Brucellosis, and TB, blood samples obtained and submitted by our veterinarian/lab tested by Cornell University (results available upon request).  We have purchased goats only from healthy, well-managed herds to ensure that the does, bucks, and their offspring remain healthy and disease-free.  We do not offer stud service or boarding that would involve other goats coming onto our property.


What's Included in the Sale


We want to ensure that each kid has the best possible start in life.  Each kid will receive probiotics, vitamin & mineral supplements, CDT vaccination, and dewormed while under our care.  Samples of grain and hay will be provided at pickup.  Kids will be weaned & eating/drinking on their own prior to release (at 8-12 wks).  Hooves will be trimmed.  I can demonstrate hoof trimming at pickup if requested.  Each doeling and buckling comes with their own completed & signed application for AGS registration (if applicable) and will receive a tattoo in each ear for registration & identification purposes.  All goats will receive beneficial probiotics prior to leaving to aid with the stresses associated with travel.  No animal will be sold unless we feel they are in optimum health.  We welcome any updates & photo's of the kids in their new loving homes!  

Please see our Sales Policy Page for additional information
