Our adult Purebred Sable dairy goats are double registered with the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA) and the
American Goat Society (AGS). Kids will be registered with one registry (typically ADGA) or be sold with application
for registration. We do not sell any goats for pets. We only sell working goats for dairy, breeding stock
and/or meat . Once you buy the goat, it is your choice how you raise it.
We have participated in ADGA linear appraisal since 1987 and were last appraised in May 2017. We are not on
DHI so we do try to participate in yearly one-day official ADGA milk tests if available. We attend about 5-7 shows a
year. Our herd is tested periodically for TB, brucellosis, and CAE. Our January 2017 herd tests for
CAE (Biotracking) on all 16 goats were negative. The January 2017 brucellosis tests on the entire herd
(16) were negative. TB tests done January 2016 were negative on the whole herd (17). The whole herd
was tested for CL in May 2005 and all were negative; now we randomly test for CL. We have done random Johne's
testing and they were negative. Kids are raised on CAE negative does or bottle raised as needed. We do
not pasteurize colostrum or milk as the herd is healthy and remains negative for CAE. If you are preordering kids, please
advise of your preference.
A $100 deposit will reserve the breeding of your choice with the balance due at the time of pickup at the farm. Your
deposit will be refunded or transferred to another kid if the desired kid is not born, does not come up to our standards or
if the animal is needed for herd replacement. Prices quoted are for animals picked up at the farm by 8 weeks after
birth. Additional charges including board, shipping crates, health certificate, shipping costs, vet testing, etc are
the buyer's responsibility.
All animals are guaranteed healthy and free of disqualifying defaults when they leave our farm. Since we can not
control any stress that may occur as a result of shipping, environment or management once the animal leaves our
farm, we can not offer further quarantees.
Frequently milkers, bucks and older kids are for sale because we must remain at a manageable herd size. Check the
"Goats for Sale" page to see what may be of interest to you.
We offer a number of breeding options. If you are interested in purchasing semen, please see the "Semen for

boarding available on the farm.
