Nigerian Dwarf Kidding Schedule

                                 Goats for Sale!!!

                
    GENERAL SALES INFORMATION:
    At Timberwood Farm, all of our Nigerian Dwarf breeding stock is AGS (American Goat
    Society) registered and they are also eligible for NDGA (Nigerian Dwarf Goat Association)
    registration.

    We tested our whole herd annually for CAE, Brucellosis, and TB.  We used to test for
    Johnes and CL, but the tests are very inaccurate in goats so we stopped testing in 2008.  
    During the time frame we were testing, our herd tested negative for CL and Johnes.  To
    date, we have never had a contagious abscess in our herd, and none of our goats have
    ever been symptomatic for Johnes.  The entire herd is currently Certified Brucellosis and
    TB free.  In addition, all our goats have tested negative for CAE.  Our last testing date was
    February 11, 2013.

    Although we do breed for milk production as well as conformation, our kids are dam fed
    until they are weaned at 8-10 weeks of age.  Keeping the kids with their dams helps them
    to learn acceptable herd behavior, provides us with an opportunity to determine which
    does are good mothers, and generally ensures happy and healthy goats.  All kids are
    handled daily and provided with lots of love and attention to ensure friendly, happy kids.

    Believing that  having someone available to answer questions and provide support helps
    ensure the continued well being of our goats, we are always available to buyers to answer
    questions, provide information, and assist in whatever way we can.  Since the health of
    our goats is our primary concern, we reserve the right to refuse the sale of a goat to
    anyone who cannot provide the following basic requirements:

  • Quality feed (hay, minerals, grain when required)
  • Fresh water
  • Clean, dry shelter
  • Secure fencing
  • Veterinarian services
  • Routine care (vaccinations, worming, hoof trimming)

    PRICING:
    Prices for our registered breeding quality animals usually range from about $350 to $600.
    All registrable goats will be tattooed.  Since we want to keep our herd to a manageable
    size, any bucklings that are not being retained, or have not been reserved, by the time they
    are two months old  will be neutered and sold as pet wethers (neutered bucks). Given that
    the Nigerian Dwarfs goats often have multiple births, there is a good chance that we will
    have some pet wethers available each year. Pet wethers are $75.00. Depending on
    availability, a pet wether may be offered at no charge as a companion animal with the
    purchase of a registered doe or buck. Discounts will also be given children participating
    in 4H..

    RESERVATIONS:
    If you would like to reserve a kid from a particular breeding, please let us know and you
    will be notified as soon as the kids are born.  We don't require a deposit at the time of
    reservation, but once the reserved kid has been born and the buyer has decided to go
    ahead with the purchase, then we will ask for half the purchase price as a deposit until
    pick-up or shipping arrangements can be made. The balance will be due prior to shipping
    or at the time of pick-up.
