    What kind of prices are you guys seeing for breeding does in your area ?

    seems like there 150 to 200 in my area, I only have 24 right now and I have alot of feed in the barn and I'm getting ready to cut again and nothing to do with it all.

    I watch craigslist to see what's going on there, and it seems the going price for unregistered does is $125-175, and registered does I've noticed hasn't been much more.

    I got my pygmy does between 45 and 60 dollars. I spent 60 dollars for my buck , but I bought him at a flea market. The larger does go for 80 to 150 dollars. Registered stock goes for a little more. From talking to people at the auction. They say the price goes down in the fall because people do not want feed them over winter.

    I saw a boar buck (about 300 lbs) go for about 175 dollars at the local auction here in town. The auction here at the local stockyard does not even mention papers. The goat auction in Boaz Alabama does though. I had to work the Saturday my wife went...so I am not sure what the registered goats went for...she told me they were a little more expensive.

    You are right ...the dairy breeds here ....are less than the boers.....maybe put an add in craigslist and ask for the type of goat you are looking for....how many and price range...... you may get some bites ..... :)

    This year....... we are sold out of bucks... :( ....but... if you are still looking... by say feb/march 2010....we should have the kids hitting the ground..... just let me know... :wink: :thumb:
