    I dont know which kind of fiber your looking for, however here in Maine you can buy fiber breeds from $25-$150 at any age, some registered (unknown where.) some bred etc.

    I really only know about the Pygora breed. A 'registerable' purebred doe from good bloodlines should start at about $350 and go up from there depending on confirmation, fiber type, coloring, etc.

    If you just want the animal for the fiber and not breeding stock, fiber wethers are usually available for around $100. Again depending on the type of fiber and such. Hand-raised, hand-tamed might be a little more.

    Really in Maine that is crazy, they are some of the best cashmere breeders. I know a lot of people there.

    My does from a Grand Champion line will sell for $300.00 or more, if people by two or more they will go down in price.

    I have people coming from Virginia to purchase goats from me and they are paying the 3.00 and have to transport them.

    Yup, They are usually around $60 for both does and bucks, but I have found goats in the range I posted. and not at auction either.
