Have you looked on your local Craigslist to see what other goats are selling for?
kinda, cuz i'm looking for goats to buy as well, but the thing is, most of the goats for sale around here are registered boars and nigerian dwarfs.... there really arent any Alpines for sale and mine dont compare to those, but idk how much less they're worth than those. I've seen a couple Alpine bucks go up for sale in the last few weeks and they were both listed at $200..one was 3 years, one was 6 months, but none of that helps me with my doelings...Have you looked on your local Craigslist to see what other goats are selling for?
Well, any time now. I wnat them to go to good homes, but i'm also looking to add to my herd so it would prolly be best if they were gone before i added. i dont really know what i hope to get for them..... Last year i had one and i sold her for $180 when she was 6 months old. I sold her to a friend.. I had her on craigslist for over 2 months and had several people asking about her but they all never responded when i replied to them. . . . I'm thinking that was prolly too high but maybe not? i really dont know..They're pretty. What do you hope to get for them? How fast do they need to sell?
if you aren't in a huge hurry, You can always start a little higher and see how they sell..if not, know your low price.
yea. no alpines.Did you look in different areas within the state?
i'll see if i can get a dewormer. i dont know how to check her famacha.. .The doe looks like she may need deworming and mineral supplements. How is her FAMACHA? Was she dewormed when she kidded? What has she had for minerals the past few months?
Calf manna, Black Oil Sunflower Seeds, dyne, or wheat germ oil would be things you could try.Now, right now, no one would buy her. Her hair is all dull colored and matted down, and she is kinda skinny. She never gets her summer coat until the kids are gone, so its not like she lost her coat or anything. Idk what i can do while her kids are here to fix her up... any suggestions??
pets, they're my 4H project so they're really nothing special as far as udders and dairy production. 3 of the 4's mom has the weakest udder of my 3 does. her daughter, who is 16 months has a better udder than her after kidding once..soo.....What are you selling them for? Pets? Dairy? If dairy, include any milk history you know like how much mom gave.
Try to get some good pictures that show conformation. They are very pretty, but If they aren't registered and don't have any milking history, I can't imagine them going for over $150. If you can find a market, maybe $200. Good luck!

Calf Manna you can mix into her feed or top dress. I've feed up to a cup of it to help my does gain weight.how do i feed those to her? like what ammounts/how often?
oh wow! yea, its all about timing haha last year i was looking for a buck and i saw some good deals and expensive alpine bucks on there, but i wasnt ready to buy one before selling my doeling so i didnt buy any of those, but then couldnt find one for a while after that and it was getting later in fall so i ended up paying a little more for one than i would have liked, just cuz i was desperate 😂True Craigslist story: Had a buddy of mine that wanted to get rid of a buck. He put it on craigslist for $75 hoping for a quick sale. After weeks of not being able to sell it, he gave it to a relative who listed it on craigslist for $200. He received several calls and sold it almost immediately. So you never know. Good luck selling yours. I think the $150 asking price is a good place to start. Maybe offer a discount for buying more than one.
