    I have a polled doe in milk that is 7/8 Nubian and 1/8 Nigerian dwarf. She isn't registered and I'm wanting to sell her but I have no idea how much to ask. Her milk is excellent with no goaty taste, she is such a good mom, and very healthy. She has tested negative for CL, CAE, and Johnes. She is a FF and gave birth to very healthy twin bucklings. The only issue is that she is on the skittish side. Any suggestions on price?

    Have you checked Craigslist prices in your area?

    In my area she would likely be about $200 - $300 but definitely check local goat prices near you including Facebook goat groups, Craigslist, and auction reports

    I am with salty on this one. You have what sounds like an f1 mini nubian doe iirc. Does in milk sell for a bit more round here than dry unbred does do. A reg one like yours if she has good milk lines behind her would go for $400-$600 most likeLy.

    When i got my dora she was very skittish. But with time and paitience she was my lil love bug! She would even brave the rain to come meet me at the edge of their pasture.

    Even with her being unregistered she could go for that much?

    It really depends on your area. My area would only support $200 max. But other areas would support a higher price. That is why you really need to research your area.

    $200-$300 unregistered, good milk lines provable (which is hard with unreg) and in milk. But i do see unreg in milk does go for that here. Like someone else said troll cl and fb livestock and goat pages and see what they go for in your area.

    I was sayin for a registered doe the $400-$600 in milk with good milk lines here.

    Hey why not list for 250 and then you can always negotiate if you have an interested buyer.

    ^^ I agree. Leave yourself wiggle room. Craigslist they especially want to whittle you down as much as possible it seems. I am usually negotiable on prices but not until they physically come out and see the animal.
