    I'm getting ready to update my website and make a breeding schedule. How much would you charge for kids from a doe who is a finished champion? I paid $500 for my Ober doe Phoebe, and her breeder charged $300-$400 for her kids, I really don't think that is enough, she is a really nice doe and I haven't seen many Ober does as nice as she is.

    Here is her page: http://www.sandylanedairygoats.com/symphony.htm
    and here is the buck she will be bred to: http://www.sandylanedairygoats.com/silus.htm

    Thanks for your help :)

    First off I think you got her for a STEAL! Congrats. And I think her prices could be higher, but I don't know what Obers run....

    Thats what I thought :p I jumped at the chance to buy her, mom bought her daughter. We paid $350(that really wasn't enough) for BooBoo, and for Obers from top lines are around $400-$1000. Do you think $600 for does and $500 for bucks would be fair?

    I would say so, she is SO much nicer then that Obers I see around here, she is really pretty with an awesome udder.

    i would ask $600. for buck or doe. you can always come down but you can't go up in price.

    Thanks, 'cept she don't have one now :ROFL: LOL I know what you mean(if you saw that fresh pic) :) when she was fresh she had a beautiful udder.

    Mom thought those prices were to much but I think its fair :) I've always charged less for bucks, mostly because the market isn't that great around here and if I want to sell them, I'd like them to go to a breeding home.

    Thanks for your help :)

    Yep, I love the pic of her WITH an udder heehee. When they are dry it just looks like a sack lol.

    It all depends on how your market is for goats around you.
