    I have a doe due in a couple weeks. Or a week now. Wow, time flies.

    Anyway, the doe is a grade pygmy, and not exactly GREAT but decent enough to beat out some really nice reg goats to get fifth place. And the sire isn't my best buck but he got first in his class at an NPGA class at 3 months of age. And is a reg pygmy, but not yet proven.

    The kids won't (and can't) be NPGA reg. But I'm not sure how much to sell the doeling(s) and wether(s)? Any suggestions? I'm not sure...as these will be the first grade goats that I am selling. Thanks!

    I sold unregistered mini mixes not long ago.

    These were my prices

    Doelings: 150.00
    wethers: 75.00
    bucks: 75-100

    I couldnt part with them for much less then that or I wasnt "making" even a tad bit of money off the breedings

    150 - doelings
    100 - bucklings
    75 - wethers

    Unregistered crosses -

    125 - doelings
    100 - bucklings
    75 - wethers

    My nigi/pygmy does are $85 and wethers are $65

    I could go higher BUT the area itself doesn't allow me to do so, if I raised prices I am afraid that I wouldn't be able to sell them :(

    Does: unregisetered pygmies or nigis: $150-200
    Bucks: Don't sell unregistered bucks.
    Wethers: $100, I sell ALL wethers for $100, but if they want them registered it's an extra $25.

    That sounds good. :thumb: You can always go down...but not up so that sounds like a good price. Then you'll be able to get a feel for what grade pygmies would go for in your area.

    OK....I have a guy that wants to buy the twins that were born last week as well as another doe. I was going to sell them all for $150 (each). How much should I sell them as a package? :question:

    I dont think I would take too much off- since the price already seems pretty fair-
    Maybe sell them all for $400 instead of $450??

    I agree with Proctor. :thumb:
     
  13. We are talking a different breed here but my percentage does, reg is up to the buyer; I will do it but I ask first, go for 150.00 each. If you take two I take 25.00 off. But when you look at it, they either get 25.00 off from you or go somewhere else and pay the full 150.00 all over again. If they were getting three from me I would take 25.00 off each additional goat. SO 50.00. However, make sure they know how to bottle feed or what have you. Does that young in a new persons hands could be an issue. Just a thought.

    Thanks, I was thinking $400 since the 2 are grade and the other one has a teat spur.

    Guys, I have another price question...I have someone interested in buying a grade doe bred to one of my bucks. The doe's sire is registered and the buck she'd be bred to is also registered. About how much should I sell her if she's bred? Thanks!

    since the kids cant be registered (correct me if wrong) then the doe and kids (unborn) are only minis so I usually ask for a little more then the doe is worth. Like $225.00 bred

    Now you need to decide if you are going to confirm the pregnancy or not. If you breed her and then she comes into heat after they buy her you need to either give them the difference back or breed her again.

    Yes, I know ANOTHER price question... :oops: But I have a doe that recently had a teat spur pop up or else I would've kept her. She is REALLY nice conformationally. One of the best Junior does I have, but she just has that teat spur. :sigh: She is registered with the NPGA and she has KILLER bloodlines.

    Thanks!!!!

    depends -- are you selling her as registered or unregistered? are you selling her as brood only? if not then it is if she is an unregistered mini goat
