IMO if your going to spend that much on a buck then find the best of the best. It might even be better to get a buck from somewhere where ND's are really popular, so show wins really count. Like the New England Area. This area is FULL of ND's and so show wins count a little more... sometimes. But really, you want to look at pictures, pictures and more pictures. Look at pictures of the dam, and sire, and their parents. Some goats just aren't MCH's because the breeders don't show.
