From what I can see they look healthy. I guess it depends on what you what them for and if you have the room.

What is the pricing in your area? Right now, at this time of year, goats aren't going for very much. People keep reducing their prices. I would check out Craigslist and get a guesstimate for your area.

Of course it depends on if they are registered or not too.

At the last sale everything sold high even the nannies, so Im wanting to add but he want 200 ea they havnt kidded for him yet but all are either young or are experienced, he just doesnt have the room he has 5 acres and we have 700 ( mostly row crops but we get shuck bales from that) but does 200 sound too much. And i did see a cull nanni go for 1.30 a lb at 190 lbs so if a cull nanny can bring 200 I guess good nnnies to right? I dont know i am in between lol

If they are all pregnant, then $200 each doesn't sound like a bad price at all. Especially when you can sell the offspring and probably make more than your money back.

I say look at what prices are at your area. If culls are 200 then start around there.....depends how fast he wants them gone. Here those goats are only worth 100-150 tops so hard for anyone to give you a price

I had to put a Nubian down this spring because she had CAE so I want to add more to my herd, i put her down by the way because I dont have the place for a goat with CAE and I dont want to be known as the person who spreads CAE

Looks like a decent commercial herd to me. Sounds to me like they are priced right...for your area. I always base my price on what I can get for it at the sale....if you can get that much for a cull, then a good, healthy bred doe is worth at least that. Prices are going up here or staying strong at the least. I'm hoping that means when I'm ready to sell in the spring when prices are traditionally higher that I might even break even!!!

$200 each doesn't sound bad, but IMO if you are buying all 22 you should get a package deal price.

Just coming off the sale for the holiday where they wanted larger animals that is why the price has been up for culls. Those look like good solid replacement does and would be worth $150-$175 or higher here now.
