I don't own a buck so I use someone elses. She charges me 30.00 per doe and I bring him to my place. She requires that the does be vaccinated and only because she said that anyone who vaccinates is taking care of their does and will take care of her buck. Very laid back old lady and I apprecitate her.
I have studded both my boys..the pygmy to a friend and I got a doeling for him staying with her for 2 weeks. The other was my nigi and her does were here...and because I didn't know what he would "throw" I charged 50 for both does...they were here for 2 1/2 weeks...the 50 cobered feed and hay.
I only stud my bucks to healty does, I do not bord as i dont have the room, i have the owner bring the doe with her CAE and CL neg paperwork, if she apears healthy to me then she can get out of the truck or trailer, if not she leaves. i put my buck on a leash as soon as he does his business we walk away, i try to limit his foreplay, i dont like them butting heads and such as it can transmit CAE and such, not all negatives are true negatives. For an unproven buck i charge fifty dollars thirty five to 4-hers.
We don't do stud because we do not want to bring disease into the herd. I do hold does that people have bought till the fall(they have to pay full money down plus board) to be bred to one of my bucks. I charge $35 for breeding and $10-20 a month for board depending upon the goat(yearlings and kids are less because they don't eat as much)
We are getting my buck on Wednesday, and if I stud him it will be a $50 fee [national wins behind him] to healthy does only. They will have to come to my place, not rent him out to go elsewhere.
i will only use my bucks on does that i know. last year i leased legacy out & this year i am leasing jasper out but both times it will be to service does that they bought from me. alot of folks don't have the time or means to own a buck so there always has to be some one to let them use there bucks. when i lease them i do not charge for the breeding because they have to do the cost of feeding & any vet bills.
