My ADGA buckling will not be ready to service the registered doe that is ready to breed this year so I am needing to find a stud service for her. She is a 3 year old ADGA registered Nubian. Can anyone tell me what a decent price would be for this service. One lady I spoke with said she would charge $200, but she has never done it and neither have I so we don't really know what a realistic price would be. Any ideas? Please and thank you!! :)

If you are wanting her bred to a comparable buck for her blood lines, your best bet would be to search the registry for breeders in your area and contact them... most will do driveway breedings for a small fee but be aware that most won't offer the service at all because of the biosecurity measures they keep with their herds.
$200.00 for a stud fee is extreme in my opinion, unless that buck is superior with genetics and has the daughters in milk to prove his consistency.

$200 is very high in my opinion. Personally I charge $75 first doe $50 additional does. I also offer if the doe comes back into heat to re-breed 2 more additional times. This is for driveway breedings. Something to keep in mind is most breeders will not let you bring your does without a recent test for CAE. Also if the doe is a first freshener I will do a doe only memo. So I hope that gives you a good idea of what you should be looking to pay.


How old is your buck?

My buck is 6 months old. I know that he is old enough to breed them, but will it affect the kids at all since he is not fully grown? If there won't be any problems than I will just use him?

Mine are usually closer to 4 months their first breeding season and manage to get the job done. 6 months, wow, he should be all over it!

Between 50-75 for stud service is normal around here. 200 would be normal for a top quality, many times over proven buck.
