    He's about a year and a half, he's very tall, and very sweet. He gets along with everybody and is quiet, doesn't even urinate on himself but he still breeds. His kids have great conformation and a nice coat, he cannot be shown because of his horns, so there's no show record, but me and my mom can't decide on his stud fee. Also he's a purebred Nubian.

    It depends on the area you live in, the availability of good Nubian bucks, his pedigree, his dam and daughters milk production and his comformation.

    In my area, good quality registered purebred or American Nubian buck stud fees are between $50-$75. Thats for a buck with good breeding, good provable production in his dam and daughters and solid body type. Champions tend to have higher stud fees.

    Without papers, maybe 25.00. But then you have to worry about peoples dirty goats passing something onto him and him in turn passing it to the rest of your goats. Unless you have friends that you know for a fact are clean, then its not even worth it IMO.

    The fee here for registered nubian bucks runs $75 for a "driveway" breeding. People may want to see pics of his dam's udder and pics of a daughter's udders.

    Your buck would have to be proven CL/CAE free, and the does would also need papers stating that they're disease negative. It's the only way to keep all goats involved safe.

    Is he registered? You don't say, you just say Purebred. It would make a difference

    U could band his horns ..... Just a thought and I would insist on records showing test results for cl/cae.... Goats can have stds like chlamydia as well ..... :) I'm sure u know all this anyway but hey why not say it again for good measure ;)
