Goats for Sale
We are a 'commercial' herd, and as such we do not subscribe to any health status schemes. However, to safe guard the health of our herd, it has been closed for some time now, except for a buck we bought recently who was kept in isolation until we were satisfied he was ok. We have had no known cases of infectious disease, though can not offer guarantees to this effect of course.
Again, being a commercial meat herd, we do not routinely register goats with the British Boer Goat Society (BBGS), though some of ours are. All goats bred here do come from a pure Boer Buck (the male). Many of the herd of Does (female goats) have a dairy breed or Cashmere in their lines, so will not be pure Boer goats themselves. The Boer gives a quality, sturdy meat animal, and the dairy cross tends to give strong kids, often quicker growing than a pure Boer. The Cashmere was bred in to make the particular lines more suited to living outside all year.
If you have a particular plan in mind please do get in touch as we may be able to come up with a solution. Our stock availability changes from month to month, so we will ask you for your plans first, before we go into details of the ones we feel would suit your needs. When enquiring, please do give as much detail as possible of your plans or intentions, in that way we can be sure not to waste each-others time.
Prices will vary depending on age and sex, but you can expect the prices to be between £150 and £250 per head.
Please do contact us once you have an idea of what you want. Or if you have no idea yet, then please feel free to ask any questions.
We have bucklings (young entire boys) available on a regular basis. They are not registered with the BBGS, but will make great additions to a commercial herd. Being young, they are un-proven of course, but you can expect them to be able to start working at around 9 months.
Born July 2019 to our original Buck, Emperor. Outwellien Emperor sired well over 100 kids for us, which is why we wanted to retain one of his last batch. He is a friendly, well grown, solid young man, who would make a great addition to a commercial herd.
Born July 2019 to our second Buck, Kaiser. Coedwig Kaiser was bought as a youngster and has developed into a fine young man, sharing the responsibility for development of the herd. Shag is a friendly young man who has developed well in the last few months.
Born July 2019 to our original Buck, Emperor (see comment against Goose above). Peregrine was slow to develop, and as such got heaps of attention. He is a very friendly lad who we are sure will continue to develop into a decent buck. And who doesn't love a bit of colour on their boys!
Girls of all ages
We always have girls of all ages available, from youngsters that may still be with their mums (you may have to be a little patient for the very young ones!), through to experienced older ladies with proven kidding records. We will never sell on Does that have had problem kiddings, or trouble raising their kids.
We can usually offer pregnant Does that have been served by one of our resident Bucks. We like to let them go after they have been scanned (around 60 days after serving), so you will know how many kids are expected and (approximately) when to expect them. We will not allow the ladies to be moved in the last month of their pregnancy, or a month after kidding (if mums with kids at foot are your preference).
'Commercial' Does with kids at foot
I call them Commercial because some are not registered Boer goats. Our 'Lancashire Lasses' came from the Cockerham herd that have Cashmere bred into them to produce a hardy goat that can live out all year round with minimal input. We choose to keep ours housed, but that is just a personal preference.
These experienced Does were served by our buck Kaiser. If you are looking for experienced girls with a proven record, a group of these would make a good starter herd, or addition to an existing one. The Does were all born in March/April 2016.
Due to the current Lockdown, these girls have not been scanned. These are expected to kid in June/July 2020, so a small number of these will be available with a currently unknown number of kids in August 2020.
If you want to start from scratch with a group of young girls, or want to introduce some different genes into your herd, we will always have groups of young girls available. Typically ages would be from a few months up to 1 year old.
To sum up
Once you have told us the sort of thing you are looking for, we will be happy to come up with a list of suggestions. We can provide pedigree & progeny details and individual photos (if you want them) once we understand your plans.
Better still, if you can get to South West Wales, we would much prefer you had a look at everyone first, before committing to any.
You can contact us here, or via the email/phone number at the foot of the page.
