Goats for Sale

If you are new to Goat Keeping, you may want to have a look at 'Goat Keeping' on the file share page.  Depending on your particular plans, there are many and varied things to consider before committing to a life with this livestock.  Whether 2 pets, or a whole herd, the same rules apply.

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 in 2019 who was kept in isolation until we were satisfied he was ok.  We have had no known cases of infectious disease on our holding, or in the immediate area around us, 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 many of ours are.  All goats bred here do come from a pure Boer Buck (the male), so can be registered with the BBGS (at the buyers cost) if required.  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 will see if we can come up with a solution that suits you.  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 for the girls.  A Buck will be £250 upwards depending on age, experience and pedigree.

 

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.

Bucks

We currently have one proven senior Buck available, along with one commercial boy who is keen to work.

As young boys mature, we will add them to the list.

Fronhydd Shag

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.

SOLD

Coedwig Kaiser

We bought Kaiser as a young un-proven boy back in 2017.  He has grown into a fine looking buck and has given us over 60 kids.  We have a home-grown youngster now who has been with his first small group of ladies, so the time have come to mix up our gene pool.

Fronhydd Goose

Born July 2019 to our first herd Buck, Emperor.  Goose will make a great addition to a commercial setup.  He is 100% Boer but is NOT registered with the Boer Goat Society.  If you are looking to build a registered herd, you need to look at other boys.

Goose has recently been with his first small group of ladies. We expect to see kids from him in Spring 2021.

The Girls

The availability of females changes frequently.  We will always try and keep the list here accurate and up to date.

 

We do not sell Does in the last month of their pregnancy, or until a month after giving birth. 

If you want to start from scratch with a group of young girls, or want to introduce some different genes into your herd, we have a good number of young girls available that were born in 2020.  For guidance, we would recommend waiting until the girls are around 18 months old (and in good condition) before putting them in with a Buck for the first time.

Note : If you want to register a male Boer with the Boer Goat Society, it must be entire and it must be from parents that are both Grade 0 (100%).

Any female goat born to a British Boer Goat Society registered buck can be registered with the Society.  The grade depends on the parents.   The Does can be from Grade 0 to 4:

Grade 0 (100%) 

Grade 1 (93.75%)

Grade 2 (87.5%)

Grade 3 (75%)

Grade 4 (50%)

Offspring from a registered Buck and a Grade 1 Doe will have kids that are treated as 100% (though a Buck from this cross can NOT be registered).
