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 £225 and £300 per head for the girls.  A Buck will be £350 upwards depending on age, experience and pedigree.

Preferred payment methods are Cash or Bank Transfer (prior to collection).  If you prefer to pay by Credit Card, 2% will be added to the bill to cover card payment charges.  Local deliveries can be arranged - these will be charged depending on distance.

 

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 do not have any mature Bucks available at this time.

As any young boys mature, we will add them to the list once we are happy with their development and condition.

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.

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 for a Buck to be registered with the BBGS, both parents MUST be Grade 0.

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 further 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.
