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 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 some 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 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. 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 who has developed into a fine looking buck. And who doesn't love a bit of colour on their boys!
We have a small number of young girls available now, born early 2020. We will have some more (younger still) once they are weaned from their mums.
If you are looking for a experienced Does, or looking for Does In Kid, please do contact us as we do have girls that are pregnant or recently kidded at most times - it will only be small numbers if we do though. We will never sell on Does that have had problem kiddings, or trouble raising their kids.
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 small number of young girls available that were born in February 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.
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.
