As an ADGA Plus herd, we participate ADGA Performance Programs (Linear Appraisal, DHIA Milk test, DNA including Alpha s1 Casein testing, and ADGA sanctioned shows).
These programs require so much of our time and financial resources. Our prices directly reflect these efforts and also provide a foundation for fair pricing for our buyers and future Nigerian Dwarf dairy goat breeders.
As a reminder, this is just a guide; some goats may be priced slightly different, depending on each unique animal. For example: If artificial insemination was used or a goat was transported from a great distance to our farm; this may be reflected in the price of the kid.
Please feel free to contact us at any time, using the form at the bottom of this page, if you have any questions at all or are interested in a specific pairing.
**We consider discounts and priority for active 4-H and Performance homes.**
**Reservation & Deposits:
**ALL DEPOSITS ARE NONREFUNDABLE**
*If a deposit is placed on a specific goat, and the buyer no longer wants to purchase said goat, the deposit may be reserved for a later breeding or another available goat from Magnolia Hill Farm. Deposits will not be refunded.
*Deposits on Registered Doelings and Bucklings are $200 (this is a down payment toward the purchase of an ADGA registered Nigerian Dwarf goat).
*Deposits on Unregistered Doelings and Bucklings are $100 (this is a down payment toward the purchase of an unregistered 100% Nigerian Dwarf Goat).
*Deposits on Adults and Wethers are HALF of total purchase price (this is a down payment toward the purchase of a Nigerian Dwarf Goat).
**Deposits are not accepted on planned breedings, deposits are only to be sent after the kid is born.
*After the goat is determined by Magnolia Hill Farm as ready to leave the farm, a 50% non-refundable reservation fee is required to hold any goat for up to 14 days , while shipping/transfer arrangements are made; which should be made in a very timely manner unless agreed upon in writing. We understand transporters schedules, but effort needs to be made for transport to be lined up quickly and dates known. Buyer has the responsibility to coordinate their own transports.
*If animals are not picked up by 14 days after deposit received and the goat is determined to be ready to leave by Magnolia Hill Farm, or in the agreed upon time, then a $5.00 a day boarding fee will be charged per day thereafter. After another 14 days has passed for adults and kids, the goat(s) will be placed back up for sale and any payment received will be forfeited, unless arrangements have been made with us to hold your kid or goats longer with transportation and dates of it lined up.
*Should the Buyer back out of the sale, or not pay in the agreed upon time or transported in agreed upon time, any monies paid are forfeited and the animal may be put back up for sale. ***Buyer is responsible for all shipping costs (including crates) and all vaccinations, testing and/or health certificates required by your state.*** There is a gas/mileage fee for transport to airports. Delivery can also be made by meeting part way or delivering to your farm within reasonable distance and if we are available to do so. **Mileage and gas fees at current market value will apply for any deliveries over 15 miles one way, unless agreed upon in advance.
*All animals must be paid for in full before transfer of papers and any animals are picked up at the farm, and all animals must be paid for in cash, Venmo or by PayPal.
*All animals are sold on a first come first serve basis and by reservation. A Reservation consists of a clear statement from the Buyer to Magnolia Hill Farm of their intent & desire to be on the waitlist for that particular goat and must be accompanied by a completed application. Waitlist requests received WITHOUT a completed/received application will not be considered legitimate.
*We ask that you put down 2 breeding pair options per reservation.
Once kids are born, we will contact people in order of deposit, then general reservation. If your first choice is not available (including breeder retaining kid), the paid deposit may be applied to another available kid of your choice or you may wait for the next breeding on that doe or you can use your reservation toward another breeding if those are not taken and full.
*Pricing of kids is based on lineage, conformation and potential. Prices may be adjusted once kids are on the ground, no prices are set in stone until evaluation of kid and dam's udder is seen after kidding.
**Breeding pairs and due dates are subject to change at any time**
***Magnolia Hill Farm reserves the right to cancel and not sell to anyone we do not see fit; at any time, we see fit!!***
*REMEMBER NO ANIMAL IS SOLD UNTIL PAID IN FULL. All animals will be marked as sale pending after deposit in half is received in cash, Venmo, or PayPal. No animal will be marked sale pending without 50% deposit.
*In the event that something should happen to the animal between the deposit and leaving the farm, Magnolia Hill Farm will return the deposit or apply that deposit towards another animal.
*Registrations and Paperwork on all goats sold as registered will come with filled out applications for registration or original certificates with signed transfers. It is the responsibility of the Buyer to keep these papers in a safe place until registered in their name. For a $15 charge per goat, Magnolia Hill Farm will replace lost applications/paperwork. Buyer is responsible for all charges of registration/transfer fees.
*Health Papers, Shipping, Testing ALL transporters need and require health papers, any testing and shipping, it is the responsibility of the buyer to pay for these. All testing such as CAE, Johnes, CL, TB, Brucellosis is the responsibility of the buyer if needed outside the regular scheduled testing times. It is also the Responsibility of the buyer to check with their state to see the state laws of imported goats from other states. Health Certificates costs vary, each test has a different cost: if any tests are needed, these costs will be added to the final cost of the goats and paid for by the buyer.
*All animals will be guaranteed healthy at the time of sale. Because we cannot control the goat’s environment after it leaves, there is no extended health guarantee after the goat leaves our possession (including that with the transporter). Show quality animals will be free of disqualifying faults at the time of sale.
**The health of all animals on Magnolia Hill Farm is of the utmost importance.
*Every adult goat at Magnolia Hill Farm is tested annually for CAE, Johne's, & CL.
*All kids will receive CDT vaccine (given they stay until weaning; bottle babies are your responsibility) and Coccidiosis preventative prior to leaving for their new homes.
*Bottle baby sale opportunities are only made with the highest scrutiny, and are NOT guaranteed to all buyers.
*All kids sold from my farm will be disbudded if they are not polled.
**We do not guarantee disbudded goats will not develop scurs as they age.
**Single goat sales will only be made to buyers who already have at least one other goat on the property, where the single goat from Magnolia Hill Farm will be residing, or can prove they will be purchasing another goat at the same time to live with their new Magnolia Hill Farm goat.
Goats are herd animals and may become fatally ill if they are not treated as such. This is strictly for the best interest of the goats we raise from our farm and have no scrutiny over the buyer.
*If an animal is sold as Exposed/has been bred that is just what it means!! There is NO Guarantee given by Magnolia Hill Farm that this doe, after leaving, will kid at your farm!! Due to the stress of transport, the stress of moving, and being at a new home dealing with new feed, new animals around them, we will NOT Guarantee any pregnancy or that a doe will Kid for you!! They are sold as exposed/bred with dates given and memos given for those dates, but NO Guarantee of pregnancy or kidding will be given to the buyer!!
***Magnolia Hill Farm CANNOT and WILL NOT, GUARANTEE A SHOW CAREER OR MILK PRODUCTION OF ANY ANIMAL.***
