    I am looking for nubian and pygmy breeders in MICHIGAN AND SURROUNDING STATES. I am willing to drive halfway, and pay up to 75.00 for a pygmy, and up to 100.00 for Nubians. both sexes needed, unregistered only. these will be pets/hobby breeding animals and work animals for myself, a highschool freshman. weanlings or affectionate young adults.

    Where are you located in Michigan?

    I am located in Reed City which is 10 min. from Big Rapids, and 1 hour from Grand Rapids.

    I have a super nice unregistered Nubian buckling for sale. He is just under 1 year old.
    Pedigree:
    Dam: W/H Red Hot Ruby (Grade Nubian)
    http://www.geocities.com/windyhollowfarm/W_HRedHotRuby.html
    Sire: *B Capital Smooth Charmer
    SS: ++*B GCH Kismet Marvin's Smooth Operator
    SD: GCH Capital Basic Charm 2*M LA 3yo 90 EEEE

    He is from registered stock, but unregistered due to his grade dam.

    He is listed at $70 for a buck, and $40 as a wether.

    Baby pictures are at the above link. This boy looks really good now. He looks nicer than my Purebred registered bucklings :eek: He is all boy, and ready to work for you. He is disbudded.


    This spring I will have two grade Nubian does for sale. They were both exposed to bucks, but I dont know if they took. I am thinking that one doe is pregnant. However, both does are sisters, and one doe is the dam to the above buckling.

    Are you looking for wethers? I will have wethers available this summer. All my does are due in May.

    However, I do not like my goats to go for meat. I would rather them have a nice home so if your intention is meat I could point you to other breeders.

    well, im in brooklyn mi, about two minutes away from MIS. i need bucks and does, but maybe not this year, so i wanted to locate a breeder early. They and thier offspring will be pets, thier offspring sold as pets only. they are harder to sell that way, but i can't stand seeing them be killed! how much are the does, how old are they? it would be helpfull if you told me of the other breeders, also, because i would be able to save some of the animals that would go for meat.

    You can post on yahoo groups on the MIgoat list.
    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/MIgoat/

    The other breeders I know have registered stock only, and are expensive. However, you may be able to get wethers cheap from them.


    The two grade does are listed as $125 not in milk, $150 in milk. Both does will be 2 years old this April.
