    I'm sure this has been done to death, but I can't find it.....lol
    What is a reasonable price for soon to freshen milk bred goats (alpine, and alpine crosses)?

    $250 on up, Less than that really is a deal, as it costs more than that to feed a goat for a year .

    I would base it on wether it is a cross, registered, the mother's udder and bloodlines.

    If the doe is anywhere near decent looking $250 is a good starting point.

    Around here, it depends on quality, breeding, etc. If they are registered, $200 for an average goat, up to waaaay more for a really good goat with good lines. If they aren't registered, probably $125 and up.
