    This summer we were fortunate enough to be given a trio of Cashmere goats - mom, dad, and baby boy (who is notw a whether). Since then the buck has become quite handsome (good nutrition does wonders!!) and I've had several folks ask about using him for breeding...

    I just wondered you you folks have experienced. I know that the girls would have to come to him...but what do I charge?

    TIA

    We "rented" a boer billy last year for $60. We kept him at our place for about 6 weeks in a pasture with 9 of our does.

    Stud fees here range from $50 to $75 depending on the buck.

    Cashmere bucks are gorgeous creatures, aren't they?
