By placing a reservation or purchasing from us, you agree to the following:
Please contact us if you would like to be added to our free waiting list. As kids are born, we will reach out to members on our list before going to the public.
Priority is given to Performance herds. In addition, for each intact 2024 kid, we are offering to pay the original buyer $50 for the first awarded milk star, linear appraisal, and/or sanctioned show award that the goat receives in the original buyer’s care, for a possible total of $150 per Oberhasli or $100 per Mini Nubian (Mini Nubians unfortunately aren’t eligible for Linear Appraisal).
Being added to our free waitlist or paid reservation list gives you options AFTER we have retained any kids. We reserve the right to retain any kid bred by our farm at any time, at our discretion.
If you would like to reserve an animal, we require a non-refundable $100 deposit. Must be 18 years or older to place a deposit. When making a deposit, please tell us what you are hoping for - gender, a specific breeding, etc. Deposits are non-refundable for any reason UNLESS we are unable to meet the specifications listed when a deposit is made. If we are unable to meet the specs, at your request, we can either refund your deposit, apply it to a different animal, or hold it for the next year. If an animal meeting your specs is available and you decide that you do not want that one for any reason, your deposit is forfeited.
PayPal Friends & Family, Venmo, and Zelle are our preferred method of payment, but we also accept cash, as well as certified or cashier's checks.
We reserve the right to sell animals to what we feel are the best homes based on management and care. Deposits will be refunded for these reasons.
Buyer is responsible for pick-up/transportation. If kids are not picked up before 10 weeks of age, a $3/day boarding fee will apply. If an animal is not picked up by the arranged date, buyer will forfeit their deposit and the animal will be the sole property of JK Herd It All to retain or sell, unless other arrangements are made. View recommended transport options here.
On or before the day of pick up, we request cash, PayPal Friends & Family, Venmo, or Zelle for the balance due. Balances due must be paid in full before the animal leaves the farm. No personal checks will be accepted on the day of sale. If absolutely necessary, we will accept certified or cashier's checks.
All of our goats have originated from clean-tested herds and have themselves tested CAE-free, so we have decided to use a hybrid method to raise kids. This gives them the best of both worlds - socialization with humans and bottles while also learning how to "goat" with their dams.
Kids remain with their dams 24/7 until about a week old. At that time, we pull the kids at night for 10-12 hours. In the morning, we milk the dams and bottle-feed their milk to the kids. After that, they are reunited for the day.
Most kids are ready to head to their new home by 6-10 weeks old, and we require that they are picked up by 10 weeks if reserved.
All kids will be disbudded unless buyer pays full price at time of deposit - horned dairy goats are unfortunately very difficult to find homes for.
Wethers and Pet Only does will be sold without registry papers.
We are dedicated to maintaining our herds and land as naturally as possible, but we have come to terms with the fact that Wisconsin is not a natural environment for goats, and they sometimes need help thriving here.
After struggling with both Clostridium and Pneumonia in the same year, we have made the decision to vaccinate our herds for both. We realize that this is a very personal decision, so we vaccinate our own herd and keeper kids, NOT ones we have listed for sale. They will inherit some immunity from their dams and will be able to be vaccinated upon arrival at your farm. If you would like us to vaccinate a kid, we would be more than happy to do it for you, but only upon request.
Buyer has the option at the time of pick up to refuse the animal if they feel that the animal is not healthy. We cannot warrant the health status of an animal after it leaves our property. All sales are final. Taking an animal off our property implies that you have read and agreed to the sales agreement and are satisfied with the condition of the animal.
Stress can be rough on them and they can go downhill quickly. Something like shipping fever can infect and kill a kid within a few hours. Therefore, unfortunately, we can offer no warranties or guarantees on the health & viability of an animal. However, we do make one exception: if an animal sold for breeding stock (not wethered and not pet only) is found by a licensed veterinarian to have a genetic condition preventing use in breeding, we will refund or replace that animal. Cosmetic conditions that might negatively affect the quality of the animals or their offspring do not apply; only conditions that prevent successful mating, such as hermaphroditism or freemartinism.
Our goat herd is tested annually for CAE, CL, and Johne's. If any other tests are requested, we are happy to administer them if the purchaser pays.
We treat our goats holistically with products from Molly's Herbals, Fir Meadows, and Land of Havillah whenever possible. If something dangerous pops up and herbal treatments are not working, we will call our vet and use Western medicine as needed.
All of our animals are from the very best lines we could find, with many milk award and exhibition winners in their gene pool. This does NOT guarantee that our animals or any of their offspring will be show quality or win awards, or have amazing milk production or udders. That's just how the lottery of genetics works. In order to be fully transparent, we have listed flaws that we've noticed and are working towards correcting in each of our animals.
