     Thanks so much for your interest in our LaMancha herd. We have tried to include all pertinent information on each doe but if you have any questions or need additional information, please don't hesitate to give us a call.  A health certificate (certificate of veterinary inspection is usually $50)  as well as any additional health tests and shipping costs including an airline approved kennel are the responsibility of the buyer and must be paid in full prior to shipping. If you are taking the animal across state lines out of Wisconsin, state law requires that they be accompanied by a health certificate. We charge an additional $75 delivery fee to the airport as we ship out of Minneapolis-St. Paul International Airport which is over a 350 mile round trip for us. We also charge a $100 labor fee for International sales. All animals must be paid in full before they leave the farm. We do not accept payment plans after you take possession of the animal.  You are welcome to make payments on your purchase prior to and up until 2 weeks after they are born but they must be paid in full by that time or they will be offered to the next herd in line and your payments will be non-refundable.

     We receive many questions regarding delivery and boarding of animals past a month of age. We greatly prefer that you plan to ship/pick up your reserved kid by 4 weeks of age. We have limited space and need to keep making room for those animals that we are keeping. If you can't arrange to have your animal picked up or shipped, we charge $1.00 per day per animal after 4 weeks of age. As far as delivery, it can be arranged if we are making a trip in your direction but please contact us ahead of time to find out costs and make arrangements. We do NOT deliver for free. Mature animals need to be picked up within 2 weeks after purchase unless prior arrangements are made and boarding will still be charged on does remaining more than 2 weeks after they become available. If we are holding an animal for an extended time as part of a delivery trip, they must be paid in full within 2 weeks after you have committed to buy them. We will not hold an animal that is not paid in full. Please consider when a doe is due before reserving a kid. We freshen many does in January and February and prefer not to hold these kids until spring so please be sure you can handle that kid once he or she is a month of age.

     Kids are raised on a strict CAE-prevention program and have been since 1988. All kids are removed from their dam's at birth and raised on heat-treated colostrum and pasteurized goat's milk and each batch of milk is carefully temped, but we do not test our herd on a regular basis.  We are more than willing to test any adult animal for CAE at the buyer's expense but WE WILL NOT REPLACE AN ANIMAL AFTER IT HAS BEEN EXPOSED TO ANOTHER HERD AND LATER TESTS POSITIVE FOR ANYTHING. Please note that our entire herd is CL vaccinated so any testing for CL after the animal is vaccinated will result in a positive test. Please be aware of this.

     Kids receive free choice clover-trefoil mix hay and water as well as a starter grain with a coccidiastat in it. We are on a regular vaccination program using Inforce 3 as well as Essential 3+T and the new Texas Labs CL vaccine. Animals receive annual BoSe shots and are wormed as needed. We feed a 16% mixed grain ration to the milking herd as well as clover-trefoil mixed hay. Free choice salt and minerals are available to all.

     2013 and 2014 were amazing years for us in the show ring. We finished several favorite does and earned multiple dry legs on junior does. Caramel continued to amaze us with her steady, high production while traveling to multiple shows and earning multiple BIS and BUIS awards. We attended the National Show in both St. Paul, MN in 2013 and in Louisville, KY in 2014 and were thrilled with our placings, topping it off by earning Best 3 Junior Does at the 2014 National Show with Kalypso, CitCat and Cinnamon.

     In 2015 we made the decision to cut back some on showing. We attended the Iowa Dairy Goat Association Spring Classic (quad ring show of over 400 head) show in late May. Kalinda finished her championship there....16 months into her lactation. Maisey picked up another leg and both Frosty and Candy Cane earned dry legs with Grand Champion Junior Doe wins. Candy went on to be named Best Junior Doe in show. While we attended the 2015 National Show in Redmond, OR, it was only to work on the National Show Committee. We would have loved to have our herd there the nearly 4000 mile northern journey through the mountains was more than I wanted to tackle with a stock trailer and we preferred to leave them at home in preparation for linear appraisal just 2 weeks after Nationals.

     Following our show schedule of 2015, we again attended the Iowa Dairy Goat Association Spring Classic this year. We finished Kalista when she was 3X GCH Senior Doe and 3X Best of Breed. Orangey was 1X RGCH and Cookie was 1X Best of Breed. We picked up dry legs on Ginger and Snickers and Parti Tyme was 2X GCH Junior doe and 1X Best Junior Doe in Show. We also attended the 2016 National Show in Harrisburg where Snickers was 3rd place Senior Kid in a very large class. Deliah was 8th place yearling milker, Fallyn was 12th place yearing milker, Cookie was 15th place 5 & 6 year old and Charade was 20th place 2 year old in a huge, competitive class.

     We ask for a $100 deposit to reserve kids. ($200 if the animal is going out of the country.) This is non-refundable if you cancel your order. We do not hold animals without a deposit. If the kid you have chosen is not born or is not acceptable for us to sell, we will refund your deposit or allow you to choose another kid. While we will accept a deposit on a buck kid out of a first freshener, we will make the final decision on that sale after the doe has freshened. We will contact you as soon as possible after your kid is born and prefer that you pick it up or make arrangements for shipping within one month, unless prior arrangements have been made. If you plan to have your kid shipped by air, please make arrangements to send a 300 or 400 airline approved carrier as soon as you are notified. The balance of the payment is expected within 2 weeks after the birth of the kid or it will be offered to someone else. We prefer your final payment is made by money order or cash. Please indicate a 2nd and 3rd choice kid when you send your deposit. If you anticipate longer than a 4 week wait to pick up your animal, it must be paid in full and boarding will be charged after 4 weeks. As always we reserve the right to retain any kid born on the farm. Deposits will be taken in order received based on postmark (or paypal) date.

     We normally plan to retain a first kid out of the majority of our does unless we are contacted about them. Please feel free to email us if you see a particular kid you want. Prices for kids are listed on each doe's page as well as our kidding schedule page . We will not be taking deposits on any polled doe kids for 2017. Available kids will be posted on our For Sale page and also on our Facebook page. Buck kids will only be retained if pre-ordered so please contact us early.

     We will have a group of approximately 10-15 young fresh does available starting in February 2016. These will primarily be dairy does and would make a great starter herd or addition to your existing herd. Please contact us for more information. Group price available and would include an available buck kid of your choice if the entire group is purchased. Delivery possible for price of gas within the state or close surrounding states. Dairy does must be picked up as they become available. I do not hold dairy does once they are sold. Any does held for more than 2 weeks will be charged boarding at the rate of $5.00 a day. We will most likely have a few select show quality dry yearlings available in the spring of 2017 as we are holding a larger than normal group of kids over dry this year. These will be first come-first served so get your deposits in early.
