As a new goat owner, you are probably starting out like the rest of us—dazed and confused by breeders flashing their ‘bloodlines,’ ‘strong dairy genetics,’ ‘dual-registered,’ ‘correct’ goats around on their websites and on local sales boards… And if you are currently anything like I was at the time that I was looking to purchase a dairy goat, you are also probably thinking the same thing I did… so before you give-up and purchase an unregistered goat, here is my experience and where it finally lead me..
When purchasing a Goat, you can never ask too many questions. However, you can ask too little. The whole point of asking the seller questions is 1) to gain a better understanding of the type of care this goat has been receiving; get a snap-shot of its health, 2) give yourself the opportunity to observe the animal and examine it before you bring it home, and 3) determine if this is the animal you want to bring home and add to your herd.
