Goat Kids will be born March through July. The deposit includes a class at the farm. The class will be held in April (date to be determined). If you want to reserve a goat from Barking Goat Farm the classes are $50. Each goat is $350 but the $50 deposit will be deducted off goat. If you already have purchased goats from another farm but still want to learn about goats the class please contact me.
We want to share our knowledge and experience with you as you bring your baby goat home. The class will be very hands on and we encourage you to bring your whole family. Here are some of the things you will learn in the class.
-What to expect
-Vaccines and shots
-How to give shots and pills
-Minerals and Supplements
-Checking for worms and when you should deworm
And so much more!
Remember goats are pack animals and they need a goat friend. You should never have just one goat. It will get bored and get into trouble! All our kids will be well socialized, you will be bringing home a very friendly goat to begin with. We test our herd on a regular basis, so your kid is coming from a clean herd. This means he/she is free of CL, CAE, and Johnes Disease. Your new baby will be up to date on his/her shots (BoSE, CDT, and copper). They will also be on a cocci prevention program (which you learn about in the class).
We hope to start kidding beginning in March and finish in July. I usually retain a doe or two and reserve the right to retain any doe I wish. We have no idea how many kids we will have but hope to be able to accommodate all who take the class. You will be able to pick your goat in the order you sign up for the class.
If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me.
