NIGERIAN DWARF GOATS FOR SALE

This is the aspect of goat keeping that we do not look forward to. In order to make room for some promising new kids from our current breedings, we have to make hard decisions every summer on who to keep, and which will move on to another herd. If you are looking for an immediate milk supply for your homestead or dairy, please let us know if one of our ladies may meet your needs. You will also find wonderful pet goats, as well as kids who show potential for as 4H and show prospects. Many of our does are top ten milkers as all of our goats come from the top milk and show lines in the country

WHY DO YOU WANT GOATS?

When I get inquiries about purchasing goats I always ask this question first ~Why do you want to own goats? Which is always a good question to ask yourself as well. *smile* Of course there is no "wrong" answer ~ but your reason (s) will help ensure that the Nigerian Dwarf dairy goats you purchase from Joyful Hearts Farm will meet your specific needs and goals ~ whether it be showing, home dairying, acquiring new breeding stock, brush clearers, or as family pets.

At Joyful Hearts Farm we are very proud of our beautiful goats. Our breeding goals aim for correct little dairy goats that will be a pleasure to own, no matter what your goals may be.

WHY A GOAT FROM JOYFUL HEARTS FARM?

We initially made a huge investment in acquiring the highest quality foundation animals. This is reflected by Milk Stars (for example: *D's and *S's and *B's that you see after the goats name); by high Linear Appraisal scores, Classification scores, show wins (MCH/ARMCH), etc. We purposely keep our herd very small so that each goat gets quality care and individual attention.

OUR MOTTO IS "QUALITY ~ NOT QUANTITY!"

We have tested our herd annually since our first goats arrived in 2005 for CAE & CL via WADDL to ensure our buyers that our herd is disease free. We have a Licensed Vet draw the blood, so you can trust our test results to be accurate and true. We also back up our claims by providing whole herd test results to our buyers upon request. Our last testing was done April 2014 for CAE, CL, and Brucellosis ~ Negative for the 9th year in a row!!

We are available after your purchase to provide ongoing support.

In early summer we prepare each buck and doe for the upcoming breeding season. We do this by giving herbal, vitamin, and mineral supplementation. Prenatal care continues throughout pregnancy, and after kidding. We also carefully evaluate who each doe will be paired with in order to hopefully produce the most outstanding kids. Our does are then bred from late Summer through late Fall, with kids arriving early January through March. Once in awhile we will breed a couple of does for Fall kiddings. Check the kidding schedule for updates.

We dam raise our kids, but also combine bottle feeding whenever possible. This is producing hardy, healthy kids for us that are also people friendly. Read what others are saying about their Joyful Hearts dam raised kids! Buyer Testimonials . Our kids are put on an Herbal deworming and cocci protocol beginning at 2 weeks of age, as well as probiotics, and mineral supplementation prior to kids leaving our farm. We disbud and tattoo for you as well.

If you are thinking of starting out with these wonderful dwarf goats, or are looking to add some new genetics to your existing herd, please consider a Joyful Hearts goat or two! =)

BUCKS & WETHERS FOR SALE

We do sometimes offer a mature buck when he no longer fits into our breeding program, or if we need to downsize our herd. If you are interested in any of our current bucks, we suggest reserving a 2015 buck kid!
We only offer bucks from outstanding mammaries. Bucks kids offered for sale that do not end up selling may be retained for our own breeding program and offered for sale at a later date for a higher price once they are proven herd sires.

Kealoha's Pedigree


Aloha's dam, "Tia" has very strong, VERY long lactations, as does her littermate sister, and granddam. At appraisal last year, her appraiser said she was "that close" to getting an E on her mammary. Hopefully this summer, when she turns 5 yrs old, she will! She scored VEEV '89' under one of the toughest appraisers last year, but this last appraisal she was in one of her "moods". She loves to tuck her rump when she gets nervous, and unfortunately, she did just that and the appraiser marked her down for GA, which I did not agree with at all.

Aloha's sire, Piper, scored an EEEE '90', however, he went OH due to having very sharp withers, so was marked down to an '89'. All of Pipers daughters have been very well under the height limit, he actually appears to be a down sizer buck! Piper's pedigree speaks for itself!!!!

Aloha is extremely well bred, and this is a great opportunity to add these genetics to your breeding program. I only have 6 does now, and have medical bills piling up, so I have, very regrettfully, decided to offer this promising young buck to another herd where he will be appreciated and USED!!

Aloha excells in general appearance, has a level topline, is long bodied, sharp, angular, and dairy. He stands on straight front legs, having an excellent rear leg set with plenty of width between the hocks, and very good feet. His deep red coloring is icing on the cake! Like all of our bucks, he was dam raised for the first 5 weeks, and then "finished" being raised as a bottle baby.
