Kathryn's 2017 Goat Kidding Diary

Kiddings will be listed below chronologically with the most recent first. To start at the earliest entry, click here.

Getting Started

Kathryn/David

2/26/17 The cows have all calved, the sheep have all lambed, and now it's the goats' turn to kid. We will have 27 does kidding this year, with 15 of those expected to do it at the same time in early March.  Normally BMR is a two-person operation, but luckily, we have many friends that are planning on coming to help.  It's going to be hectic and exciting and a whole lot of work and fun for everyone.  It will be quite different than last year kiddings which dragged on from January through June!

BMR is a goat cheese dairy and candy kitchen.  David is the Cheese Maker, Candy Maker, and gourmet chef as well as being the ranch maintenance man, road grader, feed hauler, sales manager, and computer expert. He is also a great help with the goats.  I’m Kathryn, the herd manager.  I care for the goats, sheep, cows, pigs, chickens, livestock guardian dogs, and barn cats, as well as keeping the website up to date. 

We try to attend all births and are ready to help a doe out if she runs into trouble while kidding. The kids are bottle fed colostrum for the first few days, and then we feed them goat milk until they are weaned or go to their new homes - we never use milk replacers. They also have access to free choice hay, water, and alfalfa pellets once they are old enough.

The does are looking great, humming a lot, and waddling around with amazingly large bellies.  We are expecting a wonderful kidding season and I’ll report on the kiddings as often as I can. Thanks for reading along.

My favorite Kidding T-Shirt

10/8/16 There was a line-up at the buck pen when most of the does decided that they were in heat at the same time. Hopefully a few were just "tag-alongs" that will come back into heat later even though they stood fine to be bred now. But at this point it's looking like a VERY busy couple of days in March when three or four dozen kids could hit the ground at once!

Melody, who was looking at me while I took the picture, did not come into heat and couldn't figure out what all the fuss was about. She'll figure it out soon.


Bucklings must be preordered!

*********************************************************************

Click here to email Kathryn or call her at (928) 536-7759 for more information on how to reserve the kids of your choice.  If you are not sure about which kids might work best for your herd Kathryn would be delighted to discuss this with you.

*********************************************************************

The above listed prices are for reserved kids.  Prices for kids purchased after they are born may be higher. Updates to our Goats for Sale page are posted regularly.

*********************************************************************

We try to limit reservations to two doelings and two bucklings from each breeding on Senior does, and one doeling from each breeding on Junior does.  If you are interested in getting a kid from a doe that is already "booked up" let us know and we can put you on a waiting list.

*********************************************************************

Occasionally a different buck will be used than is listed.  Reservations on these breedings can be honored, changed, or deposits refunded at the buyer's request.

Goat Sales

Prices and Policies

We offer fine Nubian Kids and Goats for sale from time to time. All of our Nubians are purebred and can be sold registered.

Goat Sales Prices
  • Registered Does and Bucks $400 and up
  • Doe Kids and Buck Kids with Registration Application $300 and up
    (10% Discount on purchases of 5 or more kids from this category)
  • Unregistered Bucks $200 and up
  • Wethers $100 and up
Goat Sales Policies

We require a $100 deposit per reserved kid with the balance due within 7 days of the birth of the kid. If payment is not received within that time the buyer will forfeit their deposit money. Prices for reserved kids are for kids picked up by 3 weeks of age. After 3 weeks of age reserved kids will incur an additional $7.00 per day boarding charge. This is due to the cost of feeding the kids our pure fresh goat milk (instead of us being able to make cheese from the milk). While all reasonable care is taken to ensure the health and safety of the kids, Black Mesa Ranch will not be responsible for sickness or death of a reserved kid after it is three weeks old.

Deposits are refunded if your choice of kid is not born or if the kid is not up to our standards of quality. Deposits will not be refunded on cancelled orders. Refunds on deposits paid by credit card may incur a transaction fee. We will honor all reservations for kids to the best of our ability, however we do reserve the right to retain any kid as a replacement in our breeding program.

All goats are guaranteed free of CAE, CL, Brucellosis, and Mycoplasma. They are also all G6S Normal and carry the double high casein protein gene for better cheese making. All of our kids are sold disbudded. Any kids purchased as wethers will be castrated (banded) before leaving the property unless other arrangements are made and a refundable deposit given. There is a $20 fee for any replacement registration paperwork.

We prefer all kids and goats to be picked up at the ranch though other arrangements can be made.

Airport runs by BMR for shipping kids by air are $200 due to the 10 hour round trip required. Buyers wanting to fly their kids are also responsible for having an appropriate shipping crate delivered to the ranch at least one week prior to ship date, and for reserving the flight (Flight Schedule must be approved by BMR first). Buyer is responsible for the cost of the flight, the crate, the health certificate, and the airport run.

If you are interested in buying a goat, please contact us for availability (or to be put on our waiting list) by emailing Kathryn or calling (928) 536-7759.

Sale prices, terms and conditions subject to change prior to sale confirmation.
