Choosing a Hoanbu Dairy Goat
We enjoy talking with you about what you are looking for. We strive to fit the right animal with the
right home so be sure to let us know what you are searching for and what improvements you'd like
to see in kids from your Hoanbu dairy goat. Hoanbu Dairy Goats abides by ADGA Recommended
Trade Practices as defined in the ADGA Guidebook. Herd health and proper management is very
important to us. All kids sold will be disbudded, tattooed, vaccinated for CD/T, and supplemented
with Bo-Se injection before leaving the farm. Coccidiosis preventative is also given to kids
periodically until weaned. From time to time, older bucks and does may also be available for sale
so please contact us if you are interested in an animal of any age.
Reserving Your Hoanbu Kid
To reserve the option to purchase a Hoanbu kid, a $100 deposit is required with remaining
balance due within 10 days of notification of birth. We ask that you pick a first and second kid
choice option in the event that your 1st choice is not available. If your choice of kid is not available
or if the animal does not meet our standards of quality, we will gladly refund your deposit or
transfer to another kid or semen if that is your desire, however there are no refunds on cancelled
orders. Deposits along with any monies paid on cancelled orders are not refunded. Prices quoted
are for pre-ordered kids picked up or shipped between 3 to 6 weeks of age. We do not guarantee
these prices for animals ordered after birth. As the breeder/owner of these animals, I do reserve
the right to keep any animal born. Please note that Nubians and Alpines are colored breeds and
we cannot guarantee that kids born will be a certain color. Kids rejected by buyer due to color is
considered a cancelled order.
Deposits and Payment
Prices quoted are for animals picked up at the farm. I generally accept 2 buck kid pre-orders and 1
doe kid pre-order from each dam per year. Deposits on live and mature animals will hold that
animal until pick-up within 14 days. Sending a deposit is your guarantee that you will buy that
animal at the agreed upon price quoted within this timeframe specified. Deposits on live animals
offered for sale are accepted at the rate of $100 down per animal or 30% of the total amount,
whichever is greater. Once a deposit is placed on a live animal, the goat must be picked up or
shipped and out of my possession by 2 weeks or the animal may be offered for sale again or a
boarding fee assessed at the rate of $30/week. Deposits can be transferred to another animal or
semen, but all monies paid on cancelled orders are not refunded. Cash, cashier's checks, paypal,
money orders and good cleared checks are accepted. I will hold registration papers until personal
checks clear the bank. Buyer is responsible for any and all bank fees assessed for bad checks.
Buyer is responsible for all health certificates, veterinary exams, blood tests, shipping, crate, and
other costs associated with veterinary fees and shipment.

I do accept PayPal payments at email@example.com but be aware that buyer is responsible for
all PayPal transaction fees. Please include appropriate fees in your transaction at the time of the
transaction. Click here to calculate your fees to send money via Paypal. You can also send the
paypal funds as a "personal gift" and fees are not assessed. Please indicate what the payment is
for and include contact information if sending money from an unfamiliar name/email address.
Taking Your Kid Home
Although we encourage you to pick your kid up at the farm so that you may view related animals,
this must be done by appointment only because of our work and time commitments. We realize
this may not always be possible so limited delivery can be arranged to the local shows and events
we attend, with or without additional costs. Long hauls to shows are prohibitive of trailer space, so
we prefer to not bring sale goats with us that we are not showing. Let us know your needs well
ahead of time so we can make the necessary airline arrangements to ship your new kid to you out
of Columbus, Ohio (CMH) airport. All shipping costs, including individual cost of kid, Certificate of
Veterinary Inspection and any related testing needed, shipping crate and shipping fees are to be
paid in full by the buyer prior to time of shipping. We will provide ADGA registration papers for any
kid purchased by an ADGA member.
1) send us your clean airline approved crate that is the correct size for your kid/s to be received at
least one week prior to the anticipated ship date,
2) send us funds so a new crate can be purchased, at cost, for us to ship your kid/s to you (you
keep the crate), or
3) use one of our crates with a $75 deposit, refunded once crate is returned to us clean and intact.
Please know that we do not keep just any buck that is born. Our standards are high for a reason.
Buck kids are usually castrated at or before 4 weeks of age if not pre-ordered as barn space and
my time is limited. Due to time and work commitments, please understand that we not like to keep
"extra" buck kids around once show season is in full swing, so please consider pre-ordering
and/or contacting us early. Buck kids are only conditionally available from first fresheners. Before
a buck kid from a first freshener is sold as a breeding buck, his dam must be evaluated in milk for
a minimum of 3 to 6 weeks. We ask that you view several daughters in milk before any Hoanbu
buck's semen is marketed to the public. We reserve the right to obtain 20 straws of semen from
any buck we sell at the cost of collection.
Special Note Concerning Wethers
As we are quite picky about what bucks we save for breeding animals, we usually castrate (band)
several buck kids each year. Market wethers must be reserved with a $20 deposit with balance
due when kid is picked up at or before 2 weeks of age. We will not hold wethers without a deposit
and we will not raise a wether til weaning. No ADGA registration paper will be issued for wethers,
but can be obtained at buyer's cost. A scrapie tattoo will be used in leiu of a scrapie tag.
As the breeder/owner of these animals, I do reserve the right to keep any animal born, or withdraw
from sale an animal that does not meet our quality standards. Hoanbu Dairy Goats abides by
ADGA Recommended Trade Practices as defined in the ADGA Guidebook.
Thank you for your interest and I hope to hear from you soon!
