Finding an Anglo-Nubian Stud Male Goat

Place your advert for Stud Male Goats here

Now a days it is not so easy to track down Stud Male Goats to use on your herd if you have not one of your own to use. For a start, there are the health schemes to be considered. Very few breeders will allow non tested CAE goats to go to their stud males. Those on the scrapie scheme can not allow female goats outside of this scheme to visit for mating. All this in conjunction with the DERFA rules.

There is a well known saying in the equine world. “Put the Best to the Best and hope for the Best”, This can be applied to all livestock but what one person considers to be the Best, others could well disagree. So it is your best that is important in this case.

The reasons for breeding from your goats are, to produce milk, improve on what you have and continue the blood lines for the future.

Studying pedigrees is important. Knowing what lines work well with in yours helps. To improve on the dam. I would recommend looking at the dam of the male you are going to use. Is/was she better or as good as your female. This is a good starting point.

If you need help in tracking down male goats at stud in your area let the ANGS know. We will do our very best to help and please remember, we welcome ALL BREEDS of goats and will try our very best to help everyone looking for a Stud Male Goat for this coming breeding season.

    Great piece on stud goats……so little is written about them and their needs.

    With the increase in costs all round it is time Stud fees were increased to be more commercial……..long gone are the days when a tenner passed hands !!!!!
    Not forgetting boarding for service….I fail to see how anybody can cover their costs alone on less than £5 per day. Isolation unit, feed, daily care & possibly milking, not to mention labour…..need I say more.

    We have to be realistic about the ‘boys’…..they cost money.
