Mitten Acres Sales Policy for Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats
Thank you for stopping by Mitten Acres and for your interest in our Nigerian Dwarf Goats! We love our Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goats. We strive to produce healthy, ADGA registered, productive milking goats.
Our Sales Policy is as Follows:
All goats will be tattooed, disbudded and have current CD/T shots. No animal will leave the farm unless we feel they’re in completely eating on their own (weaned) and are in optimum health. All kids sold are weaned and eating on their own. We do not sell "bottle babies". Please note our Veterinarian disbuds all of our babies with a pain block and anesthesia. We cannot and do not guarantee that goats won't have scurs.
Buyers are responsible for the following additional costs if required:
1) Any and all transportation costs, necessary travel crates/supplies and/or paperwork your transporter requires.
2) Any additional health checks, blood tests or other health related examination which is required by you or your state or transporter by a licensed veterinarian prior to pick up.
3) Any transfer Costs of Registration Certificates to your name if buying registered stock.
Wethers are done at 9 to 12 weeks of age. Any bucks born on our farm will be wethered at no later than 14 weeks of age if they have not been sold unless of course we are adding them to our breeding program. We do not airship goats.
Once babies are born, we require a deposit of half of the balance of the purchase price of the goat. You will need to pick-up your kid and pay the balance of the price due in cash upon pick up from our farm.
All Deposits are NON-REFUNDABLE; however, in the unfortunate circumstance of death or illness, the deposit may be directed towards a future kid, or refunded - Buyer's Choice.
We’ll work closely with those who are fairly new to goats; however, we reserve the right to turn down any potential buyer for any reason.
If you know nothing at all about goats, for the welfare of the animals, we urge you to do research on goat care, feeding and needs before buying any goat.
Goats are herd animals - They require a buddy and they require a diet of good, quality grass hay, fresh water, minerals, baking soda, hoof trimming, dry, safe shelter and lots of love! Buyers are urged to have a veterinarian lined up in advance in case of any emergency or issue requiring veterinarian care. We want to help ensure our kids survival but it is up to the buyer to educate themselves to ensure the animals thrive.
We’re a small farm; all our animals are well socialized and handled daily. We check every one of our goats every day to ensure they’re in good health and socialized. All goats receive preventative vaccines (CD & T), hoof trimming, cocci medicine, deworming, copper and BoSe as needed/recommend to ensure their continued good health. We love our goats and will give you whatever support we can after your purchase but it is your responsibility to provide the care and attention they require. If you have questions, please email or call we will do our best to help you.
Once notified by EMAIL your animal is ready for pick up, you need to make arrangements to pick the animal(s) up within seven (7) calendar days of EMAIL notification between the hours of 9 a.m. and 6 p.m. EST. After seven days (7), a boarding fee of $7.00 per day will be charged and will be due with the final balance owed in cash.
If the animal(s) are not picked up by the 14th day of original date of EMAIL notification the animal is ready to be picked up, the deposit will be forfeited as liquidated damages and the goat will be offered for sale or retained at the sole discretion of Mitten Acres or the owners.
** IT IS THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE BUYER TO KEEP ALL CONTACT INFORMATION CURRENT & CORRECT & STAY IN TOUCH.
WE CANNOT CONTROL ANY STRESS THAT MAY OCCUR AS A RESULT OF TRANSPORTATION, THE ANIMAL’S ENVIRONMENT OR CARE ONCE THEY LEAVE OUR FARM; WE DO NOT OFFER FURTHER GUARANTEES.
All Sales are FINAL.
