NIGERIAN DWARF GOATS
A Miniature Breed of Dairy Goat
Goats can be 'easy keepers' but they have specific needs and diets. Goats are not an impulse pet, and we highly recommend starting with your first goat with as much knowledge and education you can gather prior to bringing them home. It's the difference from a healthy, happy animal or learning not enough, a little too late.
We are adding resources on the website and linking to other great authors and tools you can use to prepare for goat ownership. Before any goat leaves the ranch we want to make sure you're fully ready and prepared to have a great life together. We love our furry family members and try to do our best by them.
All baby goats include the costs of humanely disbudding with a licensed veterinarian, vaccinations, preventative deworming and wethering (if applicable).
All our baby goats are rehomed 'disbudded' (meaning no horns will grow) and males castrated (wethered). If you'd like to purchase a male goat as an intact buck for breeding please contact us and we can direct you. Any male baby goats being kept intact will require full payment to hold and is non refundable, along with any baby goat you want to not have disbudded.
Most baby goats are disbudded at about a week old with our livestock veterinarian who does this humanely and pain-free for the babies which to us is worth every extra penny! This adds to our costs but we feel it makes a difference to the goats and their comfort.
We have varying 'qualities' of goats and our prices vary upon gender, bloodlines, quality and conformation, registration status, and personality. We believe all our goats are special and do NOT sell for meat/food/consumption purposes. We believe our prices reflect that these are show, breeding and pet/companion animals and not a goat meat operation. Thank you!
Livestock for Sale
For all inquiries or availability please Contact Us. All animals must be purchased in-person at our ranch. A deposit may be required to hold an animal until pick-up or when it is available to leave for its new home. Buyer is responsible to verify their local laws and zoning ordinances for the keeping of any animal, or when passing state lines outside of California. Mullenax Ranch retains the right to keep any animal; with deposit refunded or applied to another available animal.
"Ranch tours" are not included or offered in the sale of any animal. We are a small family owned and operated ranch. The safety and security of our family and animals is our top priority, along with maintaining biosecurity integrity.
"Biosecurity" refers to safety measures meant to limit the transfer of harmful bacteria and infectious disease, which can be transferred on shoes, clothing, vehicles and tires, through other animals and more. Some diseases are deadly or may remain in the ground for decades - hence, we take a few precautions for the safety of our furry family members! Thank you for understanding.
