|Terms of Sale
|Terms of Sale: We typically sell most of our kids in order to maintain our current herd size.
However we do reserve the right to retain any animal in our herd.
As a member of the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA), we follow the recommended trade
practices of the ADGA's current Guide Book, Secion XIX.
To reserve a future kid, a $75 deposit is required. Reservations are accepted on a first come, first
served basis. Sale prices quoted for reserving a future kids are not guaranteed for same kids later
born unreserved. We will notify you as soon as your reserved kid is born and discuss final sale
arrangements. In the event that the kid you ordered is not born or is not the quality we intended to
sell, the deposit will be refunded or can be retained for another choice or for the following kidding
season. Prices quoted on my website are for kids between 2 weeks to 4 weeks of age. If you would
lide for me to wean the kid out for you, there is an additional $25 fee.
Forms of Payment
By sending the payment, you are confirming that you have read and agree to our Terms of Sale. If you
plan to make a payment, we ask that you please Contact Us first. We are a small family farm and
prefer to speak directly with our potential customers. Prior to any money being exchanged, we will
confirm goat availability, price and other transaction details, in order to avoid any errors or confusion.
Depending on how you prefer to send in your payment, we offer the following payment options:
- Money order, cashier's or personal check*
Pay in Person - Cash, and partial trade on occasion
* We reserve the right to charge a fee for returned checks and do not accept checks at time of pick up.
Pick Up & Delivery
Kids are available for pick up no earlier than 2 weeks of age and no later than 2 weeks after weaning
(approx. 15 weeks old). Kids that have not been picked up by 2 weeks after weaning will begin to
accrue a weekly boarding fee of $25. Ideally, we ask that you pick up your kids between 2 to 4 weeks
We prefer that you pick up your goat in person. Since this isn't always feasible, we offer two
alternatives: local delivery and airline shipping. Local delivery is sometimes available, given
advanced notice and some restrictions apply. Currently, we will deliver goats up to 50 miles away with
the buyer responsible for the price of gas. Airline shipping is also available with prior arrangements.
We prefer to ship kids between 4 to 6 weeks of age out of the Cincinnati/Northern Kentucky
International Airport (CVG). If you think you may require local delivery or airline shipping, please let us
know ASAP so we can begin to make arrangements and discuss the additional cost involved.
Final Sale & Registration
The buyer is responsible for the sale price of the goat as well as all ADGA fees. If applicable, the
buyer is also responsible for the cost associated with any additional boarding fees, health
certifications, and shipping/delivery charges.
Effective July 1, 2006, ALL GOATS will be registered with the ADGA and tattooed in their right and left
ears for identification; this is in accordance with the Kentucky state Scrapie ID program.
At the time of sale, we will fill out/submit the Registration/Transfer of Ownership paperwork to the
ADGA. If at this time, we have not named the goat, then we may allow the buyer to choose the
registered name. The registered name is limited to a total of 30 letters and spaces, and requires our
herd name, N. KY WINDYACRES , as the prefix. NOTE: Since our herd name uses 17 letters and
spaces, that leaves only 13 characters for the rest of the goat's name. The buyer will receive copies of
all paperwork submitted at the time of sale. Upon confirmation and approval of the
Registration/Transfer of Ownership paperwork, the ADGA will issue a Cerfiticate of Registry.
Effective May 12, 2006, wethers are identified with the ADGA by submitting an Application for Wether
Certification. Wethers cannot be "registered" and instead will be given a Certificate of Identification
that states no pedigree is kept or implied.
