We are proud members of ADGA, AGS, and WPDGA. All goats except wethers are sold preregistered with ADGA
ROSEBAY RIDGE Sales Agreement and Terms IMPORTANT: By placing a deposit or purchasing an animal from Rosebay Ridge Farm (Kaeryn and Joci Silvera), you indicate acceptance of this agreement and terms. If you have ANY questions or concerns, or wish to negotiate a separate agreement, please contact us in writing via email).
If you purchase any goat, we offer an additional discount on each additional goat purchased at the same time. Registered 4-H members and breeders who have participated in DHIR or LA within the past year will be given a $50 discount per goat (written proof of performance programs or 4-H membership required at the time of sale).
Registration: Our goats are all registered with the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA). They are also eligible to be registered within AGS, if you should wish to do so. All registered animals will be transferred into the new owner's name at our expense, within ADGA. Please ensure that you provide the exact name (and ADGA ID if applicable) at time of sale. Exception: goats sold as pets will not (and cannot) be registered.
Guarantees: Animals are sold as is, with no guarantee of future health, production, size, or quality. We have made our best efforts to base our breeding program on quality foundation stock, selected for qualities of conformation and production, but gene combinations alone are not always accurate predictors of an animal's final qualities. Once an animal leaves our property, we cannot be responsible for its health, under any circumstances. We are happy to have our veterinarian at Kittanning Veterinary Hospital perform any on-site examination or tests you wish (at your expense) before the animal is picked up.
Exception: Should a doe or buck be found to have a hidden or overlooked congenital defect (as verified in writing by a licensed veterinarian), we will replace the animal with one that we feel is of equal quality, as soon is as feasible. Young stock found to be infertile will likewise be replaced. However, does and bucks that have previously produced offspring are considered proven fertile at time of sale.
BREEDING RESERVATIONS For GOATS:
We accept reservations, but we retain the right to keep any animal if we assess it is the most appropriate animal with which to further our breeding program, or if we deem it unfit for the purpose it is bring purchased.
A deposit of $ 100, or $50 for a wether, will secure a kid from a given litter. . NO REFUNDS will be given of deposit, except in the rare event of accient or injury to the kid..
WE DO NOT GUARANTEE COAT OR EYE COLOR OR MOONSPOTS. If you are seeking a kid based on these qualifications, please don't try to reserve a kid. Wait and see what is available after the reservations have been taken care of.
A DEPOSIT WILL HOLD your kid purchase for 6 weeks after a kid is born. Following that term, your deposit is forfeit unless final payment is arranged under terms acceptable to buyer and seller and before the kid leaves the farm. After 9 weeks, we will apply a $2 per day fee for feed costs, per kid.
We do make and keep a list of planned pairings, but we reserve the right to change the sire assigned to any given doe. Sometimes, the goats make the pairing decisions themselves!
PAYMENT FOR PURCHASES: Payment for any goat purchase must be in full before the animal leaves our hands
Reserved goat kids can be picked up between 2 weeks (if bottle fed) and 9 weeks, when weaned and ready for home. If you have experience raising goats or sheep, you may take a kid home on bottle at 2 weeks or later. If you are a first time goat owner, bottle kids may be picked up as soon as 4 weeks (in pairs, please).
Horn buds can be left on any non-polled kid IF and only IF the kid is Paid In Full within 72 hours of birth pictures.
As of 2018, we are raising all kids of first fresheners on bottle, for ease of milking, and are otherwise leaving buck/wether kids on dams and dual dam/bottle raising if requested with a deposit, which we feel makes the male kids slightly less food aggressive. Any reserved kid can be left on a dam on request, unless we feel it's greatly impacting the production or udder shape of the doe, or the doe has udder health issues at the time.
Older kids and adults may be reserved with a $100 deposit. After 2 weeks, if the goat is not picked up or delivered, a $1/day fee for ongoing feed expenses will be applied until the animal is picked up.
ACCEPTED FORMS of PAYMENT

We are committed to producing quality animals with strong milking genetics, who have good temperaments, are well-socialized and dam or bottle raised, as we think is best. We test our whole herd yearly for CAE, CL, Johnes and Brucellosis. ADGA registerable kids, and some registerable with AGS as well. This year, all our senior does have participated in DHIR (milk test) . This is our second year of Linear Appraisal as well. We are working on getting all of our bucks' DNA on file.
