About Bannerfield Farm Nigerian Dwarf Goats
After a few years of owning a variety of goats, we settled on the Nigerian Dwarf breed for their sweet personalities, small size and milk production. We believe that the Nigerian Dwarf is the ideal dairy and pet goat for anyone — even suburbanites. Our Nigerian Dwarf herd has been carefully selected from much study and mentoring from established Nigerian Dwarf breeders. Although we are still learning, we are striving to produce proven animals and to produce that proof by participating in DHIR and hopefully soon, Linear Appraisal. Each choice we make for our herd; in management, new animals, breeding pairs and retained animals, is made to support our focused goal of superior milk production. We do show, but mostly for fun and simply to enjoy the goats and other people involved in dairy goat herding. We have found that showing, as rewarding as it can be, does not truly prove the production or confirmation of an animal - it only shows how a goat subjectively compared to animals that were there that day. With that said, we are so pleased that many of our animals have shown well and will continue to show for fun and to learn. However, we will be making strides to continue to focus on DHIR and Linear Appraisal. Our goats are registered with the ADGA and AGS. We try to actively participate in the American Nigerian Dwarf Dairy Goat Assocation (ANDDA) and we do not support any height increase in any Nigerian Dwarf standard. We welcome visitors to our farm to see why these miniature dairy goats are such a delight. We are also happy to answer questions about our herd management and disease testing. I (Angel) am a licensed veterinary technician that spent my initial practice years in large animal medicine. We also have several wonderful veterinarians who help us with any medical issues of our herd.

If you would like to place a reservation, please click on the reserve button or email us. We do not require a deposit to make a reservation. Once a reservation has been made, you will be contacted when the kids are born. You will have 5 days to decide if you want to purchase the kid. At that time, a $100 deposit must be received within 7 days and will be required to hold the kid. The kid will then be able to be picked up at between 10 and 12 weeks of age. If the kid is not picked up by 13 weeks without prior notice, the deposit will be kept by us and the kid will be for sale again.
For sales of adult goats, we require a $150 deposit to hold the goat. The adult goat must be picked up within 30 days. After 30 days a boarding fee of $2.00 per day will apply. If after 45 days the goat is still not picked up by the buyer the goat will be placed back up for sale and buyer will lose deposit.
With kids or adults, once a deposit is received, it is non-refundable. Bannerfield Farm reserves the right to keep the kid or the adult. In that case, the deposit will be refunded.
The remaining balance must be paid in full before the goat leaves the premises. This includes the cost of the animal, any potential transportation fees and boarding fees if any, and any health certificate fees, if required. While we do accept checks for deposits as they have time to clear, we will not accept checks at time of pick up.
We guarantee our goats to be physically sound and healthy and free from disqualifying faults at time of sale.
There are many environmental factors that remain out of our control after the animal leaves our farm that can affect the animal's health and soundness. Therefore, we cannot offer any guarantees after the animal leaves our farm. All sales are final. Please ask if you have any questions pertaining to our sales policy.
