Diana McQuitty Bill Woodward
McQuitty-Farm is a small herd of Saanens and Lamanchas located in southwest or central Ohio depending on what farm they are at although all goats have been at Bill's for the past 5 years. Our primary focus is on winning in the show ring although we feel high production and good temperaments are no less important. Enclosed you will find pedigrees, pictures of our breeding stock and the carefully planned matings for 2014. Although there are prices listed for all kids some bucklings will not be offered for sale, only those from carefully selected does whom we would keep and show ourselves. This year celebrates our 33 rd year owning and enjoying dairy goats.
We believe that superior management is just as important as a fancy pedigree and that it allows our animals to reach their full genetic potential. The kids are taken away from their dams at birth and fed heat treated colostrum or colostrum powder and pasteurized goat milk until about three months of age. The entire herd is fed a 16% sweet feed and alfalfa hay. Grain is not introduced to kids until weaning. Loose mineral, salt blocks and sodium bicarbonate is readily available at all times. Our kids are treated aggressively for coccidiosis since Ohio can be extremely wet during spring time. Bo-Se, De worming and Copper boluses are given bi-annually and as needed on an individual basis.
Although the majority of the kid crop is offered for sale, we reserve the right to retain any kid as a herd replacement. We require a non refundable $100 deposit to hold your choice of kid up to four weeks of age. The deposit will be returned or transferred to another kid if we choose not to sell the kid or if the kid is not born. Vet work, shipping crates and shipping are the responsibility of the buyer and must be completed before the kid leaves the farm. We ship from various local airports but prefer CMH although we encourage you to pick up your kid at the farm so you can see the relatives and family members of the kid you ordered. All checks should be made payable to Diana McQuitty.
We will be offering the majority of the 2014 kid crop for your consideration. If there is no photo of an animal that interests you please contact Bill and he will give you an honest evaluation of the animals strengths and weaknesses. We do understand that buying an animal sight unseen can be an expensive and risky investment and we truly want you to be happy with your purchase. We do not guarantee every animal to be a show winner when they mature so we only replace animals that are reproductively unsound. Written documentation from a licensed veterinarian of sterility will get you a replacement although shipping costs and vet work are the responsibility of the owner of the animal being replaced. No offspring may be registered from returned animals. Once an animal leaves our possession it is the responsibility of the buyer!
