Sales Policy

  • Non-refundable, but transferable deposit is required, to hold animals
  • Shipping is the cost of the buyer. We may be able to bring the animals to state line for a small fee
  • If buying from out of state, you should consider paying for a veterinarian’s check for transport. This is strongly advised, due to the states laws. otherwise you could be liable for heavy fine or the animals could be confiscated. These vet checks are the cost oft he buyer, but we will be happy to take the animal/s to our vet for you
  • If your animal is left here for an extended period of time, we may ask for feed cost, due to high cost of feed of $2.50/day

(We spend much time and money to produce quality dairy stock who will stand by you and who are usually out of our proven herd. Part of this means that we have to keep some animals from various breeding, in order to prove the herd in dairy.)
