Sales Policy

Reservations

A $50 deposit is required for a kid reservation. This deposit is non-refundable unless we are unable to fill your reservation. In that case, the deposit will can be rolled over to a different breeding or next season, or it can be refunded. If you are interested in a kid but do not wish to leave a deposit, we will keep a "wish list" but these will not be filled until all other paid reservations are filled.

Kids for sale will be available on a first come, first serve basis. If you are interested in reserving a kid from a particular breeding, please notify us and you will be placed on the waiting list for that breeding. Once the kids are born, the first person on the list will be notified. If we do not hear from you in 48 hrs, we move on to the next person in line. If you decide to purchase the kid, we require 1/2 down to hold the kid until pickup.  The balance is due at or prior to pick-up/shipping. Buyer is responsible for any other fees such as health certificate, any other testing desired, and shipping. If you have something particular you are wanting (show quality, heavy milker, blue eyes, etc) let us know and we will notify you if one comes available.

Bottle kids must be picked up by 4 weeks of age. Adults and weaned kids must be picked up within 2 weeks of sale unless other arrangements have been made. Animals not picked up on time will be charged a boarding fee of $2 a day.

Sunny Daze Farm reserves the right to retain any kid born on the farm.

Guarantees

Animals are guaranteed healthy when they leave our farm. Since we cannot control any stress that may occur as a result of shipping or the animals environment and care once it leaves our farm, we cannot offer any further guarantees. In the case of infertility, a replacement or refund will be given contingent apon a veterinary statement that the origin is genetic and the animal has received adequate care.

 Disease Testing

We typically do annual whole herd testing for CAE on breeding age does and mature bucks. Since we bring in so few new animals at this point, most years we spot test for Johne's disease using Elisa as we pregnacy test, although we are switching over to the more accurate fecal PCR testing instead. We just wrapped up our most recent whole herd testing (mature animals) for both CAE & Johne's February 2022 (negative).   We have tested for CL in the past although we no longer regularly test for that one due to inaccuracies in blood testing. We have never had any cases of CL in our herd. We quarantine and test any new animals entering the herd for CAE, Johne's and CL. Our management style of pulling kids and bottle raising with pastuerized milk also helps keep risk down for many communicable diseases. We will gladly perform any additional testing at buyers expense prior to purchase!

Shipping

Due to the increasingly difficult airline regulations, we will only ground ship animals. Buyer is responsible for arranging transport but we will certainly help assist if needed. Buyer is responsible for all transport and veterinary fees for health certificates.

Price of Kids

Kid prices are usually listed on the kidding schedule for each breeding. We will not change price if a kid is pre-reserved, but after the doe freshens and is evaluated prices on available kids will be adjusted accordingly. All wethers are $150 each or $125 each when purchasing two or more.
