    My daughter has a Nubian Goat buck that has won grand champion and other titles for 4H and other shows. A woman from the same show circuit wants to breed our buck with one of her does and pay us a stud fee. Any ideas on a stud fee price? Don't want to just give it away, but also don't want to overdue the price.

    I'd look on your local craigslist or such and see what comparable bucks are standing for in your area.

    No idea whatsoever as to stud fee, but good luck at the show. Give us an update on how he does.

    Nubians are seasonal breeders, so you are nearing the end of breeding season now. You may have to do a stud fee this coming fall/winter around $40 for a hand breeding or a little less to just have him run with her with a period of time.

    Even if you know this person, I would work up a contract in the event that there are problems.

    What if their doe becomes sick? What if she doesn't get bred?

    Include that in your contract as a disclosure to prevent any issues down the road with "he said/she said".
