Goat breeders and producers are constantly getting requests to come to different sales and auctions to buy new goats or to sell off some of their own stock. However, not all of these sales are created equally. In truth, only graded sales, where each goat is checked for quality and the buyer knows exactly what he or she is buying, are worth attending or participating in.

Graded sales offer animals that are the best of the best, guaranteed to breed better herds or to produce more meat or other products for profit. Breeders who are interested in attending one of these sales and getting a great deal on a superb goat should check local listings to see when the next sale is. These graded sales are most frequently held in Kentucky, a state known for being dedicated to high quality goat breeding, sales, and production, so listings in this state should have special attention paid to them.
