Emirates 24/7 ^ | Tuesday, September 10, 2013

Biggest livestock deal in Kingdom

A Saudi businessman bought a white goat for a whopping SR13 million (Dh12.5 million) in the biggest livestock deal in the oil-rich Gulf Kingdom.

The owner said his male goat fetched that sum because it is one of the rarest and “most beautiful” goat breeds in the region.

“It was the largest single deal to involve the sale of a sheep in the Kingdom,” Arar newspaper said in a report from the Saudi capital Riyadh.

“This should not be encouraged ... especially when more than two million Syrian refugees languish in makeshift tents in Turkey, Jordan and Lebanon,” said one commentator. “We should use the God-given money in a useful way and for the betterment of humanity,” said another.

I think it’s main selling features were the long eyelashes and short erect tail.

Must be sold to some towel-headed Prince or something that just "loves" goats!

Here’s a scary thought: Given the Bizarro World that he lives in, that goat may actually be a rational investment.

You may be right. I haven’t heard of any quantitative goat easing. No goat inflation.

Joking aside, I can see a breeder paying that for a unique animal with desirable characteristics. Goat hair is where we get cashmere fabric, and I can see a particularly pure white having commercial value.

Looks like a Saanen buck, which are all white anyway, and a crummy one at that. He’s go for about 300.00 here. Terrible topline, high in the rump and hocks too straight, just to name a few breed flaws.

It’s just that it’s such an inflated price. They obviously just want him because he’s all white. A really good Saanen buck with outstanding conformation and pedigree would go for about a grand here.

Might have more to do with the devalued state of the money than the actual value of the goat.

Just google image “Saanen dairy goat”. We raised that breed for over 20 years. Been out of it (breeding for 4 years)our last girl Mira who was 10 sadly we had to have the vet out down a couple of weeks ago. Yep I could have made a bundle I suppose.
