The Boer goat is a relatively newcomer to the American Continent only making its way here in the 1990s. This goat has a high meat to bone ratio making it an excellent choice as a meat animal. It is an excellent companion to both cattle, horses and sheep, helping to turn rough pasture into productive grasslands. It loves both brush and multiflora rose, eagerly gobbling up plants those other animals will walk past.
I've been raising Boers since 2002. After many years of breeding registered stock, focus was turned onto keeping a strong commercial herd. In the 20 years of breeding, I have worked to develop my herd into one that is hardy, thrives on pasture, has strong mothering instincts and good confirmation. Along with lots of color! I believe I have done so. The does are all fullblood or purebred boers that are easy to handle. The buck kids consistently wean in the 40# range at 8 weeks, the doelings not far behind. All of this with minimal grain being fed as I want an animal that can feed and support itself if given the pasture to do so.
