Boer Goats

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. 

Did you know that up to 75% of the worlds population eats goat meat? Did you know that from September 2022-23 the US imported over $94 million in sheep/goat products? Did you also know that according to the USDA goat meat is lower in calories, fat and cholesterol than chicken, beef or pork? Final fun fact, per pound live weight market prices have been higher for goats than beef in the last several years  

I've been raising Boers since 2002. After many years of breeding registered stock, focus was turned to 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. I make every effort to be present for each birth and handle the kids immediately. 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.
