Boer Goat for Sale 45-50kg
The Boer breed is characterized by a red head and red on at least a portion of the neck, with a white body. They have large pendulous ears. Some breeders have chosen to breed and promote solid color Boers, but there is little scientific evidence that they have any unique merit in productivity. Several Boer breed associations exist in the United States and each uses a set of standards related to appearance and function. The standards include characteristics that are acceptable, discriminated against and disallowed. Details are available through breed association Web sites. The breed was developed and improved in the Republic of South Africa.
Docility, high fertility and a fast growth rate are some of the traits that set the Boer goat apart in the purebred and commercial segments of the American meat goat industry. With the characteristic red head, meat goat buyers are able to select for Boer influenced animals and these animals will often generate a premium over other colored goats of similar age and gender.
