Is this goat right for you?

The basics:
Boers and Nubians are often crossed to create a meat goat with exceptional growth, carcass, meat quality and meat color.

The Boer Goat was developed in the early 1900's by Dutch farmers in South Africa. Boers are known for being docile, having high fertility and a fast growth rates. They are a popular breed raised for meat.

The Nubian or Anglo-Nubian Goat was developed in England by crossing native British milking goats (Old English Milch and Zariby) with Nubian breeds supposedly from the Middle East, Northeastern Africa, Egypt, Russia, or India. Their warm climate heritage accounts for their longer breeding season than other dairy goats.
