Purebred Boer Buck

Posted Apr 01, 2015

Clyde is a 100% pure Boer buck with enobled lines. (Really good show quality)
I'm going to start this off with how bad he smells. Any Buck (non-castrated male) will "scent" itself by urinating on its own facial ridge. He is hard to contain because of his sheer willpower and stuburness. My herd is contained within an electrified fence that also holds a horse. That won't stop a determined Boer buck. Genetic defects are common in Boers, and a few of his children showed defects. They are strong, hardy and bullheaded animals, but are not always violent. I have had a few problems with Clyde, but he has never hurt me in any way. Boers are meat animals and you cannot beat the taste of goat. Clyde has great meat character, but is too expensive for me to eat.
