Boer goats based on my own and bred...

This is another breed I had but went with the Myotonic full time. I still do, and always will have my 50% Cheryl but we cut back on the Boers. This is a good breed and I have seen some great goats of the breed. I found them a little harder to keep, like to get out. I also seemed to worm more with some then with others. Some of my boers were also a bit harsher to one another and the Fainters then I would have liked. Now I did cross the Myotonic buck on the boer does I had and got some VERY nice kids. Over all I would say this is the #2 choice in my opinion of the meat goats and would say to cross this breed with the Myo for meat would be great for many. This breed and crossing also is what helped and started the Texmaster breed.
