If you want goat meat Boer goats are the goat for you. They are fast growing and hardy. They are larger framed than a dairy goat and seem to be a bit more stubborn. Boer goat 4-h shows are growing in popular and is an easy project for kids to do. We started both a Boer and dairy goat show in our town last year and it has grown! We even had a few 4-hers start with bottle babies for their fair project.
