Default Mini Boers

I've been breeding small Boer goats. They look like Boers, and are the size of nigerians. Is there a Registery for these guys? All I can find are mini dairy breeds.

Thanks, Becky

No registry for mini boers..... Haven't ever seen or heard of them?

Do you have any pics?

^Yeah, would love to see pics! I've always wanted someone to start mini boers. They just sound neat.

I too would like pictures

I would like this option if it maybe made a better dual purpose goat. I want a milk goat/meat goat that is not over large. Maybe it would improve the milking without adding height like most of the dairy breeds would.

Can you tell?

I would also love to see this, with the meat market around here. But isn't this why they breed Nubians into Boer lines? To make more milk, yet still have meat? Just curious. I don't really konw, but am interested!

Hi Becky,,
like the rest of the Boer goat breeders on here and a Boer goat breeder myself,,,I would also like to see pictures of what you have produced with the Boer breed... Also,, how long have you been breeding them to have been able to get such a small size?? Inquiring minds are wondering,, Are these pure breed Boers you have down sized or crosses with another goat breed???
Betty

I just assumed it was a nigi cross maybe not though...

And yes the nubian/boer cross is interesting to me, but I don't want boer hefty with nubian tall I want small, solid, and milkable... you know, cake and eat it too!
I am also fond of the long ears.
