    I’ve got a heard of ~15 Boers, all wonderfully sweet. I’ve been wanting a Zebu and found a cow-calf pair along with a bull for sale—not sure if we would get all or just the pair. I can’t separate my land to provide additional pens so if I got them they would have to live harmoniously with my...

    At the moment we have five goats, 2 4. mo. old boer wethers, a 5 year old Alpine doe and her 3 mo. old doe twins, and one cow. We are putting a chest bar up in front of the goat stall so the cow can't get in tight quarters with the goats. My question is, can we have the cow out in the pasture...

    My boer goat has some mite issues. What happened was, he started itching around his legs and they began to scab and lose hair. I thought it was hoof rot and treated with LA200 injected. Now realizing its mites, because he is itching in other places other than his hoof, i need to give him...
  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    Our Adult Alpine doe, who has 3 mo. old girl twins, won't let our 4 mo. old boer wethers in her stall. We are trying to integrate the boers with the Alpines. They have already been introduced in the pasture but she won't let them eat with her or be in a stall with her and her kids. She headbutts...
  9. Beginners Goat Raising
    I have twin Alpine kids that I am weaning, (this is our first time btw), and we also have two boer kids that are around 4 months old. The Alpine kids are 3 months old. The boers are a little bit bigger than the Alpines but I haven't seen the boers get aggressive with them in the pasture. Should...

    Many of you have probably read about Ruby on one thread or another. :D She is my favorite doe for many reasons. One being her personality! I have always joked that she is part dog... She sure acts like one sometimes! She gets stuck on her back almost everyday, and it looks like she's rolling...
