Took a leap of faith and put a 7 mo doe in a meat class. Nothing to lose...not much tail pigmentation, little color on ears or head. Nothing to lose. Long & level, good legs & everything else correcto mundo. She came out Reserve Grand! The other 4 we brought didnt do well but just being with other goat ppl was well worth it, I learned a whole lot..watched a couple penned next to us talking about all kinds of aspects of goat meat industry.
