I used to raise the boers, but really never got the knack for the showing. Loved showing, but it was more hassle and a lot of the shows are fixed around here. :angry: Anyways, I love my nigerians, but I miss the thrill of getting those kids as big as they can. But I want to be more in commercial meat goats. I find commercial does sell really good around here, and wethers for show and slaughter. I need some GREAT advice and pointers on fulfilling this 'dream'. So heres what I want to know! --What kind of does? Anybodies opinion is welcome on what crosses are best! --What would you feed if does were on pasture for most of the time? --How many does would you need for the 'business' to profitable (money?! what money?!) --How to keep the does in top shape even if they kid twice a year (usually I wouldn't do that, but if they are kept in tip top condition?) --How many can I have on 10 acres? --Best time to have kids? (Not gonna do 4H! No Feb kiddings for me please!) LOL Thank you all!
