how many boer goat breeders are members here at Goat Spot? :grouphug:
howdy come on in~!!!!
i raise boers, in Alaska. there are a few boer breeders here.
that is good to know,my husband wants to move to Alaska so so bad,,he watches the crab fisherman and ice road truckers,,he is hooked....
what is it like where you live?
I'm a Boer breeder in central Oklahoma. I focus on breeding quality breeding stock for show, and also raise the wethers that I don't keep as breeding stock for meat. I've had goats for years and years, but the Boers I just got into about a year ago, we invested alot in getting some good lines, and I'm totally hooked on this breed.
wow, you do have real nice goats ,and bloodlines ,all your goats beautiful ,, :drool:,we are looking for a show quality buck or buckling at this time ,wish you had some for sale and were closer, I live in California.
I have boers too- I'm in northern California.
i have some boers i use for meat and show. i'm in ca but i only have 4 does right now
howdy enjoytheride :wave:
you are in humbolt co ca,,, ,do you have any show quality bucks for sale?
hi SDK darn only does ~!
Oh well still looking
yea i just got started out like 2 months ago. my friend melissa at lovenmranch.com has given me three does an i have a 50% doe from rebecca at moonstone ranch. i need to breed two of my does soon. melissa might have a buck for sale, she has pretty nice goats
SDK lovenmranch.com looked up her site she only has does on her for sale page
yea she's advertising the does that she put into a sale.
email her and ask. she usually has kids every few months.
hi toth, we are in Wasilla- Palmer area, in The Matanuska Valley, about half an hour north of Achorage (our largest city). Right now its approx. 63 degrees, we've had a very rainy summer, usually it gets up to about 76. the winters where we are at are dark, and not too cold, the lowest temp this winter was -39.
but in the interior (where ArcticGoats is) its gets REAL cold -50 ish? and hot in the summer 90ish (arctic goats, please correct me :wink: , i've never lived up there)
Yeah my dad knows some of the crab fisherman on deadliest catch, mostly the captains, he met out in King Salmon (where we used to live, out on the aleutian Chain)
We don't know any ice truckers though. Theyre up north.
But our genetics here are , well, not very good. Boers are becoming popular, but nobody has show quality. We had our first AK USBGA sanctioned show with a grand total of 12 goats, and 5 breeders. which we thought was a great turn out. But by next year i hope to have a lower 48 buckling, and a few more fullbloods!
I have a 90% Boer 10% Spanish buck and 2 saanen / Boer cross does and an alpine/nubian/boer doe.
I breed them for milk and meat
I have 2 high percentage boer does, and a high % boer buckling. Im in Arkansas
Hi Alaska, sounds like you live in a wonderful part of Alaska , :thumb:
your dad knows some of the crab fisherman on deadliest catch, mostly the captains,that is really neat. Do you watch the show? Captain Phil Harris from the Cornelia Marie is having major health issues. I pray he will get better. ray:
Real glad to hear they are starting up goat shows in Alaska, the boer goat industry is spreading,that is a good thing, but the economy is not helping us breeders right now that is the bad. Hopefully it will get better for all of us soon I hope and ray:
thanks for the info I really enjoyed it Alaska :sun:

Joining together to make the goat industry blossum
thanks SDK e-mailed her she does have some .I am shopping around right now ,,
she said :ROFL: that you were her partner in crime ,,,so,so,,funny~! :slapfloor:
We just got our first Boers! They are percentages, but we are looking for a fullblood buck (or bucking). There aren't many Boer owners in PA.

SDK Good to hear
