I raise Boer goats and have done well but I am hearing that selling sheep are more profitable at times. Like if u have a 60lb. Goat and a 60lb sheep you will supposably get more money for the sheep....is that true?
Ohhh no you did not talk about my Boer goats like that lol. Boers must be different from one area to the next. You are not the first who has not been impressed with the breed but have never had the issues others have. Any how good post up till the end ;pLocation has a lot to do with it as well. But here is the main factor. Sheep as a whole are.... well.... stupid and can be a pain in the butt to maintain in terms of vaccinations, hoof trimming, catching and loading. The only smart sheep I have ever had the pleasure of meeting, where those who had been raised with goats. Now with that being said, boars are on the low side of goat intelligence but are still vastly smarter then sheep. So I would guess research your area (locale livestock sales) to see what the going rates are and sell accordingly.
Let the flaming commence
I need to ship my goats there to sell if that's what you got. Pigmys here are about $50 tops.the market at Easter/passover for lambs is very high, the rest of the year it sucks. goats are high at all the muslim holidays, if you plan to sell for that they must be intact with horns, so breed and sell accordingly. i sold an old pygmy buck at one of the holidays and he brought big bucks even though i know that the guy who bought him wanted a friendly buck to breed his does, and fred was just the ticket which made me feel better about selling him. he had huge horns and the muslim buyers ran him up i think i bought him for $50 kept him for 3 years and sold him for$175.
