    Dew, Texas
    Hello to everyone. My name is Fred VanderMartin and my wife Gwen and I run a commercial operation 2 miles east of beautiful downtown Dew, Texas. We have raised Boer and Boer X goats for close to 8 years and raise our goats for the market wether, breeding stock, and meat markets. We are members of the ABGA, IBGA,AMGA, East Texas Goat Raisers Assn., and the one most dear to our hearts, the Freestone County Goat Breeders Association. Gwen is the Treasurer of the FCGBA and I am the advertising and events coordinator volunteer guy. I also do the Ad work for the ETGRA. I write the Goat Gossip column which appears in several local, area, and national publications. under the auspices of the FCGBA. The goat gossip is a general information column in which I share my experiences with my stock and the crazy life a goat rancher can lead, and I try to promote the caprine industry in every way possible. Our web adress is www.rvbboers.com, stop in for a visit. Bye, for now, Fred V.

    Hi and welcome from a fellow Texan!

    I am located 2 miles from lovely downtown Joshua. :eek:)

    I also raise boers and have a mixture of registered and nonregisterd.

    Percentages and fullbloods.

    This is a great forum and it sounds like you will be adding to it with your knowledge and background.
