Kevin Mocks doeling from Friday Night Fiesta in San Angelo. Here is a little wether maker doe for you Tim.
Flush and ET to recips. The Texas wether game has animals that often sell for over $10k. She could, in theory, cover her cost and make money first flush.How do you recoup your costs for something like that? Are goat breeders doing embryo transfers? Or is it the male offspring that bring back the return on money?
I know a Nigerian sold for $8,000.00 at Nationals and thought that was crazy....lol.
The judge at the meat goat judging explained to the crowd and 4Hers that the brisket matters less than the loins. Much more expensive cuts of meat come from the loin area, so a goat with a great loin and weaker brisket gets more points than one with a strong brisket and weaker loins.
At least they're all smiling! It always cracks me up when you see the photos of people who have just won, say, Nationals, and they've all got very stern, rather annoyed looking "our goat just won something. we're thrilled." expressions.For $33k I would of thought they would of oh I dont know, put a little effort into the taking of the photo...
