You can't go to craigslist without seeing a BOER for sale. ( well I mean if your looking at the goats) has anyone else noticed? I guess there just a popular breed right now.
Thank you so much! That makes a lot of since, hopefully the season will die down soon, i'm ready to get a milking goat. I don't want a Boer!!!!! Thanks for the info!!!!!!!!!!!!Boers are a meat breed and used A LOT in 4H. Right now is the time to buy for 4H which is likely why you see so many of them available. I believe they are also a breed that has a true breeding season so we are just at the tail end of the kidding season for it
Below is current price near us, and that's really good for this time of year. I've seen it go over $4lb in the spring, but haven't paid much attention otherwise as we haven't sold anything at market in a long time.BAH BOERS bring on the mini geughts wave!
That is impressive. It must feel wonderful to you and your kids to raise goats with that value!Below is current price near us, and that's really good for this time of year.

Good 'average' commercial breeding does sell for around $350+, Bucks vary.
Registered does and bucks, for decent quality is $300+.
For higher quality you won't normally touch anything under $800 for a doe, and $500 for a buck.
We sold our registered doe kids last for $300-800, and buck kids $300-650. My son's buck sold for $1500. We just bought 2 new buck kids with 2/3 of the $$ from the adult buck and seller told me if they had been does they would have sold for $2500 each.
That's just in my area... We've had people drive for hours to come and get goats from us. I made a 9hr round trip to pick up our new boys. It's all a gamble of course as with anything. But... Boer goats are doing well
