I know a lot depends on circumstances (location, advertising etc. ) but I just wondered if most of you meat goat breeders make any money at it? And I'm not asking are they making you millions. All I'm asking is if you break even and have a little extra besides? (Probably kind of a touchy question, but there it is).

Yes, I do make money on them, more than break even. My friend donna does very well with them too. She had over 14 kids born this year, most were doelings and she sells them to show homes at $1000 per weaned doeling.

Our prices go all over the map depending on if they go for meat or show; weight or conformation, if they are registered etc.
But generally 150 up at weaning for meat.
Boer/Nub cross makes for excellent growth.
