    I've got a good handful of show-quality pregnant Boer and Boers cross does. First due in Janurary last will be probably May. A bunch of the babies will be for sale.
    What are you planning on doing with them?

    Let me know if you want pictures. I don't have them listed yet as I am not ready to let the buck go until January. You could search for one of my threads called " freezer camp or the breeding pen?" it is about the buckling and has pics from this summer. I'd give you a link but I don't know how.:eek:

    We're in Kansas and we will have quality commercial does AND bucks in march. Should have some real nice buck kids this year.

    Too far from you. We travel to WI, but that is the furthest West we normally get.

    Good luck on your search.
    Remember, "A meat herd is built from the ground up." Look for really good legs.

    We are going to sell all does we have this year (9 pregnant Mama's) and most of the boys. We'e got a couple Fullbloods and the rest are Boer/Kiko crosses. All very nice show quality
    The only problem is you state that you are in Washington, I'm located in FL. I don't think that'd work out well. :(

    I got my buck from Copper Creek Boer Goats and I absolutely love him!
    Another local breeder is Gorge-us Boer goats (located in the Columbia gorge)
    They're the only people I can think of off of the top of my head.
    If you don't see any listed as 'for sale' on Copper Creek's web site I would shoot Becki an email if you're interested. I'm not sure how often the site gets updated. And I know that Gorge-us boer goats has some up for sale but I haven't dealt with them at all so I don't know much about their animals. Good Luck!!
