I put an ad in our local paper..looking for a Boer or Kiko buck to breed my doe to this fall. I got two replies. First: a very nice older lady called and we talked for 1/2 an hour about goats. I told her what I was looking for. A meat type goat to breed my Sanaan doe to so I could get more of a meat type kid from her. She has a Boer/Nubian buck, mostly Boer. She said he throws really nice kids with lots of neat colors. I also thot I would try tanning hides and the colors are a plus! The wethers she butchered last year gave her a high percentage of meat to bone, even out of her Nubian does. She also said to come by any time and check out her facility and ask as many questions as I like. Second: guy calls and says he has two Boer bucks. An older one, he thinks 8-9 years old. Rsgistered, which I don't care about. He said he got him last year as his buck was killed by one of his rams. He said if I wanted him he would sell him to me for $100. He also has a young, about a year, buck that he will be using this year. $25 to breed to him. He was sort of short, just giving out info on his bucks and I did not get the feeling that he wanted to talk goat. Never invited me to come out to his place and look at them. Now, I was not looking to buy a buck, especially and older one at this time. So, if you were looking for a buck and had these two people to choose from, just from the phone conversations who would you choose? I will go to the lady's home and look around as she has had goats for 4 years and her aunt raised them when she was younger. She seemed to know what she was talking about and was super nice. I am still on the fence about the guy. Both will let me come pick up the buck and bring him to my doe. I want to breed to a meat goat. So is a Boer/Nubian a good choice?
