If it were me and they were mine then no I would not breed them this fall. The earliest I would breed them would be *maybe* spring 2014. I say maybe because even then I would be hesitant. I usually breed mine around 15-18 months. However some people choose to breed them earlier than that. A good rule of thumb is anywhere from 80-100lbs for boers. But you have to use good judgment and look at them to see if they physically ready to grow another life inside of them while they are still growing themselves
