I am trying something I guess rather odd with our goats. I want to have dairy milkers but we also want goats that can help clear out some of our inaccessable acreage. We have 7 acres we can't use because you need a machete to walk even two feet! Lots of honeysuckle and briars that our goaties just love. Anyway, so we were thinking that we could breed up a cross between our dairy Alpines and our neighbors Boer goats. This season's breedings are set already as crosses, but we need to find a buck for permanent residence as driving in the family sedan with goats in the back on their way too and from stud services due to the truck being in the shop is not an option long term. Need to know if this is a feasible idea or if I just need to get a registered alpine and call it good. (Our girls are both registered pure alpine) A couple of questions, would love ya'lls' opinion: 1. Do you think we could milk the daughters and get any reasonable yeild? 2. Do you all think we will get what they call hybrid vigor or just confused goats? 3. What kinds of challenges do you think we would encounter if we follow this line of breeding? 4. What in the world would you call a Boer/Alpine cross? An Al-Bore? Borpine? Any thoughts?
