What a nuisance, but how funny they were. She was so patient as I learned how to milk her as well as a surprise when I discovered that goats have only 2 teats. Oh my goodness! so funny same with mine but on the tractor instead. They are noted for being docile, fast-growing, and having high fertility rates. The kidding rate is around 200 percentage, most preferred trait in Boer. Moving right along…. Log in. I am going on my second year with goats and hope to have many many more. Although American purebreds can never be registered as Fullblood (FB), many breeders still use a good American purebred buck with excellent results. My Nubian Onxy, actually I love hearing her scream.because once she was so skiddish and scared because the previous owner dehorn ed her but all m others have their beautiful horns. (But, fencing is essential to prevent predator encounters. Thank you so much!!! It can breed all year long. I guess you shouldn’t get dogs either, because almost all of these reasons are the same as dogs’, You still have to trim a dog’s feet, dogs get out and run away (which some would argue is even worse because goats don’t leave the yard), You have to worm your dog as well, which along with trimming you can pay your vet to do, you can just rent a buck, or do AI, or artificial insemination which you can have your vet do, and if you give them things to play with, even just old branches or something to climb on they wont destruct you stuff. I think if we end up doing a bunch of goats again, we’ll definitely do some sort of electric! They get checked out regularly by the vet and they’re incredibly healthy and happy and they give me lots of beautiful milk. The animals are known for quality meat, fast growth, and high reproduction rates. Boer goats are top meat produced among all goats. I have lost a total of three goat sence i started about two yeas ago and it has been heart breaking every time one was a bottle baby, one was one of my does she had kidding troube 6 days before she was dew (i lost her and the kids ) and the othe was from parasites :'(. The pureblood Boer bucks are always in high demand. An American purebred is a Boer goat of 15/16ths Boer blood (F4) for does and 31/32nds blood (F5) for Boer bucks. This is exactly what i was thinking!! I refused to do it one time and discovered WHY milk goats generally should be dehorned. if considering them I urge you try older ones first and please get more than 2… then try babies and watch them grow.. they are all so fun and full of character and will make you happy. Kill the bugs! Boer goat horns are thick and curve backwards. Instead, goats got us. Good 4 u i love animals and wish i could own some farm animals we do have pets a bearded dragon,turtle,kitten,and goldfish is all were allowed to have here in the city but goats ate great but smell awful#!#, Good information I want to start a Goat and sheep farm in India What precaution and arrangements must I make Please help me out, I disagree with it too if your gonna have livestock you have to put work into them you can’t be lazy.
