Boar Goats

Boer Goat breeding stock:

  • Ideally, the station can carry between 200 and 250 breeding females at any given time.  This would result in about 100 gimmers and 100 bucks being sold to farmers each year.
  • For the stocking mentioned above, at least 100 ha would be required for grazing; 20 ha would be under browse species and 20 ha would be required to grow maize for energy source for the stock.
  • Currently, the Institute is not meeting demand for breeding stock from clients.  Additional investment to upscale stock production would improve supply.
  • The Institute is in the process of meeting due deligence for registration to be in the Boer Goat Breeders Society
