aboutus

Welcome to Rox-Wil Boer Goats Website. We are excited to begin our new adventure raising, breeding and selling quality Boers of award winning bloodlines that you would be proud to own and show. We have selected our bucks and does from quality herds with proven genetics with consideration to the American Boer Goat Standards. We will carefully breed and cull our herd to bring excellence to the breed. Our herd includes full bloods, purebreds and percentages. Come join our progress and invest in your future with us. Our farm is nested in the rolling hills of  beautiful Waynesville Ohio, home of the famous  Ohio Sauerkraut Festival, and now will become famous for our quality Boers.

Our Brood Does

Does used to breed show-quality goats are normally very large, as show goats are expected to be of large stature. For commercial meat production, medium-sized does are normally preferred, as they produce the same number of kids, but require less feed to do so. As a general rule, the more kids born per doe, the greater profit margins for the owner. Boer goats are polyestrous (they can breed throughout the year), and they reach sexual maturity at five months of age. A typical breeding program is to produce three kid crops every two years, meaning the does are pregnant for five months, nurse their kids for three months, and then are rebred. Multiple births are common, and a 200% kid crop is achievable in managed herds. Usually, first-time does will have one kid, but it is possible for them to have more. After that, they will usually have two kids.

Our Breeding Bucks

The most critical part of any meat goat operation is the selection of a herd sire (breeding buck). A high-quality buck can produce high-quality offspring even when mated with an average doe. Boer goats tend to gain weight at about the same rate as their sire, so a buck from a proven fast-growing bloodline will command the highest price, as its offspring will tend to also be fast growers. The primary market for slaughter goats is a 22–36 kg (50-80 lb) kid; kids should reach marketable size at weaning age. The kid of a proven fast-growing sire might weigh 36 kg (80 lb) at 90 days.
