Boer goat

The Boer goat is a breed of goat that was developed in South Africa in the early 1900s for meat production Boer goats commonly have white bodies and distinctive brown heads. Some Boer goats can be completely brown or white.The Boer has proved to be a fast growing and hardy breed for Indian climates and conditions and thousands of goat keepers from Maharashtra and other States such as Tamil Nadu and Madhya Pradesh have benefited by crossbreeding their goats with the Boer breed. With good feeding, Boer kids attain weights of 25-30 kg in 5-6 months Mature Boer bucks weigh 110–135 kg and mature does weigh 90–100 kg.

While purebred bucks are usually preferred for breeding purposes, it is common to use crossbred does for kid production, with the resulting offspring being 7/8 or more Boer. Common crosses are Boer x Spanish goat, Boer x Angora goat, Boer x Kiko goat, and Boer x Nubian goat, Boer x Sirohi, Boer x Osmanabadi, and Boer x Jamnapari.
