    Goats!

    They do! We believe they should hang a good carcass, as well as look spectacular on the hoof. That's the reason we scan all kids at 6 months and a large part of the index we built. There is a serious lack of true carcass merit in the breed as a whole right now in this country. For example...

    It's getting crazier

    I avoid just about any sort of political statement these day, be it putting a sign up in my yard or a post on social media. It's just not worth it. I have several friends (like in real life, not just on social media) who are either so far right or so far left, I have to constantly mute them...

    Goats!

    And finally, another picture my sister snagged of Danny. I call it "waiting on the rain"

    Goats!

    Article written by Dr Homeyer on our symposium. He's done a couple on our program and my one sister (she a true asset to the boer industry). Always exiting when someone so renowned takes interest in a project!

    Goats!

    Here's all three of our current herd bucks. Butt to the camera is Jack, 4 1/2 (Enobled). Facing is Danny, a 2 1/2 year old Jack son (a hair away from Enoblement). And close to camera is Baby Shark aka Doot Doot, 1 1/2 year old Jack son, never shown, but scanned a superior carcass and is tough as...

    My daughter working her show goats.

    Goats!

    This is a doe we sold for super cheap as a baby. Needless to say, we had to get her bought back. She's been wining a bit this fall and earned enough points to push her dam to Enoblement!

    Goats!

    This is a young buck we sold 1/2 interest on in our sale. He's really doing well and racking up titles with limited showing.

    Goats!

    Daughter and niece on the catwalk in the yards. Had to be sure to get this shot, since the catwalk is only history now! This is a young doe we took that was very competitive.

    Goats!

    Since I haven't posted about our Boers in a while, I thought I'd give an update. Since last fall, we've really been doing some big things. In November, we hosted the great Dr Fred Homeyer to lecture about 75 breeders in the area. He taught the history of the breed and conducted judging...

    What is the correct length show stick?

    You need to take both her height and size of animal shown into consideration. When it comes to showmanship, you really shouldn't have to move those back feet much, so that's really not the singular way to gauge the size of stick needed. Having said that, a good showman will need to be able to...

    Daughter's herd

    Thanks Jeanne! I'm not a formally taught judge (beyond high school judging teams), but I thoroughly enjoy evaluating livestock... And dogs and horses!

    Please do! And thanks!

    Daughter's herd

    Thanks Jeanne! I take that as high praise given the great quality your herd produces! I agree with the marbling in Angus. My other big beef with Angus is the general approach to leg and foot structure. I think they still have miles to go to fix the foot structure in that breed as a whole. In an...
