BOER's are the best Meat Goats

Boer Goat Meat

Boer goat meat is known throughout the world as a delicacy. Goat meat imports are increasing annually at a high rate (approximately 30 million lbs per year). Goat meat is a very lean and tender meat, thus the appeal to health-conscious consumers is rising. Goat meat is mainly sought out by ethnic groups and is the preferred meal for celebrations in some cultures.

Meat goats processed at Grande Natural Meat are predominately Boer goats.  Usually castrated males, known as withers are used for meat cuts, but sometimes young females work as well. Boer goats originated from Dutch farms is South Africa.  In the early 1900's the Boer goats were bred primarily for meat purposes. The Boer meat goat carries the advantage of having a high growth rate and the ability to adapt to several different environments. The Boer meat goat also has the capability to produce several more pounds of meat than other breeds of goats.

The western US has been favorable for rapid boer goat development.  Grande Meats has so far sourced goats from Idaho, Utah, Colorado and Kansas and future sources may include Texas and New Mexico.

Boer goats are rapid developers and also carry the advantage of having a high fertility rate. Mature females generally weigh anywhere from 180 to 240 pounds. Males have a higher body mass and typically weigh between 200 to 350 pounds. The taste or goat meat is described as being similar to lamb meat. Hence, the word “mutton” is the term used to describe the similarity of lamb and goat meat.

Grande Meats uses very young weanling boers (3 to 4 months old) for whole animal carcasses.  But, when cut meat is desired, young yearling goats (8 to 13 months) fill the bill for delicious, juicy goat meat cuts that are tender and quite tasty.
