Hendrix Farms features full blood South African Boer goats (and percentages).
This South African breed probably resulted from crossbreeding of native goat’s raised by Bantu tribes and various European and Asian goats brought in by Dutch immigrants. In the 1800′s, SA goat farmers started selecting for compact, muscular, short-haired carcasses, good fertility, and short hair combined with a very distinct color pattern (white body and red head). In 1959, breed standards were adopted and they became a recognized breed. Boer goats were introduced into the US in the early 1990s. Under good nutritional conditions, Boer goats’ crossbreeds produce outstanding weight gains and carcasses.
