Originating from South Africa the Boer goat is the first meat-producing breed of goat in the world. They were first exported to this country in 1988 and The British Boer Goat Society was formed.

Boers are different in appearance from dairy goats. When fully grown they are stocky animals with short legs, a deep, broad chest and a thick rump. When mature at 3-4 years old a buck will weigh between 90 and 120kg, and a doe between 65 and 75kg at 2-3 years of age.
