The Meat Goat
The last 90 yearling does are in the midwest, and think that it's heaven compared to Montana!
Our next batch of kids is arriving any moment, so please contact us to start scheduling delivery trips in July for family groups or September for does or doelings after "weaning." Bucks travel well at any time, other than the three weeks per year when they are busy making the next generation of money-making meat goats.
Smoke Ridge is your source for meat goats that work FOR YOU. Our
goats are raised on natural forage only (no feeding of concentrates or grain is necessary) and convert pasture, brush, and weeds into a meat
for which the demand exceeds the supply. And the demand for goat meat
continues to grow.
Our does have their kids in the pasture in Spring (here in Montana), raising an average
of 1.9 kids annually. Kids reach market weight on natural forage in
approximately six months, and thus are ready to be sold when market
prices are typically highest, in fall and winter. Our goats respect
hot-wire (electric fence), are used to being handled by people, and are raised with
livestock guardian dogs. Smoke Ridge bucks are selected for rate of
weight gain, high libido, and are either twins or triplets from dams
who display excellent maternal traits. Smoke Ridge breeds pure
Spanish, Spanish-Boer and Spanish-Savannah composite-breed goats. Selection is
for efficiency of production, strong maternal attributes, and longevity.
Smoke Ridge has been in business since 1991. We operate our business
ethically, we want YOU to be successful, and can deliver goats to you at
cost. We'll help you once you have your goats, and the
new Meat Goat Handbook will be of management and business assistance as
well as showing you almost 300 pictures of the many different kinds,
shapes and sizes of meat goats in the U.S. and overseas. Smoke Ridge
produces and has available for sale breeding goats that give the
highest and longest lasting returns at the lowest possible cost and
expenditure of labor.
