The Meat Goat
THE SMOKE RIDGE 2015 KIDS ARE GROWING VERY WELL!
Please click here to watch a video of some of the Spanish-Boer composite doelings that are available this year. The video shows our partners' herd using a bridge to cross an irrigation ditch. Watch how the guardian dogs and llama interact with the goats and people! 2015 doelings are tagged with a yellow tag in the right ear, wethers in the left ear. Yearling does have a red tag in their right ear, so you can see how well they have grown since last Spring.
Check out our Goats Available page and reserve your 2015 kids today, so you won't regret having missed out!
Smoke Ridge is your source for meat goats that work FOR YOU. Our
goats are raised on fresh or baled 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 the Spring, raising an average
of 1.9 kids each. 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
electric fences, 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, triplets (or quads!) from dams
who display excellent maternal traits. Smoke Ridge breeds pure
Spanish as well as Spanish-Boer/Savannah composite-breed goats. Selection is
for efficiency of production, excellent 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.
