This is a National Competition and a stock evaluation, over-all, as they fit the phenotype of the Boer Goat, divided by color coat and pattern. We will use the term “American Kalahari Red” for the solid red goats. White/Grey Boer Goats will be classified as Savanna.
Dividing stock by color color coat gives the stock an opportunity to be evaluated by like animals. The Boer, Savanna, Kalahari Red, are all animals developed by selection, it is by phenotype. We are thankful that the South African Boer people took the time to developed the stock and our event is the opportunity for those American breeders that want a fair comparison of their stock, where they truly are being compared. Our mission isn’t to tell anyone else what to do, but to bring people together that can share their information and help others on their way. If you want to help, join the fun, because that is what it is.
It is a learning opportunity. The point of this is to acknowledge the breeder. We want you to bring your stock. What you use as production stock, and the kids you raise as replacement stock. You will share your lineage of goats. At the same time, we show how everyone can work together to move a phenotype forward, based upon selection. Sharing ideas about management, feeding, and genetics used are part of the event along with so much more.
