Savanna

The Savanna is essentially the white Boer Goat. This is another breed that is separated by color where focus of quality can be compared equally.

Please read and follow the Standard from South Africa and the American breed associations.

The Savanna Congress is a National Premier Boer “Savanna” Goat event for the USA.

This will be a wonderful learning experience for anyone that is interested in preserving and breeding the Boer goat, regardless of color.

The Savanna Congress is an opportunity to have your stock evaluated and compared without the politics of today’s show arena.  Breeders may enter stock, have them evaluated, and return home to continue your hard work in helping the Boer breed progress.

Stock offered for sale on June 6, 2021 will be evaluated by the judges on June 5th.

If a breeder only wants to have their stock evaluated, that is fine, nothing is required to sell.

Stock entered is $15.00 for the evaluation, per head. Group classes are $15.00 per group. A group class would be a doe with kid or a group of three yearling does.

All may be evaluated and return home.

Enter

  • The judges will sort the stock according to the breed standards and quality.
  • Champions will be awarded.
  • This is an evaluation and assessment of stock while be penned and turned loose in the arena as the judges request them. Handlers will be provided to handle all stock in the arena.

The Chroma Boer Goat Congress is all about the Painted Boer goat. Bucks, does and kid goats may enter. There will be group classes.

Selection will be based upon the South African Boer meat goat. Breed standards should be studied in both the South African and American Boe Goat and Savanna Associations. Registered and non-registered stock are evaluated together. The judges will not know which stock is registered and which is not. All stock is judged as if it were being entered into a stud book, qualifying the very best, as what is ideal to breed to make more breeding stock and then utilize the culls for the consumer market.
All “Boer Goat” Savanna colors are broken down into hair coat coloured categories first. Then stock is divided by sex and evaluated by age. Milk tooth entries will be weighed. A 10 pound group range will determine class breaks for milk tooth entries.

If there is any question, the Midwest Buck Sale staff and Superintendents of the Boer Goat Congress will determine what category the stock fits.
All colored Boer goats include any goat that is any color other than white bodied with a “dark” headed. This is only done so the breeder may see the consistent qualities of each animal. It is to help breeders learn. This is a learning event.

Spotted, dappled, paint, splashed, solid white, or grey shades, any other color than white, is going into the colored Boer event.
