More Boer Goat Blog News

Goats and goat stories regularly appear in TV and media, everything from surf board riding to road accidents and a lot more as well, some of it quite weird and bizarre. Goats are often ill treated and this site supports humane animal keeping practises, so look after your goats. The goat breeding industry covers most countries and being a major food source is well traded and sold. Where possible I try to share these goat stories or useful information for goat farmers and goat breeders. Please use this goat Blog page for advising readers of any upcoming goat shows or show results, or some useful advice on nutrition or husbandry.

I would invited anyone to submit well written articles on shows or other goat subjects. Any submission however for goat sales or advertising will be deleted and the submitter will be banned.

The range of goat subjects is very diverse as any reading of the submitted stories so far show. Also we welcome your images for submissions and invite you to add them with every story submission. The Boer Goat Blog has the latest and most useful Goat Information
