Okay, so you’ve raised some Boer goats, fattened them up, and now you’re ready to let them loose on the market. So where do you sell them?
Excellent question – here are some important things to keep in mind when deciding where to sell your goats:
- Market demand is higher in some regions than others, with the highest demand in areas with a large “ethnic” population (Muslims, Latinos, and Asians).
- Because a lot of the demand for for Boer goat meat comes from the ethnic population, demand generally spikes around certain religious holidays (like the Muslim holiday of Ramadan, along with Easter and Christmas).
- To get a higher price for your meat, you want to sell directly to other farmers, or as meat to consumers. Goats sell at lower prices if sold at auction.
Now, that’s if you only want to sell your Boers for meat. If you’re planning to sell your bucks and does as breeding stock, that’s a whole other ballgame!
