2002 Boer Goat Performance Test Results

2002 ASU Performance Test Results
We sent 24 of our 26 fullblood and purebred buck offspring to the 2002 Meat Goat Performance Test at the Angelo State University Management, Instruction and Research Center in San Angelo, TX.  The other fullblood bucks were too young to participate.  The test began May 20, 2002 and ended August 26, 2002, and accepted bucks born between January 1, 2002 and March 31, 2002.  Only 20 of our bucks completed the test. Of the other four, three died and one developed an eye problem that left him blind and caused him to actually lose weight during the last 1/2 of the test. The data for those bucks is not included in the test results.

The abbreviation ADG means average daily gain (reported in lbs/day) and REA means ribeye area (reported in square inches). Please note that a 135 lb. goat with a ribeye area of 2.4 is not necessarily superior to a 100 lb. goat with a ribeye area of 2.1. The ribeye areas of goats with significantly different weights are difficult to compare, although it would probably be safe to say that a 100 lb. goat with a ribeye area of 2.4 is superior to either a 135 lb. goat with the same size ribeye or another 100 lb. goat with a ribeye area of 2.1.  Click here for a chart showing average ribeye areas of different size goats.
