2013 Boer Goat Performance Test Results

2013 ASU Performance Test Results
We sent 21 of our fullblood and purebred buck offspring to the 2013 Meat Goat Performance Test at the Angelo State University Management, Instruction and Research Center in San Angelo, TX.  The test began May 24, 2013 and ended August 30, 2013, and accepted bucks born between January 1, 2013 and March 31, 2013.

Click the links below to view the performance 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.

I have included a REA % Avg column and rankings based on that statistic.   REA % Avg is
the REA as a percentage of the average REA for a buck of the same weight from a table I created using nine years worth of test data.   Click here to view the table showing average ribeye areas for different size goats.
