The goat industry is a ever changing area. There have been many changes, even in the Boer Goats themself. There has been many changes from the orginal look and STANDARDS that first made the Boer Goat such a massive and strong animal. Some of these changes have been due to environmental, breeding standards, and even some financial opportunities made some breeders have strayed from the ORIGINAL STANDARDS. We have decided to do the best we can to stay true to those standards that were set by the SA Breeders. This has made us change the way we look at, breed and even changed the way we look at animals we keep for out breeding programs. We have made a decision to purchase animals, seman and breeding stock that are as close to the ORIGINAL BOER GOATS that we so love. If there is any way WILDE PLUM HERITAGE BOER GOATS can help you please just get in contact with us.
Wilde Plum Farm of Georgia wants to welcome you to our little touch of heaven in our little Boer Goat World where we have quality Boer Goats and even some Non-Traditional Boer Goats. We are basing our breeding program off the original genetics that came to the United States in the mid 1990's. This is an important part of our program due to the limited genetics that is true to the original structural design that came South Africa. We see these animals as the future of the meat situation in the United States of Americus. We are breeding animal that range from stock animals to show animals and all animals in between . We are proud to say we base our breeding program on TRUE South Africian Style and proven HISTORY.
" As a breeder I believe that one should always do a few things. We should try to improve each generation of this breed. .” This is very important. There is always changes that happen to all type of animals, but we must stay true to the animal and its origins. In order to do this we must look at each characteristic of the animals are like a piece or a puzzle and a building foundation block of a pyramid.
1) Foundation is the structural integrity of the animal and the future of the Boer Goat Industry
3) Breed Characteristic.
This combination needs to work well for the breeder on the farm, as a added block to the future boer goat breed and last but not least what they will do in the show ring. When they do not meet then needed components EAT THEM. They are meat goats
