Boer Goat breeding stock:
- Ideally, the station can carry between 200 and 250 breeding females at any given time. This would result in about 100 gimmers and 100 bucks being sold to farmers each year.
- For the stocking mentioned above, at least 100 ha would be required for grazing; 20 ha would be under browse species and 20 ha would be required to grow maize for energy source for the stock.
- Currently, the Institute is not meeting demand for breeding stock from clients. Additional investment to upscale stock production would improve supply.
- The Institute is in the process of meeting due deligence for registration to be in the Boer Goat Breeders Society
