The goat sent week before last was amazing

Cockerham Goats has been established since 2000 and we have worked hard to produce a commercially viable "British Meat Goat".
These are based on the Boer with the careful addition of other genetics including Cashmere.
This increases the goats' hardiness whilst reducing their input cost needs.
These goats should be able to spend large amounts of the year grazing with access to shelter rather than the more costly option of constant housing.
Feed requirements should be lower than with some alternative breeds.

Alongside efforts to reduce input costs Cockerham Goats have worked to increase output from the goats by gradually increasing the expected kidding percentage. (This is an on going project).
Whilst also extending the expected working life of the does.

Growth rates within our British Meat Goats are a little steadier than can be the case with Boer goats as we find the optimum time for best flavoured meat is around 12 months.
The aim therefore is to create kids which are finishing for meat between 9 and 15 months.
With a smaller number ready 3 months earlier or later which creates a year round supply of meat from a short kidding season.
