    Many would disagree with me here but I think a Boer is the best for meat and for milking the Lamachas and Nubians but everyone has different out looks on things.

    Good Luck on what you decide and get.

    I would say boers are best for meat but the milk will show peoples differant opinions for sure. I personally raise Sanaans crossed with a boer buck for meat and milk. I sell offspring as meat goats and still get all the milk my family needs plus some.
