    This is RPF Kasw Rodeo Wrangler. I'm so proud of him! Took him to a USBGA show and won Jr. Grand Champion and Jr. Reserve Champion! It was his (and my) first time showing. I was shocked. (He's only 7 months old.)
    Isn't he a good-looking guy?

    for 7 months he is EXTREAMLY well built, THIS is why i dont know WHY anyone would want to breed a Non Boer buck to their does for meat, its very clear where the meat is at lol

    i too would like to see some other pics of him, from front and back as well so we can see how wide he is,
    a good buck will have length and width, this guy has a decent length, which can easily be improved appon by breeding to nice long bodied does,

    he is an awsome looking buck, is he naturally polled? or did you DisBud him? also did that play any part in the judging? i was under the impression that Boers needed to be eather Horned or Naturally Polled? have they chainged that?

    He is a nice-looking young buck, but I also question the horns factor. USBGA allows de-horned goats in their shows? Horns are dominant and it would extremely rare to have polled offspring. Just wondering.

    No, he's not polled, he's disbudded. According to the USBGA rule book "Animals may have their horns removed with no discrimination shown against them." He actually won over a horned buckling. (I believe it's the ABGA that doesn't allow disbudding.) I'll take some more pictures soon.

    There was a USBGA sanctioned show at the Yamhill County Fairgrounds in McMinnville, Oregon. (Breeders came from other parts of the state as well)

    Congratulations! I know very little about meat goats (not at all common 'round here) but he looks like a very solid guy.

    Congratulations! Nice looking boy. We also raise Boer goats and have started attending shows. Really fun winning, isn't it?

    For the record...

    You can show disbudded bucks and does in both USBGA and ABGA shows. However, it does seem that , all other things being equal, a horned animal will get the nod over a non-horned animal, especially in bucks. A good judge will not put an inferior animal with horns over a better animal that has been disbudded.

    I know that ABGA lets disbudded animals show, because a friend of mine showed a disbudded buckling and the judge made him RGCH Jr. buck.
