MAC GOATS   goat:   Home of Dexter cattle and Boer Goats.  The South African Boer Goat is the ultimate in meat goats.  The Dexter cattle breed, because of it's smaller size and tendency for a docile disposition is a good starter for the new endeavor into cattle.  MAC GOATS moved to the Midwest in the Ozarks of Missouri near the Arkansas border, breeding Boer Goats for high quality, fast weight gain, and health. Our secondary goal is to educate the meat goat and  Boer goat buyer so he can make the best choices for his meat goat matter where the purchases are made.   Before relocating to Missouri, in the Midwest, we were one of the largest quality Boer Goat herds in California with the most reasonable prices...we continue our goals in our new location.   Check out out our Educational articles on structure, standards, developmental photos, judging of the South African Boer Goat, care and management.  Ennobled genetics include 41 :  DOWNEN R33 "Hoss", EGGS P653 Jubilation,  MAC Goats Loretta, Sunny  Acres Starski,  EGGSfile,  RRD Ruger, RRD BMF Impact, Rambo, Pipeline,  EGGSpensive, EGGSpense Account   EGGspensive Mistress,  Downen Big 85, Downen VCR, DOW M61,  Downen N24, Top Gun No. 2,  EGGSorcist,  EGGStreme,  Sasquatch,  Ram H Tobias,  Frances,  Oscar,  Pistolero,  Ubora,  Kaptein,  EGGS The Sequel,   Mojo Magic,  ABF M27"Meat Loaf",  ABF Lillie,  Highlanders 104, Downen 519, Sunny Acres Stardust, LSBG Rock,  Milibi , Lobola SA,  RRD Gunsmoke,  EGGS Ryals Magnum,  RRD Magnum's Beauty,  RRD Remington M160, Bingo, Buttmaster, and BDF M08.   MAC Goats' had won over 150 Overall Grand  & Res. Champion, Grand & Res. Champion, and Champion & Res. awards when we stopped counting.  Considering that we keep our Boer Goat herd to a small nucleus of around 20, I think we are proving that we have an eye for quality and are succeeding in our breeding goals.   We won the California Premier Fullblood Boer Goat Breeder award, May 2001, and in 2005 two of our herd sires (Hoss and Jubilation) became of our does (MAC Goats Loretta) became ennobled in 2006, and MAC Goats Fantastik, whom we sold was soon to be ennobled, with several others in line at that time.   Hoss did it with three months of showing....and his first MAC Goat offspring, three of them helping their daddy with only one month of showing in the junior classes!   Loretta did it with 5 points of her own and the rest from her first year of production, two sets of twins in pending ennoblement.  Play Kids of Oklahoma bought our doe, Mac Goats R206 bred to our Ennobled Hoss, and she produced their herd sire Stiff Upper Lip who is now ennobled in 2009, as was his mom (MAC Goats R206) for her production.  They also ennobled a young kid buck we sold them, MAC Goats T324 "Big Guy" out of Loretta and Hoss.  Check them out at  Also check out Jim Furman in Kansas, Urish Ridge Boer Goats, who has Loretta offspring that are winning!  The latest being in 2013!

May 2014: Due to Matt's bad knees he has sold most of the goats except for a couple well bred old ladies, and he couldn't help keeping 3 youngsters related to Hoss and Lorretta because of their outstanding bloodlines.  We also kept a young buck who carries these outstanding bloodlines also.
