Profitable Boer Goat Farming training course

Boer Goat Training

The Boer Goat industry continues to grow and — as in many other agricultural sectors — the demands on producers are intensifying. Profitability is under pressure, parasite resistance is becoming more common, agricultural land is getting more expensive. To remain competitive and maintain sustainable growth, the producer needs knowledge and skill. He needs all the information possible that will make his farming operation succeed over the long term.

An important Boer Goat Farming course

To satisfy this demand, Johan Steyn, developer of this boergoats.co.za website and owner of the well-known Patriot Boer Goat Stud in South Africa, has developed an intensive one-day Boer Goat Farming course aimed at addressing the needs of farmers.

Existing farmers looking to improve their profitability and sustainability will also benefit greatly from the course.
