Profitable Boer Goat Farming training course
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.
The management course is presented in layman’s language. It draws on practical experience gained over more than 27 years of Boer Goat farming; experience and knowledge that is shared with farmers looking to enter the Boer Goat sector. Existing farmers looking to improve their profitability and sustainability will also benefit greatly from the course.
All students receive a printed training manual, a copy of the DVD Boer Goat Treatment Procedures DVD in either English or Afrikaans included in the course fee and, on completion of the course, you also receive a professionally designed and printed certificate similar to these illustrated.
