CBA Boer Goats started in 1999 with a few Spanish and Boer cross goats and what our son Carlos thought (at the time) was one of the best looking solid white unregistered Boer bucks. Fullblood? Who knows for sure? At the time we never even considered getting into the goat business. CBA stands for the 3 of us, Carlos, Bob and Alma. Carlos has since ventured out on his own and now operates Sandy Creek Boer Goats out of Rosharon, TX.
Our introduction into the real Boer Goat world started when Carlos insisted we go visit a woman he met in Rosharon who had Boer goats, Gayla and Tony Matthews of Brakah Farms in Rosharon, Tx. We gave in to our son’s request and headed out with the intention of “just looking” at what she had and if our son wanted to buy that was his decision. We had no intention at that time of even getting into the goat business much less starting a herd of registered stock. As we were walking around her farm admiring her stock, a 4-month-old bottle baby kept following Alma and wanted to be touched and held the whole time we were looking. Needless to say Alma fell for this bottle baby doe and we ended up bringing her home for a price I thought “ FOR A GOAT “. Gayla later admitted, jokingly, that she uses bottle babies as bait. Well it worked and we’ve been hooked ever since.
We have learned a lot the past several years and owe it all to the breeders we have purchased our stock from. One thing we have learned is that the people in this business are not afraid to share information and help out fellow breeders.
Our goals are to carry on this trend by assisting not only the people who have purchased our stock, but also to anyone that has any interest in the Boer Goat business. My wife is occasionally referred to as Doc. We are also involved with our local 4-H groups and love working with and helping teach kids and their parents the pleasures and rewards of raising goats.
We also assist with coordinating and participating in several sanctioned shows a year along with assisting with sanctioned and non sanctioned Jackpot shows for the kids. We have found that this, along with visiting other breeders is one of the best ways to learn the business. In this business you never stop learning, or can never learn enough.
Our main goal is to offer the best in quality and genetics possible. We are constantly upgrading our herd by adding the most current bloodlines to our program every few years. Our current bloodlines include RRD Ruger, 2 Dox Prime Time, RRD Cannon, RRD Magnum,DCW Bo Jangle, FSE Aflac and Eggs the Sequel, sons and daughters. We are always looking for ways to improve our stock. We want to be able to offer the same quality as we would expect to purchase.
We look forward to a bright future in this young and maturing business and wish everyone who is in or looking to get in, all the best. Please visit our Herd Sire, Does, Winners, and For Sale page to see how CBA Boer Goats can help you achieve your goals.
