About ABGA

The American Boer Goat Association (ABGA) focuses on protecting, promoting, and recording the American Boer goat breed. The Boer breed was developed by Dutch farmers in South Africa in the 1900s, and the breed was introduced in the United States in 1993. The American Boer Goat Association (ABGA) was founded that same year. Boer goats are prized for their rapid growth rate, excellent carcass quality, and adaptability to many climates. A docile and highly fertile breed, Boer goats have been primarily used for meat production. Over a century later, these traits set the Boer goat apart in the purebred and commercial segments of the American meat goat industry. With over 7,00 members and 45,000 registered goats annually, today’s ABGA offers its members marketing, educational, and commercial industry opportunities, along with youth involvement through the Junior American Boer Goat Association (JABGA).
