Hello

I am in process of setting up goat farm. But the problem is I am unable to get pure breed Boer does. But some farms are offering pure Boer bucks at very high price. If suppose I buy bore buck and cross bread with local breed. Then I will have cross bred with less productive goats in team of weight etc. I had read in one article that it will take two-three generations of crossbreeding for the full potential of the Boer breeds to be transferred to Indian goats. Is this possible?

Dear sir

Idea is good but better take technical opinion from veterneary doctor before you do.

Theorically 7th backcross will be 99% similar to boer

It is possible
In Animal breeding and genetics the principle is as follows

Female X Male donar (Boer)
1st back cross= 50% of Boer character : Known as Back cross 1 (BC1)
BC1 X Boer
2nd back cross (BC2) = 75% of Boer trait
BC2 X Boer
BC3 = 87.5% of Boer X Boer
BC4 =93.75
BC5=96.875
BC6=98.43
BC7=99.21% of Boer trait
Note: Pls Carefull observe the body weight and boer traits while selecting female back cross.

Hi Kiran

AGRI1972 has given good program; it is not difficult but highly technical. Need lot of time, patience and money. Study thoroughly; not only technical aspects also your money flow before you leap. Best luck

Hi All/Daniel

Thanks for your valuable suggestions.

About cost and technical planing I have below IDEA.

I hope if we have proper planning then we can overcome the cost involved. Suppose if I go for importing frozen embryos for my project. It’s a very hectic task and there are 50-50 chances of survival of new born kids.

So here is my plan on goat farming buy one pure bloodline Boer buck and 8 -10 local breed which are ready for mating (which will be available for reasonable price).then first generation goats are ready, then cross with the Boer buck I am having and follow the same for up to 6 or 7th generation. I know it will take some time.

But during all this process I will be having cross breeds of first generation 50%, second generation 75%, Third generation 87%, and fourth gen 93% and so on. By Keeping pure breed goats rest can be sold for meat purpose.

Cost managing:

Here farms are offering 1500-2500 Rs/live weight for pure bloodline Boer buck and 3000rs for does.

Buck =50*2000 =1, 00,000/ or ~=1870 US dollar.
Does =50*3000=1, 50,000/ or ~=2800 US dollar. If I buy local breed then I should get 8 goats for around 60, 000-65, 0000 Rs. This is one third price of pure doe. Also I will be getting 8-12 kids form local breed. But will get 1-2 kids form Boer doe etc.


Regards

Kiran
