We evaluated 4 bucks and 9 does and were thrilled with our results! We have been participating in the program since 2010, and cannot stress enough that this program is a very valuable resource in learning your strengths and areas in need of improvement in your herd!
On Oct. 3rd we had the privilege of having classifiers Ian and Barbie Clark to the farm to evaluate our goats! We are thankful that they are taking the time to travel across the provinces (and time away from their own family and farm!) to evaluate goats on farm, and to give breeders their insights and to give the goats an evaluation score when compared to the true-type goat and breed standards. We'd like to encourage more breeders to take advantage of this valuable tool we have available to us!
So, while we are always proud of our girls and guys here at Treeline Boers, simply for the hard work they put into producing wonderful offspring for us, both for breeding stock and for the meat market, I have to admit that on that morning I was just a little more proud of them, as their evaluation scores prove that our breeding program is strong and sound!
