Eastern Oklahoma State College

Forage-Based Meat Goat Buck Test

Eastern Oklahoma State College, in partnership with Oklahoma Cooperative Extension Service, is home to the Oklahoma Forage-Basked Meat Goat Buck Test. Goat producers seeing ways to better manage their operations in ever more challenging production conditions can enroll their genetics in the popular test.

Objective

To identify individual bucks as well as their sires and dams that carry genetics expressing economically important traits in commercial meat goat production. Additionally, this test will allow breeders to compare genetics within their herd to make better management decisions as to herd lines that will produce profitable progeny for future herds. This test will also provide valuable information for all goat producers and the public.

Dates

The 14th Annual Oklahoma Forage-Based Meat Goat Buck Test is scheduled for entries on May 1, 2021.
