We began breeding and raising goats at the J-I Ranch initially as a way to keep the fence lines and lake banks tidy and to supplement our income after retirement. We found we enjoyed being surrounded by healthy, happy goats and quickly settled into a philosophy of maintaining a small pasture-fed, free-range herd in an enriched goat environment with frequent handling and interaction. Our herd is made up entirely of meat goats. We have Myotonic, also know as "fainting goats", and Boer breeds. The playfulness and boisterousness of the Boer goats fit us to a “T”, but we also love the quiet, gentleness of the Myotonics. Interested in herd & breed improvement, we have chosen to specialize in Myotonic-Boer crosses. Boer goats are the largest of all meat goats. The Myotonic goats have smaller frames, but offer a higher meat-to-bone ratio. Our Myotonic-Boer crosses are low-maintenance, easy keepers with a high meat yield.
Don’t forget to buy some goat accessories to go with your new animal. We make several pieces of livestock equipment right here on our ranch that are perfect for goats.
Goat and goat accessories are available for pick-up only, and we require a deposit to hold a particular goat or for custom-order accessories.
We are registered breeders with the Myotonic Goat Registry. Breeder Number: 2116. Breeder Suffix: JIR.
