You’ll Love Myotonic-Boer Crosses!

At J-I Ranch in Bedias, Texas, we sell meat goats and goat accessories. Stock from our herd makes for great agriculture projects, show goats, livestock additions for herd improvements, and foundation goats for starting new herds.

Goats for Sale

Myotonic-Boer crosses are bred specifically to yield a higher production meat goat. We also offer 100% Myotonic goats.


New Arrivals 

Every spring & fall, newborn kids arrive on the ranch. In 2017, the Fall kidding focused mainly on 100% Myotonic kids with a smaller selection of Myotonic-Boer 50-50 crosses. With 26 kids arriving in two weeks...including two sets of quads...things were busy at the ranch! The final arrivals from the 2017 breeding season are scheduled for delivery in late February-early March 2018. These kids will include Myotonic-Boer 50-50 crosses from our senior Boer does and 100% Myotonic kids from the Myotonic does and junior bucks participating in the autumn shows. With the introduction of new herd sires in 2017, we are  eagerly awaiting the results from the new bloodlines.

Our kids are weaned and available for pick-up at 8-12 weeks. Unless otherwise arranged, all kids will be dis-budded and CDT-vaccinated. We encourage you to select your kids early.

Herd Does

Our Boer does have a lovely mixed heritage. Made up of reds, chocolate, and traditional white with brown heads; the does include our "valley girl" from South Texas and the "sisters" with New Zealand bloodlines. Peppercorn and Ruby, two of our 2016 Fall / Spring 2017 50-50 cross doelings, were added to the herd does to start-up an exciting new line of percentage meat goats - 75% Myotonic-25% Boer. 

Six registered Myotonic does with championship show bloodlines were added as mothers of future herd sires and as the foundation for our 100% Myotonic herd. We have also added six registered black & white Myotonic does with Tennessee bloodlines. The first kids arrived in Fall 2016. Two of the doelings, Jane and Morag, were kept and incorporated into the herd. Jane recently won Grand Champion Doe at the '2017 Iowa's Premier Myotonic Show'.

Our Myotonic herd sires come from a long-line of award-winning bucks.

Jaxson is the son of Permanent Grand Champion 'Powerhouse Genetics Hugh' and Grand Champion 'Buck Creek Joline', and grandson of Permanent Grand Champion 'Buck Creek Hannah' and Permanent Grand Champion 'Buck Creek Romeo'. Jaxson recently won Grand Champion Buck and twice Jr Champion Buck at the '2017 MGR Midwest Myotonic Show'. Bear is the son of Permanent Grand Champion 'Bakken's Farm Kid Rock' and great grandson of Permanent Grand Champion 'Jamsim's Sassparila' and great grandson of 2010 National Champion 'Woody Creek Farm WLS Hotrod'.

Showing Goats

Why is show particpation important as a breeder?

Although our primary focus is not as show exhibitors, it is important to us that our breeding stock upholds/excels at meeting breed standards and conformation. Therefore, 1-2 times per year, we select a handful of our breeding stock (does & bucks) and participate in MGR-sanctioned shows. This allows us to receive feedback from a number of qualified judges regarding the conformation and condition of our breeding stock. As breeders, we are serious about promoting good health and good conformation. Conformation is necessary for the long-term productivity and sustainability of the individual goat and ultimately, the herd.

In 2017, we participated two shows - the Iowa's Premier Myotonic Goat Show and the MGR Midwest Myotonic Goat Show. We took 11 goats to Iowa and 7 goats to Oklahoma.  We are looking forward to participating in the Texas Myotonic Show-down in May 2018 where, in addition to the breeding stock, we will be introducing some of our 'new arrivals' in the pee-wee classes. This will be a first showing of the offspring from sires 'Bear' & 'Jaxson'. 

J-I Kimbo, one of our Fall 2017 kids, recently was named Grand Champion Buck at a show in Louisiana. Hats off to David Risby, owner & exhibitor.
