My last batch of BT male wethers went at 10 months and two killed out at just over 25kgs and the other one (which was one of triplets) was a little less at 21kgs.

As we don't officially sell  :innocent:, haven't got any prices per kg, but would start with joints at 10 - 12 pounds per kg (bone in for leg), and slightly less for cubed and mince. We now do our own butchery on our dining room table...

A local butcher killed some and had a sign outside saying goat meat was 12.99 per kg.  Another butcher charges a lot less.  He was bemoaning the fact that goats are a lot smaller than lambs - he said 20kg was good.

I was allowing 120 for a whole butchered goat. It is expensive meat, largely because it has very little fat, I think.

The Scottish goat meat company are online, cant keep up with demand at 23/kg for diced and 31 per leg etc.
Our nearly 6m old kids just came back at 17, 19 and 20kg and we were very pleased. We had one at R3L and 2 O3L, and the smallest was a triplet.
