our boys get hay over winter with a little bit of concentrate and grass etc through the summer and we send them off at 1 yr old, not a huge kill weight (14-15kgs) but we have introduced a Boer billy so hoping this years kids will fatten up a bit quicker

With your billy if you send away at 1 year you will double that weight !!!

I can't wait to see how this lot turn out verdifish, we've got orders for goat meat starting again in March so that will be 7 months-ish.
my next dairy boy goes to the abattoir in 2 weeks.
keeper of goats, sheep, pigs, ducks, chickens, turkeys, dogs, cats, goldfish and children, just don't ask me which is the most work!
