OMGA Buck Performance Test Announced

The 9th annual Buck Performance Test sponsored by the Oklahoma Meat Goat Association in conjunction with Langston University will begin May 13, 2006 at Langston University in Langston, OK.

The test is approved by the International Boer Goat Association, and the American Boer Goat Association to be used in their Ennoblement Programs.

Any buck kid, regardess of breed, born between Dec. 1, 2005 and March 31, 2006, are eligible to participate in the Buck Performance Test. (Papers are not necessary unless you would like to participate in the Ennoblement Programs.

The cost of the test is $125 per animal and that includes feed, vet bills, prep examination, sonograms and veterinarian examinations once a week.

The 84 day test at Langston University has the capability to measure the individual feed intake of each buck and also record the weight gain of each buck. It is the only test station in the nation to offer services such as feed efficiency, ADG, loin eye sonograms and weekly veterinary checks. With the drought throughout the nation, feed prices are bound to increase, so being able to add ADG to your buck with less feed will be a valuable genetic asset to pass on to their offspring.

The Oklahoma Meat Goat Association is only responsible for the administrative part of the test, handling the finances, advertising, purchasing feed and paying the vet bills. Once the bucks arrive at the testing facility at Langston University, Dr. Steve Hart and his personnel facilitate the handling and feeding of the bucks and have the sole responsibility of conducting the test and the results.

For more information, contact Dr. Hart at Langston University 405-466-6138 or Jim Daniel 405-664-8329. You can go to www.oklahomameatgoatassociation.com to download an application for the buck performance test.
