SRMGA Breeders Spotlight: Windom Boer Goats
My name is Tyler Windom. I got started in Boer goats in 2015 when I bought my first pair of wethers to raise for my market project in 4-H. I developed friendships with several people who raised goats and they became my mentors that helped me learn all about goats and how to care for them. Through this process I fell in love with goats. I started showing my wethers at the local jackpot shows, which gave me a lot of practice. Then at fair that year I won Grand Champion in Showmanship and Reserve Champion Overall Market Goat. I was so excited!
After selling my wethers that year I realized how much I missed having goats around. So in March 2016 I purchased my first pair of does. I started showing them in ABGA shows and they always placed well. I also bought another pair of wethers. That year at the fair I won Grand Champion in 4-H Market Goat and Reserve Champion in 4-H Breeding Meat Goat.
In the fall of 2016 I was able to have my oldest doe bred. I was so excited! Throughout the winter I anxiously awaited the time for her to deliver. She had a pair of does in February 2017. I recently attended the Boers de Mayo Show and all my goats placed well in their classes. I am excited to breed my other two does this fall.
I have enjoyed working with and showing goats for the last couple of years. I look forward to growing my herd and becoming a reputable breeder in the area.
