BKB | National Boer Goat Auction | 2019

Good day, we are here at the National Boer Goat Auction in Bloemfontein. We have experienced a lot of positivity due to the quality of animals that were presented. From BKB’s side, it was a pleasure to present quality genetics. Every buyer can be proud of what he has bought. We had buyers from other countries, whom I would like to thank. Thank you to every buyer who supported us. We know it is tough out there, but despite that everyone had a positive attitude today. Thank you for everyone’s support. I want to thank our sellers. I can’t remember when last I saw such good quality animals at a national auction. Looking at what happened at the auction today, there was a lot of positivity. Many people took part in the auction and bought animals, and to all the sellers, the animals were in excellent condition, and their genetics are outstanding. We bought the most expensive ram at the auction, but the genetics absolutely justify the price we paid. On the contrary, I think we actually paid a very fair price. We identified these rams beforehand, and this ram was our number one choice. The attitude, build, stance and genetics of Lukas’ ram speak for itself. I think it is top genetics which can only improve our herd in the future. The auction average for the ewes, which was mixed between stud and herd animals, was R12 191 The most expensive ewe was sold to Pip Nieuwoudt from the Nama Stud, and she was sold by Lukas Burger from Griekwastad. The most expensive ram was sold to Jorrie Jordaan from Swartruggens, and this ram was also bred by Lukas Burger from Griekwastad. This ram, Iron Man, was sold for R120 000. The averages for the mixed stud and herd rams was just under R20 000, about R19 967. From BKB’s side, we would like to thank everyone who attended. We hope to see you again next year. Same place, same time.
