GOAT (aka Chevon, Cabrito, or Capretto) is a surprisingly tender and mild meat... most people assume it tastes like lamb, but a closer comparable would be veal. Unlike beef, the meat has less internal marbling fat, so care should be taken when cooking the tender cuts (medium-rare only). The larger cuts respond very well to braising.
For the purpose of butchering, Goats and Lambs are very similar, so please refer to Lamb cut-sheet above.
The Boer goat originated from South Africa. They were selected for meat rather than milk production; due to selective breeding and improvement, the Boer goat has a fast growth rate and excellent carcass qualities, making it one of the most popular breeds of meat goat in the world.
The Boer goats are very compatible with sheep and cattle...while sheep and cattle graze head down, goats prefer to browse and do a spectacular job keeping fences clear and even enjoy clearing several pesky weed species.
If you haven’t tried goat meat you are missing out on a very tasty dinner.
