been a LOT of speculation about what constitutes a TexMaster goat.
The formulary for creating the breed is proprietary to Onion Creek Ranch.
However, I can tell you that it is NOT a 50% Myotonic, 50% Boer cross
and folks selling you these crosses and calling them TexMasters are deceiving you.
In order to protect yourself you need to ask to see the Pedigree International Registration papers on the animals you are interested in.
They must trace back to Onion Creek Ranch or Bending Tree Ranch genetics.
If the seller cannot provide this information to you then you are NOT
purchasing true TexMaster Meat Goats but a Myotonic/Boer cross goat.
What exactly *is* a TexMaster Goat?
need for a MEATY goat to meet the needs of the commercial demands..........one
that is lower maintenance, better feed utilization, excellent mothering skills,
and kids that are up and finding that teat
within minutes after birth, Onion Creek Ranch began crossing their Tennessee
quality Myotonic bucks over Boer and Boer/Myotonic cross does. After several
generations of crossings the TexMaster breed was developed. The resulting
composite breed is significantly Myotonic, with just enough Boer to add a bit of
faster growth. The precise breeding formula is proprietary to Onion Creek Ranch.
TexMasters, like Tennessee Meat Goats, may be registered with Pedigree
Dr. Lou Nuti of Prairie View A&M University's International Goat Research Center north of Houston, Texas, has completed research proving a 6% to 10% greater meat yield is achieved by using a Myotonic buck on other-breed does. This means less waste and more money in the producer's pocket.
