K Bar Livestock

K Bar Livestock

The basic short haired Spanish Goat is an all too frequently overlooked research and teaching model.  It makes an ideal alternative to the pet-type animals most often chosen for physiology, surgery and Trauma/Life-support labs.  They also make great research models for many protocols.

The use of properly chosen and conditioned goats virtually eliminates the problems and diseases associated with ticks and fleas, as well as the liabilities of rabies or toxoplasmosis. Goats never scratch or bite.

Contrary to popular myth, goats are clean and friendly, have no offensive odor and are very easy to work with.

K Bar Livestock is able to offer the widest possible range of breeds, sizes and ages.   Our most frequently requested models is the Spanish Goat breeds. These are short haired / smooth coat breed that have developed in the Texas Hill Country area as meat animals.  The wethers (castrated males) average between 30 and 80 lbs. as adolescents and young adults.   The does (females) are slightly smaller at the same age but both sexes continue to grow until 4 years of age and some will mature at greater than 150 lbs.  Although 50 to 75 lbs. is considered average size, both very large and very small animals are always available. If you require skeletally mature animals, 4 - 6 year old, non-pregnant does are always available.

Unless you specifically request them, we will never deliver the long haired Angora breed, or any of the dairy breeds.  There are problems inherent with the breed and we tend to avoid them unless you tell us that you have a specific reason to choose them.  They are, of course, readily available, as are the diminutive Pygmy and Nigerian Dwarf breeds and the very large dairy breeds.

Whichever breed you choose, all K BAR animals are guaranteed to be healthy, immunized and parasite free.  They will be normal weight-for-age and within a narrow weight range for each order.
