Purpose:  Angelo State University's Department of Agriculture in conjunction with the Texas Agricultural Experiment Station, San Angelo, Texas conducts a meat goat buck performance test annually to identify superior bucks.  The test is an avenue for producers to bring their bucks to a central location where they are managed with other producers' goats so that performance may be compared. 

Performance testing is crucial for a producer to really know how their goats compare to other producers goats, but to accurately make the comparisons, the data must be taken from a performance test.  Performance testing is designed to remove many of the environmental factors that influence the performance of animals and if all animals are raised under the same conditions the data is comparable among animals.

Additionally, data collected on our performance test is used by the American Boer Goat Association in determining bucks eligible for "Ennoblement".  In order for the test to qualify it must be a minimum of 84 days in length.
