EXPORTING GOATS - FROM AUSTRALIA
Boer Goat Australia is a registering body for Breeders/Studs to record the parentage of their stock & maintain the integrity of the Boer Goat Breed.
BGA do not directly organise or coordinate sales of goats or exports internationally. Nor do we recommend specific Companies or Studs.
BGA do not directly organise or coordinate sales of goats or exports internationally. Nor do we recommend specific Companies or Studs. Firstly, you would need to approach your Department of Agriculture in your destination Country.
To ascertain if there is an existing agreement for the Importation of Boer Goats from Australia to your country. If an export agreement exists, there will be requirements to import stock. These will/may include Quarantine, Health/Disease testing & possibly quality or genetic requirements. Contact a Livestock Importer based in your country to assist in the management of the requirements.
Govt Vet Check
Once you have ascertained these requirements, you will need to make contact with an Australian Export Company & Australian Studs/Breeders. Who will be able to source suitable animals to your needs. BGA members are listed on the BGA website breeders directory – www.boergoataus.com.au , Export Companies can be searched for on the internet.
Once the animals are sourced & transport arranged, your stock will need to be sent to a Quarantine centre in Australia for the testing & quarantine time specified by your countries import requirements.
Crated Ready For Flight
Arriving in Nepal
There are various sizes of crates which will affect the numbers of animals best suited to travel by air to your country. In general, younger animals are better able to adjust to a new environment, as well as being better suited for size & weight requirements in crates. Pregnant Does/Ewes are not permitted to be exported.
Once arrived in your country there is usually again a quarantine requirement & may be further testing requirements.
Animals exported overseas may loose a significant amount of weight during their travels & will need time to adjust to their different environment & different feed. Good management of your investment is key to success.
