The Great Goat Gathering! A very exciting day will be happening here in Choteau, Montana on Saturday October 18. Wise, experienced and friendly goat producers and goat buyers will be working with us to learn how to identify, select and breed for the meat goats that we want and need. Please click here for all the details.

And we're bringing goats North from Texas: In time for the Gathering on October 18, our trailer will be bringing goats from Texas to Montana. There is still room on the trailer for the animals that you've been wanting to get. Folks could save themselves days of driving by meeting the trailer on the way home or at the Gathering. Please email us or call for all the details.

Smoke Ridge is your source for meat goats that work FOR YOU. Our goats are raised on fresh or baled natural forage only (no feeding of concentrates or grain is necessary) and convert pasture, brush, and weeds into a meat for which the demand exceeds the supply. And the demand for goat meat continues to grow.

Our does have their kids in the pasture in the Spring, raising an average of 1.9 kids each. Kids reach market weight on natural forage in approximately six months, and thus are ready to be sold when market prices are typically highest, in fall and winter. Our goats respect electric fences, are used to being handled by people, and are raised with livestock guardian dogs. Smoke Ridge bucks are selected for rate of weight gain, high libido, and are either twins, triplets (or quads!) from dams who display excellent maternal traits. Smoke Ridge breeds pure Spanish as well as Spanish-Boer/Savannah composite-breed goats. Selection is for efficiency of production, excellent maternal attributes, and longevity.

Smoke Ridge has been in business since 1991. We operate our business ethically, we want YOU to be successful, and can deliver goats to you at cost. We'll help you once you have your goats, and
the new Meat Goat Handbook will be of management and business assistance as well as showing you almost 300 pictures of the many different kinds, shapes and sizes of meat goats in the U.S. and overseas. Smoke Ridge produces and has available for sale breeding goats that give the highest and longest lasting returns at the lowest possible cost and expenditure of labor.
