AUSTIN, TEXAS (PRWEB) October 23, 2012
Powell-Holman, premier Texas Boer goat Breeders, today announced the recent launch of their new website (http://www.powellholman.com). Powell-Holman’s new website will feature a more streamlined presence and the ability to reintroduce themselves to the Boer goat industry. Two noteworthy features on the Texas Boer goat Breeders’ site will be Boer goat, Wether goat and Dorper sheep listings; and win photos. Powell-Holman’s site will give the current 4-H generation access to find their future champion goat.
Sisters Claire Powell and Sharon Holman are lifetime goat ranchers. They grew up raising and showing Angora goats on their father's ranch out side of Rocksprings, Texas. Raising goats was and is a family business. It is not unusual to find both sisters helping their father with his own ranch today. The experience of raising Angora and Spanish meat goats made the transition to Boer goats in 1994 a natural choice for the sisters.
Sharon and Claire are both hands-on owners and operators of their Boer goat business. The 10,000 acre Holman Ranch is located 25 miles south of Sonora. Forty-five miles north of Sonora is the Powell Ranch, which covers 20,000 acres. The size and location of these ranches requires each to assume their share of the ranching responsibilities. When one considers the scope and vastness of each ranching enterprise, it is easier to understand why Claire and Sharon demand the traits of hardiness and high maternal instincts in their animals. Powell-Holman Boer goats are ranch raised and ranch hardy. Powell-Holman Boer goats must be able to travel the countryside, forage on their own and kid unassisted.
The 1997 ABGA National Show awarded the partnership seven championship trophies. Always looking to further improve their herd, they traveled to South Africa in 1999 to increase their knowledge of the South African Boer goat. While in South Africa, they arranged to import embryos from top South African genetics. The infusion of these genetics into their herd resulted in the superior offspring the pair had envisioned. In 2005, they partnered with Lukas Burger in South Africa to import embryos from South Africa to Australia and they brought the animals to the United States. These new genetics have helped Powell-Holman remain at the top in the Boer goat and market wether goat industries.
Claire and Sharon are active in the ranching aspects of the Boer goat, and they have volunteered countless hours in helping the Boer goat from a breed association standpoint. Claire is an approved ABGA Boer Goat Judge. Sharon served five years on the American Boer Goat Association Board of Directors and served as Vice President for one term. This is just one more way the sister team of Claire Powell and Sharon Holman has made the Boer goat a great agriculture product not only for Texas, but also for all of the United States.
