Raising Goats on a family farm.

Goats can make great pets!
And like so many other people we look for ways to live green and grow our own food, goats are a wonderful option for raising meat and milk, and you can harvest their fleece, as well. Whether you’re raising goats for food or looking for a smart, lovable pet, you need to do a bit of research and learn a few things about caring for your herd.

Beginning to build the goat barn

Before bringing home your goats, give a little thought on how you can keep your goats safe and healthy, and protect them from predators.

Build housing or get current housing ready. Goats need some kind of shelter from the elements and a safe place to bunk down.

Build a fence or check your fencing for security. Goats are smart and curious, and they will head out into the neighborhood if given the chance. Fencing isn't just to keep your goats in, you will need to consider wolves, wild dogs, and other predators that would love to get at your goats.

Know how to feed goats and what kind of feeding equipment needed. Goats need hay, grain, minerals, and other supplemental feed, depending on the kind of goats you get, their stage of life, and the way you intend to use them. And of course, your goats need clean, fresh water every day.

Goat-proof your yard or pasture. Goats are grazers, which means that they move from plant to plant and tree to tree, eating all the way. Some of the common plants that homeowners use for landscaping can poison goats, and so you need to clear them out. You may also want to protect the trees that you want, by covering their trunks.
