Look before you leap with goats

Look before you leap with goats

Goats are incredible animals and can contribute to a small-scale farm or property in many ways. They are multi-functional animals, meaning they are sources of milk and meat. They aid in brush removal, and can provide amusement and frustration. No matter your motive for raising goats, the needs and care are the same.
