Goats are social animals and have lots of personality, which can make a great addition to any hobby farm. Goats can decipher moods and prefer that their humans are happy!
Goats have similar requirements to sheep and should have about 20 feet of indoor space. A small herd of 6-8 goats will be comfortable on an acre, provided the land has the food they like to munch on.
Average days to reach market weight:
Depending on what type of feed the goats are eating, they can gain .25 to .5 a pound each day. Adjust their feed to bring your goats to market weight at the right time.
Additional uses of goats:
Goats offer fiber, milk and meat. Angora and Pygora goats also yield mohair. Cashmere goats produce cashmere.
