  1. Dairy Diaries
    I need help. My gut is saying no but my mother and customer are saying YES! My customer wants to breed my dairy goat to a meet goat and eat the kids. Since the kid would be 1/2 dairy, I don't believe he should eat the kids. I strongly believe in only eating goats that are bred for meat, and...
  2. Meat Market
    So my herd is mostly all Kiko. I love them so far, but have yet to get into the meat market side for them. I'm still breeding and hoping to up my numbers soon just for this. Have any advice for them as far as a meat goat? Any good methods for feeding or tips for getting them larger faster? What...

    Introductions
    Hi, my name is Cathy and I’m new to Goating. We have two female Nubian/Alpine mix doelings and a You g Pygmy wether. We got them mainly for forage as we live on a 30 acre farm which has been overgrown with every thorny, nasty, invasive viney plant known to mankind, lol!!! We want to clear...
  4. Meat Market
    If you are in Florida, can you give me any insight for the production of meat there? What is the demand, what is a good market? Is it for a mature buck, for a buckling, for only milk fed? Is auction best, or private live sales? Anything else???? My daughter lives there, and wants to start...
  5. Goat Frenzy
    We have a Nigerian Dwarf buckling who is 3 weeks old. We do not plan to keep him long term- he will probably end up in our fridge/freezer by 6 months old. What is the earliest you would castrate? I don't want to stunt growth, but at the same time don't want to wait too long since we will be...
  6. Meat Market

I gererally sell...
  7. Meat Market
    Yesterday we butchered our oldest goat (close to 12 years old) because she was bloated and in pain. Her temp was normal so we suspect no fever or inflammations. I think she had got to much fodder (we've almost stopped giving them fodder, rather giving them hay) or some such as her intestines...
  8. Pack and Working Goats
    I guess this is the best place to ask. I originally wanted to get my daughter a pony. Not to ride, but to pull her in a carage. And one that stays small. Then someone mentioned you could do that with a goat. And i remembered that movie with Michelle Pfiefer. Now heres the question...we need...

    I just wanted to put up a short post to introduce myself. I have been a member for a while, but we just came through kidding and have been extremely busy. We raise registered and commercial Kiko meat goats. We started out small, with only two registered does and one 50/50 boer/kiko doe. We...
