  2. Beginners Goat Raising
    I'm new to ND goats and inherited 2 quite by accident. They're adorable and about 12 weeks old. They were very skinny when we got them about 2 weeks ago. We took them to the vet who just gave them a quick look over and suggested we come back since they were terrified of even us. They clearly had...

  7. Beginners Goat Raising
    Hi y'all! After many months of prep and some luck coming my way, my family just picked up our two sweet Nigerian Dwarf does from their former owner (we had waited until they were able to be bred since they will be dairy girls). After getting them in their new digs, and letting them explore a...

    Hello I am new to goats have 4 males just for vegetation control. Had horses do it last year but they overgrazed quickly. The goats seem to have taken things down but not nearly as much as thought. Only half the pasture has been ustilized and the other is over grown but dry. Both are dry...

    Hello all, I am a new to goats. A few months ago I bought 4 boer does and one buck from a local guy who was selling his herd. They are boer/ probably boer cross. He said they were UTD on vaccs, but in hindsight his animal husbandry was lacking, so I doubt the animals I purchased were properly...

    Hello all! I'm new to being a goat mama, but I sure love it so far! All of the farms I have visited, the goats (all breeds), have been so sweet and tame. I'm sure some of that will come in time, but my goats do not come around me at all. Any tips on how to make them more tame? I bought...
