Okay so earlier this year I got my first real goats (besides Gus the Boer goat I had when I was little). I have a mini lamancha and a Nigerian dwarf. When I go to college in a few years my grandparents plan on taking mine and adding to their herd. My grandma can only drink goats milk so it all works out. Something I have considered for them is to raise a few meat goats to sell to 4h-ers and stuff. Is this stupid to do? They would be breeding lamanchas, mini lamanchas, Nigerian dwarfs, and boers. Overall, I would make all herd decisions, they would just care for the animals. So is this stupid to do? What is the difference between raising dairy and mear. Can I raise them all together?
