I know that right now I consider myself a hobby farmer and just getting my herd established and set up. Also that most dairy goat owners are hobby owners, but for some reason a comment that was made on a Boer goat forum kinda upset me. Dairy goat breeders were here long before the Boers and were a established industry already I thought. I don't know maybe I just took the comment the wrong way, as I see several dairy breeders that have established yourselves and I would consider selling cheeses, milk, soaps and other goat milk products as a industry. Here is the comment that was made: "The majority of dairy goat & Nigerian members are hobby farmers. There are a lot more boer goat breeders that treat this as an industry and make a living selling goats for meat."
