Hey guys. :] I'm new to this forum. I'm not an owner of any goats, nor will I be for several years, but I've recently been really captivated by the idea of having a few acres when I'm older and being able to produce quite a bit of my own food on my land. I've looked into goats for their milk, and I have been calculating about how much a month it would be to feed them. I went by this website's guidelines of what they feed their does, http://fiascofarm.com/goats/feeding.htm and got in touch with an organic feed producer who gave me a quote for their dairy goat feed. They charge $19 for a 50 lb bag. Does that seem about right? I calculated the yearly cost of feeding two does who are pregnant for 5 months and then milked for the remaining 7 months of the year as $1530. This includes 7 bales of hay per month at around $7-8 for a bale(that's about the price for the area I'm looking at owning a property in in the future), adding a few bales for waste. All of this came out to around $130 a month to feed the goats. Does this sound about right to you? For two does? Thanks so much! I'm pretty weird and really like researching these kind of things, and I'm doing so for every animal that I'd like to keep on my homestead in the future.
