I have been researching meat goats for a while now but I am having a hard time finding info on how much profit is in it. It seems like most people raise goats as pets or for a hobby. We have about 3 acres of pasture that we could fence off. Is there any profit to be made with a smaller, high quality herd on 3 ish acres? We are thinking of focusing on a small high quality registered herd that could be sold for breeding stock, market, local Mexican population, and for our own freezer. Kikos really interest me, but they seem impossible to find near Ohio. The ones I have seen for sale look poor quality and rangey and overpriced. Right now we are considering both purebred Kikos, Boers and crosses of the 2. Also, is it true that Most Kiko herds are infected with CL, etc? I rarely see meat goat websites mention anything about disease testing in their herds and this worries me as far as being able to buy clean stock to start a clean herd. Thank you!
