buy milky way and moonbeam -$130 feed for a year -$264 kidding= 4 kids to sell ($60 average for kids around here) +$240 buy 2 breeding age does (about $100 each if from a friend) -$200 kidding= 4 kids to sell +$240 worth of milk +$ ???? about how much would the milk be worth? one person said 4 to 8 dollars a gallon for goat milk depending on the area... but how much milk does a doe usually produce? one of my books says 1pint to 6quarts a day per doe. so average 3quarts a day= 162.5 gallons in five months. 162 gallons at $4 a gallon= $648 milk for one goat= $1296 for two and $2592 for four. i will be using about 1 gallon a day though for drinking/in food. i was writing a sort of sketch-plan for money-use-in-a-year type thing. in my plan the goats are bred jan. 1 =kidding about may 30= sell babies at 12wks= buy breeding age does aug.= breed aug. 1= kidding about dec. 28= sell babies at 12wks which would be march of the next year. so... what do you think?
