Hi everyone, I have been doing some research and am very serious about getting dairy goats. I'm located in central MD, w/ 27 rolling acres (5 of which are pasture) a couple of horses and chickens. I have an area ready for goats (according to the many suggestions from posts on this site). I was thinking of starting small in case the milking thing doesn't work out for me. I read a post that suggested pygmy goats for milking--do they really work well? That way I could always just keep them as pets if I didn't enjoy milking them. I am really striving for a more self-sufficient lifestyle and want to give this a try. Any suggestions?
