What is the average income for the average Cashmere doe? What is the average yearly cost for a Cashmere doe?

Same questions for Angoras.

Just curious. Thanks!

Can't give you an exact dollar amount right off hand, but in our experience with Angoras, being smaller animals they eat less than our standard dairy goats.

Expenses for fiber animals to consider are shearing(will you do it or pay someone) and lice prevention which is not a usual cost for dairy.

Income would depend on factors such as your fleece market, if you sell commerically or niche market (handspinners), quality of fleece from your animals, quality of your animals (show, pet, etc.)
