- Choosing the right goat is not an easy task. No one should ever ‘’go out and buy a goat’’ with out doing some homework first, otherwise, you will waste time, effort and money on it later. Do your research, it involves many steps.
- Do your homework- firstly, start by reading a variety of goat-related websites and forums online. Ask other goat owners about their experiences with different breeds, but always get information from different people because breeds that work well for one person may not work well for you
- Narrow your focus- secondly, be clear about what you want from your goats. If you like milk and cheese, you don’t want to waste your time with Boer goats. If you are looking for meat, there is no way to get a pygmy
- Lastly, be realistic about your available time and budget. Find goats that are healthy without any problems. This is especially important if you have a full-time job outside of farming, in which case a goat that requires constant monitoring, care, or care of expensive animals is not a good choice. Consider your budget when choosing goats
