You can raise goats for fun, for milk and/or meat even for their fiber. (angora or cashmere)

What breed ... I like a Nubian/Alpine cross. Why...:dunno:... Maybe because that was the first goats I got 25 years ago.

I've had LaMancha & Saanen goats in the past and they are a great milking breeds but for one reason or another we didn't keep them long.

Right now I'm milking one Nubian (3 year old) and I'm getting right at a gallon per day. That is half in the morning and half at night.

The Encyclopedia of Country Living by Carla Emery has a great chapter on goats, cows and home dairy.:D

Yes ... goat milk is different from cow but when you think about it ...'store milk' is different from raw milk and they are both different from dry milk. :)

As for the meat ... no ... it does not taste like chicken. lol I would put it in with venison. (if I had to.)

I like goat milk :dunno: ... but it is a fact, some people don't.

hardrock, visit some goat farms or a person that has a few goats ... read ... read ... and ask questions. :goodluck:
