Goat Care 101

This Page is under construction. I will add to it as time allows.

This page is to help you learn more about GOATS!

Here you will find basic information about every aspect of having goats.

By no means am I an expert, I am always learning new things and I hope that this information will be of some help to you on your goat journey. I an not an expert, and I am not a veterinarian, so please if you have any concerns about your goats or if you have a sick goat, consult your veterinarian.

In giving this information, I am not saying this is how it has to be done. I am saying this is how we do things here on our farm and that this is what works for us.
