    the goats are for weed control and pasture maintenance, they were in the field when i walked to the shop for some parts.

    i demoed a portable steel cover and i'm making them a nicer shelter than the temp. they sleep in now.

    i can safely say that i am the only guy on this forum with more kids than argos.

    I like goats, they make pretty decent pets.

    i really enjoy kidding season anymore, my survival rate has been 187% or higher, since i modified the breeding program.

    these goats are 3 fold,weed control, meat (they're very tastey) and the kid sale covers property tax. it's a win win situation for all.

    How do you get 187% survival rate? Do they multiply if you get them wet?

    One of the most memorable meals I ever ate was kid ribs off the grill. We were raking hay at a milk goat farm and they treated us to lunch. Saanens and Toggenburgs as I recall. Circa 1978.
