Goat farming has become increasingly popular in recent years. This is not surprising, since goats can be kept easily and with little effort. The animals are kept for milk production, landscape maintenance or as a hobby. What you should pay particular attention to when keeping goats so that they stay healthy and satisfied. What needs to be considered when keeping goats? Even though there are many different breeds of goats, they all have similar traits. In order to keep the animals according to their species and needs, it is important to know the characteristics of their nature. Goats are curious and intelligent and like to get to know their surroundings exactly. Therefore, as a goat keeper, you should ensure that there is sufficient employment material in the barn, such as fresh straw daily or permanently installed brushes for grooming. The original habitat of the domestic goat is the mountains. Therefore goats are enthusiastic and agile climbers. Be sure to offer your goats climbing opportunities such as straw bales, wooden benches or tables. Make sure that your animals cannot reach electrical cables or lamps. Goats love to lie elevated. Treat your animals to shelves attached to the stable wall, on which they can lie in peace and observe the surroundings. Feed bars should separate the tread from the feed table. Since goats are big food jealousies, there are often fights around the feeding place. Therefore, the animal-feeding area ratio should be 1: 1. If all animals can eat at the same time, stress during feed intake is avoided. In winter goats should be kept in the stable, as they are more sensitive to cold weather than other grazing animals such as sheep. If your goats have run in the pasture in mild temperatures, the outdoor area must be fenced particularly well. Goats have a high jumping ability and are true breakout artists. At least 1.1 meters high, electrifiable nets, which are knotted in small meshes, are particularly suitable for fencing. It is best to have five live strands and check them daily for damage. A goat hay rack is ideal for feeding goats in the pasture. As social beings, goats are used to living in a herd. Therefore, never keep a goat alone, but at least two animals together. By socializing with the animals you avoid that they develop behavioral disorders. The animals feel good and stay healthy. If goats live in a herd, a hierarchy develops. Goats are assertive and persistent. Rank fights within the herd structure are therefore nothing special. In particular, there are wrangles when there are changes in the population due to the purchase of new goats. A new ranking must be restored. It is more relaxed for the herd if the stock is not supplemented by foreign animals, but the own offspring remains in the stock. When planning your goat pen, make sure that the feeding areas and playpen are designed in such a way that lower-ranking animals can avoid the higher-ranking animals. Dead ends should be avoided. Lower-level goats must also be able to eat and retreat relaxed. In order to avoid having to ascertain something important after the completion of the stable, it is advisable to look at other stables beforehand and to get detailed advice. Want more tips?

More and more people are deciding to start raising goats, and it is not hard to see why. They are relatively small; they can provide milk and/or meat; certain breeds' fleeces can be harvested for wool; and perhaps most importantly, goats can make great pets. Children love goats, and so does anyone who has ever taken care of them. However, before you consider raising goats or any other kind of livestock, you will need to determine three things: 1. Do you have the right facilities and the right amount of space? 2. Do you have the skills and the time needed to take care of livestock? 3. Are you ready to make a major commitment? It is easy, in your excitement, and especially if you have never raised livestock before, to overlook some of the basics of goat raising. Here is a checklist to help you to determine if raising goats is something you can do, should do, and want to do. If the answer to all of these questions is not "yes," then it may not be a good idea to begin raising goats. Do not forget, goats are living creatures, and committing to care for them is not something to take lightly. Do you have enough space? You will need at least 0.1 of an acre of lawn/yard per goat to provide adequate grazing and roaming space. Do you have or are you willing to install goat-proof fencing. You will need fencing made from welded wire (goats are strong) at least four feet high, with goat-proof boards at the top, all-around the grazing area. Do you have or are you willing to build a goat shelter? You do not need anything elaborate. A simple, three-sided shed will do, with at least 16 square feet per goat. Are you willing to start with more than one? Goats are herd animals, and need other goats around them in order to thrive. Is your property zoned correctly? In most cities, it is against the law to raise livestock in your backyard. Even in some rural areas, village or town zoning laws can mean that you are prohibited from raising livestock without expensive and time-consuming re-zoning. Check into it first. Do you have the time? Taking care of any animals involves committing to a certain minimum amount of time for daily care. You will need to have (or make) at least two hours or work-time each day to care for your goats. You will need goat-sitters for when you need to get away for a weekend; it is also worth pointing out. This Book Covers Why Raising Goats Goat Breeds features How to choose the right goat; choose the right breeder, how to choose a healthy Goat Preparing house for goat And Much More! Do you know a veterinarian who knows and can treat goats? If you live in a rural area, this should not be a problem. Check the Caprine Veterinary Resource Guide online if you cannot find a suitable vet in your area. Do you know anyone who raises goats? You will need expert help with a good many things, at the beginning, no matter how much research you do. When you purchase goats for the first time, take someone who has experience along with you or buy this book as your guide.
