We used to have goats when I was a teen, had them about 10 years.
They are really good at ruining stuff, likes trees barns ect. Ours ran on over 70 acres of land. They LOVE brush
and fruit trees
Some goats have really good tasting milk, others
so I would suggest you taste before buying the goat! Oh and NEVER keep a buck with your nannies, Actually, never keep a buck unless you live FAR from your neighbors or you want them to hate you.
We did love having all that milk though. And goats are very easy for children to care for
Another thing to maybe consider is there are mini cattle that are milk cows giving about a gallon a day. Will have to think of the name of them, rats I have mommy brain. One is Dexter, but I dont think thats the smallest one. Because of their small size they are very easy to care for. I think when we move to the country we will get some type of a milk cow, abet small one.
