Goat Farming for Pleasure & Profit
It's possible to support your family with 50 goats on five acres. There have been a number of fads in the livestock farming industry. A few have worked but only for a short period of time. Eighty percent of Texas' cattle ranchers either break even or report a loss. Goats, the world's most popular red meat, reproduce twice as fast, forage on the same land, and earn 25 percent more than cattle. Learn how to care, feed and produce goats. This class also addresses developing a plan for earning a living from your goats (meat, dairy, brush, show and breeding types) and the number crunching required to make it work. NOTE: A field trip to the instructor's farm in Alvin is included.
