Thinking about raising Goats
Can anyone on this forum give me some info, and help me decide if I really want to try out this venture. We started raising chickens last year - and it has been fun (besides the neighbors Dogs being a problem). However, on another path to be self sufficient - I was thinking about Goats. Just a couple to provide milk, and possibly meat also. My questions are: How much money does it cost to feed and keep a couple goats? (I was thinking Pygmy breed). Also - we live on 5 acres but it is all wooded - is that an OK environment for them, or would they destroy everything? Also - are they real stinky, dirty?
As you can see I have no experience with Goats besides the petting zoos - so we'll have a lot to learn. But any advice would be appreciated. Thanks!
