So we're thinking about buying some goats but we've never dealt with them before and I have some questions.
I believe goats are herd animals. How many goats should a person have? Is one sufficient as long as we spend enough time with it or do we need more?
What sort of facility to goats need? What do they need in the summer and what do they need in the winter?
What is the yearly cost to own a goat? Are there significant vet costs and what are the costs of food?
How much milk does a goat yield? We'd be getting them principally for the milk so we're looking into Nubians. Are there health or other problems we should be aware of with this breed?
How much area do they need to be happy and healthy?
