not to long ago i cleared a spot out back to run a few goats. right now i have a boer billy, a band nubian(i entend to eat him) and a nubian/boer cross bred nanny. she was bred to a registered boer billy and is now knocked up. i gave a $100 for her. she has been bred a few times and normally drops triplets. i was going to turn a beef out back there, but got to thinking about it. i am geared up for processing deer. goats are about the same size as a deer. i don't have to buy anything special for processing the goats. right now i have a small building made for them that i busted up two bails of straw in. i built them a feed troff. the area they are in is covered in thorn bushes and saw briers. they have attacked the thorns and saw briers. i put a round bail of hay back there for them, a mineral block, and i give them a mixture of 19% protien sweet feed,cracked corn and alphala pellets twice a day. i used the water gate to dam up the stream. it used to be bout two inches deep, but now i have it backed up to around just over a foot. the stream starts in the field beside me from 4 fresh water springs. i figure by putting the kids in the deep freeze when they hit 75-100 pounds will help offset the feed bill here at home. anybody else raising goats for meat?
