Why are goats important?
They are an economical source of meat protein ie you can graze more goats than cattle on poorer country. Goats, depending on the breed, can provide meat, milk and fibre.
When looking to buy goats there are a few factors you should first consider. The most important question is if you would like breeding or milking goats. Also, the age of the goat is an important consideration, baby goats must be raised before yielding milk while elderly goats have probably already stopped producing.
