I guess the thread about the free goats got me thinking. It seems that several posters either said or eluded to eating old milk goats when their production went down. Is this common? When I was a kid, we had goats, but we were vegetarians so the goats either died a natural death or were put down if they were sick/injured and then buried in the yard. I don't have goats now, but am planning on them next spring. So, do you eat your old milk goats? Is the meat actually any good? How do you decide when it's time for the freezer (or if you don't eat them, how do you decide when to put them down)?
