We have homesteaded now for 25 years. Raised goats for that long and still have 9 goats..for milk and cheese etc. Went to the Easter Auction on Monday and of course you get all "gun-ho" on goats when you see what the prices are at Easter time. We know it's the best time of year and usually around here you can't give a buck away when you have them !! But hubby thought...if we bought up the bucks and raised them for next year we could make a few "bucks"...no pun intended !! :haha: My concern is we don't have much acreage..only 4 acres. Which we have the goats..3 horses and usual chickens etc. We buy all our hay and feed and do our own fencing which is hard enough to keep up with as is. I'm not ..not in favor of trying to make a few dollars...but have any of you done this. I would want separate shelter for them away from the "family" goats. I still would want to give them their shots, worming and good hay. Do we make them all weathers..?? But hubby says we don't have to grain bucks ??!! Everything to me deserves the best of care and I know I will make them into pets which isn't all that bad becaue I realize what their end will be in the beginning of this adventure. I don't know...what do you all think ???
