Dairy goats are small ruminants domesticated for their milk and meat, among other things. Dairy farming is a simple job and is very profitable. What follows are some tips about how to raise a dairy goat.
An idea of ritual dinner, ruling in Chinese cuisine, will be useful too, and, first of all, an idea of famous Chinese tea-drinking. This prolonged ritual contributes not only to rest, peace, removal of stresses, but also to rallying of all members of a meal, strengthening of a family.
Of course, we should not necessarily obtain such products for a family meal. Nevertheless you goat slaughtering can take something from Chinese cuisine. Why not paying more attention to decoration of dishes? You know, food, decorated in a cranky way (say, cookie, baked in the form of woman’s lips, breast, nates) will attract attention for sure. Such culinary specialities will cause a gust of emotions, awaken imagination and fancy, tune to a proper sexual mood.
A female goat in a farm can start mating after the age of seven to nine months while it can be milked when the goat reaches a year. Goats give birth easily, so no special help is needed. However, the farmers need to make sure that the kids nurse from their mother, if they don’t, they should be fed from a bottle. This should be done right after the kid is born as this is when it receives the critical first milk which is called colostrum. After it is fed with colostrum containing minerals, vitamins and antibodies for a few days, the kid could be fed with milk formula or could nurse from its mother.
Establish communications with the local farmers and other goat breeders in your locale. If you have to join regional livestock organizations, cooperatives or clubs, then do so. These are the people who can teach you how to put prices on the goat products you want to sell. Depending on the supply-and-demand scheme, these people will inform you the competitive prices of whole goat meat, goat milk (and other milk based products,) mohair (and other goat fibers,) and pet goat for sale.
You are your own master and only you know how you feel after eating certain foods. My recommendation is to experiment and observe the kinds of foods you eat and determine how you feel. For example, when you eat whole goat meat, how do you feel in the hours afterward? Do you feel energetic, alive and balanced? Or, do you feel tired and have indigestion? Again, you are the master of your body.
Animal foods contain vitamin D. Most commonly eaten plant foods do not. Animal foods contain the true version of vitamin A, retinol. Plants do not contain retinol. They contain beta-carotenes, which are converted to retinol in the digestive process, albeit less efficiently.
Even with all the science and technology available to goat farmers these days, nothing could beat a buck’s (male goat) ability to detect female goats in heat. Investing in one or more buck for your goat farm might be a good idea. Or, you could always ask other goat farmers to “lend” you a male goat 2 weeks before your estimated time when most of the does come in heat.
