Learn about backyard goats, milking them, etc.

  • Needs a date

  • Needs a location

  • I'm new to this group, don't have any goats of my own but really want to check out some of the goats that you all have. I'd like to learn how to milk them, feed and care for them and just in general have a goat experience. Is there anyone who is interested?

    I don't have any goats (yet). I am interested in learning all I can about goats as I plan to have some in the future.

    What's the update on this event? I am seriously thinking of adding Boer goats to my urban place (.22 acres).

    My husband and i are interested in getting a few miniature dairy goats as part of our goal of becoming more self sustaining. We are looking to meet others who have goats in the area to learn from. If this meet-up were to happen, I'd be happy to host it at our house, although we don't have any goats or experience so someone else in the group would have to provide the information. I'd just offer the space so it can actually happen.
    Thanks,
    Sara

    Hi, if you'll send an e-mail to me at my e-mail: [masked], I can send you some directions and a drawing I did, for the total never-done-it-before newbie, on how to milk a goat. My directions were actually for a sheep, but it makes no difference :-) ... except a female goat might have horns you could use, to help tie her in place, whereas a female sheep is highly unlikely to have horns (although I've had one or two who grew like 2-inch vestigial horn stubs, so, it can happen).

    Also, check out this used-to-live-in-Buda goat expert's page for ALL sorts of outstanding advice (and you can join her newsgroup) - She has a TON of articles she's written that are all about goats - tons of stuff on nutrition, emergency wound and injury care, birthing, parasites, you-name-it:: http://www.tennesseemeatgoats.com/articles2/articlesMain.html

    Hope that helps!

    Regards,
    -Lauren

    We have a Nubian, Pygmy and Spanish goat (along with 2 donkeys and a chicken- yes a chicken!) that are registered therapy animals. I would also like to offer my Lodge for meetings if you ever have the desire to travel this way. Look forward to meeting the group

    I am a new member and live in Spring Branch about 70 miles from Austin. Would love to attend your functions when I can. We do run a bed and breakfast and my place can get booked last minute.
