I have been looking for ways for our farm to feed our family. I recently got 2 min-milk goats. They are nigerian dwarfs. They are two pregnant does. They are due June 17th. I am so excited! Their names are Nessie (the brown one) and Oreo (black and white-duh). They are very friendly, alot like dogs. They want their food and attention, in that order. I have a steep learning curve to go from no goats to pregnant ones, but I can't wait!
Then I had the idea to raise lamb for meat. I have heard they are relatively easy to raise. You just put them on pasture and of course, give them water, then they grow and in the fall you butcher them. So I bought 3 little lambs. They are all girls and all black. They will grow horns. They are in a small temporary pen right now until we fence off the pasture for the goats and sheep to share. Hopefully they will provide about 50 lbs of meat each in the fall.
