If the skyrocketing demand for goat meat and profit potential don’t appeal to you too much, there are a bunch more reasons to consider raising meat goats:

Not only can you use goats to clear your own land, some farmers even rent out their goats to clear other farmers’ land!
Did you know that goat manure doesn’t smell, and it doesn’t attract insects like cow or horse manure does?

Like goat milk, cheese from goats is rich in vitamins, has less saturated fats and cholesterol, and has fewer calories.
Ever hear of cashmere or mohair? Those fibers come from goats!
If you’ve spent any time around goats, you know they can be both charming and hilarious! They’re usually pretty good-natured, too, so they’re great for children.
