Owning and Raising Goats: The How to on All Things Goats
I have been owning and raising goats for years. I am continuing to learn how to take better care of these amazing critters. Knowing what I know now, I could have saved so much time, money and frustration if I had a trusted resource for all things goat related. There is so much information out there to sift through and I often learned the hard way that not all of it is true or best practice.
It is really painful to see so much false information or bad practices being shared in the goat community. So, I wanted to do something about it. One of our missions at Packgoats.com is to become a leading resource on all things for owning goats. We want to help others feel confident about the information they are relying on to successfully care for their goats.
We hope to help standardize information. Our goal is to compile information that is vetted and reviewed by some of the leading goat authorities in the country. No matter what kind of goat owner you are (dairy, meat, show, packer or pet) we want to provide you with the best resources to be as successful as possible.
We have officially launched our first course: How to Raise a Baby Goat. In this course we cover topics such as transportation, pasture set up, feeding, nutrition, vaccinations, worming, castration, disbudding, training and manners. We hope that this course proves to be a great resource for new and even long standing goat owners. For me, if I had known what I know now, I would be a lot farther along. So, my hope is that I can do that for you.
Looking to the future, we plan to have courses on nutrition, health and wellness, pasture set up, pack goats, dairy goats, meat goats, birthing… You name it, we want to provide it. We look forward to being helpful. This is one way that we can be good stewards of the goat owning community.
