Goat milk might be recommended in cases of dyspepsia, peptic ulcer, and pyloric
stenosis. It is preferable to cow milk in many cases of liver dysfunction and
jaundice because the fat globules are smaller (2 microns versus 2 to 3 microns
for cow milk). These smaller fat globules provide a better dispersion of fat in the
milk and thus a naturally homogenized mixture. (There is more involved in the “
natural homogenization” of goat milk than the size of the fat globules, as we shall
see shortly ...

My friend Anna Boll Johnson was the first child I guided into the world of goats.
Anna started helping on my farm at the age of thirteen. Someday I hope to be
able to show her new daughter, Elsie, some descendants of the animals that her
mother showed. My daughter, Viveka, twelve, now provides me with firsthand
knowledge of animal husbandry as seen through the eyes of children. Kids —
human and goat — go together naturally. During my years raising and learning
about goats, ...

Initially the Kilguses were disappointed but understood that Frontera being loyal
to its farmers was a good thing for the family: “Once they find something they like,
they don't switch. Which is good for Justin and Trent, because they use their
goats for meat.” Justin and Trent are Paul's two boys, and Marty Travis at Spence
Farm helped to connect them to Chicago chefs. They were both still in high
school when they applied for a Frontera Farmer Foundation grant, got it, and
began raising ...

However, some ranchers worry that they would need to keep the cattle away from
the goats when they are kidding. However, goats' natural instincts would cause
them to go and find a hollow or bush to kid in, so it is unlikely that they would be
bothered by the cattle. If you are already set up for cattle, you may find that raising
goats will bring you new challenges and opportunities. You cannot treat a goat in
a cattle squeeze chute, if that is what you already have. On the other hand, you ...

Because goat milk is naturally homogenized, the cream does not rise to the top
as readily as it does in cow milk. If you want to separate it for whipping, or to
make ice cream or butter, you'll need a hand- crank or electric cream separator. If
you'd like to keep your household in homemade butter, you'll also need a hand-
operated or electric churn. This equipment is fairly costly, but pays for itself if you'
re big on cream and butter. Cream separated from goat milk is pure white, unlike
the ...

Will Sheep Destroy Brushwood. The statement is frequently made through the
press that sheep will destroy brushwood, just as effectually as goats, and the
question whether they will or not is often asked by those who contemplate the
purchase of either goats or sheep to clear their land. The sheep is naturally a
grazer, but it will browse a little occasionally, while the goat is naturally a browser
and will graze occasionally. Sheep will not long thrive or even subsist upon a
brushwood diet.

Disbudding, depending on goat breed and gender, could be needed as early as
a few days of age, or whenever you can clearly feel the horn buds. Hair growth
over the horn bud should be palpated (i.e., felt by hand) so you can avoid trying
to disbud a naturally polled (i.e., hornless—which is generally rare) kid. The hair
on the horn bud will grow in a swirl over the horn bud, whereas the hair on a
polled kid will grow flat over the horn area. Most importantly, you will need an
effective ...

With freezer sales, customers select a goat or arrange for the purchase long
distance. You then deliver the animal to an approved slaughterhouse, after which

Stanton, Module 7, in Langston University's Web-based Training and Certification
Program for Meat Goat Producers. Organic or Natural Chevon While most goat
