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 ...

Proper nutrition is crucial to successful dairy goat farming. Feeding a dairy goat is
not like feeding a pet. Milk production and pregnancy put heavy demands on a
goat's body that must be met with good nutrition. There are various schools of
thought regarding the feeding of dairy goats, from complete control of the diet to
allowing free pasture grazing. Goats naturally prefer foraging, but climate and the
shortage of sufficient pasture usually make it necessary to feed the goats at least

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, ...

Breeding. Methods. It would seem that for reproduction, all you would need is a
buck and a doe, which is basically true. However, for good management and to
maintain breeding improvement for your herd, it's not. Unless you just have goats
around to look at or to clear brush, you need to be a little more particular about
breeding methods. How you breed, when you ... It is hoped that by continually
saving only the polled and fertile, a pure strain will be achieved that is naturally

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 ...

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 ...

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
