I’ve decided to compile a simple guide to raising and milking goats. Female goats are called DOES or DOELINGS as babies.
When I first was interested in getting a goat or two, I had NO IDEA how it all worked. We use essential oils for our health care needs, we homeschool our kids, and now we milk goats. Male goats are called BUCKS or BUCKLINGS as babies.
I actually enjoy milking my friend’s goats for a week or so because I used the extra milk to make a lot of cheese! I think I just about covered everything I can think of.
The best way to find goaty friends near you is to join the American Goat Society.
(Although it would be pretty fun to have a couple fainting goats, am I right?
