The goats would provide basically lactose free milk for a few critters, & my grandson and cheese
The high butterfat of the Nigerian and lamanchas make better cheese. Most of my knowledge comes from books though but I've spoken to Boar goat raisers and went to state fair to pick the brains of dairy folks lol
My goal is alot like what you have there, 5 dairy goats. I would like for them to be reg. pure and all so the kiddos are a side crop. I intend to use the milk supply for rasing bottle calves and finishing meat birds.
