Well I found some goats that interest me as for the milk and meat possibilities. One nanny is on the older side at 8 yrs old BUT she has triple girls that are coming with her. She is purebred Nubian, the doelings are ½ Boer so I figure even if mama is about due to retire the girls can be bred back to a Nubian buck for more dairy goats or Boer buck for meat in the freezer. I am getting the 4 of them for $90. Then she has another ½ Boer ½ Nubian 3 yr old nanny that is $65 and think I will also get purebred Nubian buckling that she has for $45. Now I just need to find some recipes for cheese... All you goat folk - what are some things I can look for to check general health of the goats? I know to look at the white of the eyes and gums to check for worms - is there anything else?
