    I have to say that to me, the part of getting dairy goats that was most worrying was being able to sell any babies we were not planning on keeping. We don't have the property to keep more than 3 or 4 goats at most and I don't have the money to keep "pet" wethers. When we had two boys and a girl born in mid-January, I immediately began worrying about what we were going to do with them. I am not adverse to having one processed for meat if need be, but I would rather sell them.

    As of yesterday, both our boys have new homes to go to (we are keeping the girl)! One is going to be a breeding buck in a herd of nigerians and lamanchas, and the other a wether in a children's club where they learn about animal husbandry. They will both stay with us for about another month, but I really feel better knowing they have homes.

    Good for you! Finding homes for the extra boys is always a challenge.
