I'm interested in getting some goats, but know almost nothing about them. I'd probably want two does at first, and they would be mainly for pets and showing at 4-H fairs. A friend of mine has some Nubian goats, so I'd probably get Nubians or another full-size goat breed like Toggenburgs. I'm not really interested in smaller goats like Nigerian Dwarfs or Pygmy goats. I've only had experience with chickens, never any larger livestock. So, I have a few questions to ask! : First of all, how much space do goats need (like, how many square feet)? What type of fencing is best for goats? Would electric fencing work, or would wood fencing or wire mesh fencing work better? How tall does fencing need to be to contain the goats? Are goats susceptible to predator attacks (do they need to be locked inside at night?)? How hardy are goats? Do they get a lot of diseases? How much milk does a milking doe produce each day? What do you feed goats? Just hay/pasture, or do they they need grain (if so, what type of grain/feed)? About how much time would it take to care for two goats each day? How much do they eat/drink? Are goats winter hardy? What other care do goats require? (I know they need their hooves trimmed, but is there anything else?) Thanks in advance for any answers to any of these questions!
