Goats / Sheep per acre
I ive in the San Angelo area.
I have about 25 acres. Very good top soil no rocks. It is along the river. About 18 acres is improved and about 8 acres of mesquite.
If I improve the open area with the proper goat forage how may goats and or sheep can I run per acre?
The area will be cross fenced.
There is no standard answer for your question as it depends in the amount of forage produced by your improved pasture. It will require some local spacific knowledge. I would suggest you contact the Tom Green County Extension agent: Josh Blanek, 325.659.6524, email@example.comOther resoruces include your local Natural Resource Conservation Service.For starters on the improved pastures 7 goats equal to 1 cow.
