Hi -- you will find a lot of helpful information at http://articles.extension.org/goat.

There are many resources there about establishing a meat goat enterprise. Some good sources of information are Langston University http://www.luresext.edu/ , Penn State http://extension.psu.edu/courses/meat-goat , the Ethiopia Sheep and Goat Productivity Improvement Program http://www.esgpip.org/Technical_Bulletins.html , Empire State Meat Goat Producers Association http://www.esmgpa.org/committees/starting.html , the Maryland Small Ruminant website http://www.sheepandgoat.com/#!articles/cj5a , and Florida A&M University https://www.famu.edu/cesta/main/assets/File/coop_extension/small%20ruminant/goat%20pubs/Facilities.pdf.

Beware of .com sites. Some are very good, others have inaccurate and dangerous information. Connect with a local veterinarian if you have access to one-- they will be very good at answering your questions as they arise,

These sites should be enough to keep you busy for a while. I encourage you to do a great deal of reading and investigating before you buy your first animal. Many people have lost a lot of money with goats because they didn't prepare well enough in advance, had no markets for their products, or couldn't turn a profit. Try to figure out how much it will cost you to raise a goat and how much you will be able to sell it for; if you can't make a reasonable profit, put your time elsewhere. Best wishes,

Thank For Your Answer
