Goats are one of the original partnerships between animals and humans.
Goats and cattle are cooperative, compatible species; they increase productive use of the mixed grass and treed pastures. These mixed pastures provide shelter for cattle, native deer, and other wildlife, encouraging biodiversity for a healthy eco-system.
Goats, especially the Nigerian Dwarf breed, produce high-quality milk that is easier for humans to digest and tastes great. Learn more about ND goat milk elsewhere on our site.
Goats are incredibly cute. Watching and petting them is thought to lower stress. They are funny and loving and much easier to feed than velociraptors.
