And what the heck are they good for?

Milk, eating, fur, leather

Long story short: while going door to door today I ended up bringing two home. Don't ask! Wife still doesn't know!!

I don't have any but there's definitely a meat market around here. Milk and cheese too.

I have a question for goat owners too. Is it a requirement to build a fence out of pallets if you own goats?

We raised a few when I was growing up, I've never eat any, we milked ours, and there was a woman that would make butter and cheese out of the milk, delicious! Do you have a pen with electric fence? They can get out of most fences, if there not tall enough or if they don't have electric.

I have a nice holdoing pen and 1.5 acer lot that has fence that could and has been electric. Its a standard wire fence 4' tall. I'm gonna wrap it with chicken wire to keep rabbits in. Could easily double as goat pen?

Woven wire or barbed wire? Woven wire, you probably good to go, if it's bar Ed wire, that's okay if the strands are close together. 1.5 acres sounds DS like plenty for only two goats, if there isn't much grass and browse in there, you'll have to get some hay and feed. Good luck!

Use them as a tax right off. You are now officially a farmer. Like Hupurest said sell to middle easterners.It is the common practice around here.

I doubt they will have milk right now, unless they just had their young pulled off them. If they do, make sure you strain the milk and pasteurize it before drinking it.

Yes, you can skin and eat...

I prefer to get my kid goats fat first... I usually kill a goat or 3 every year, at about 80 lbs, but I eat weathers, casterated males...

I quarter mine, cut the ribs off the loin, then cook them low and slow, much like a pork
shoulder... I make a basting mix of, one beer, 2 lemons, 1 onion, 1 or 2 sticks of butter, garlic and pepper to taste...

As I am cooking the goat I basted it with a small mop every hour or so... cook until meat starts pulling off the bone...

Goat is the #1 eaten meat in the world... good stuff....

They are fine eating, save the bacon for bacon. If I cooked you a platter of deer and one of goat you might not tell which was which. The milk takes getting used to, I think. If a rabbit can get through a fence a goat or sheep can too. Never tried electric on goats, might work. If there is any thing at all to jump up on or climb the goats will. car, truck, shed roof etc,
