Goats are browsers, not grazers. No, that does not mean that they prefer walking through the farm supply store checking out the latest goat accessories. Browsers are animals that prefer to eat leaves, overgrown weeds, small bushes, and baby trees, rather than grazing grass. So, if you have overgrown, brushy property, rather than pastures of lush green grass, you would provide a heavenly home for a goat!
“Did you know” will appear every Monday through December to celebrate a fun goat fact in celebration of the publication of Raising Goats Naturally: A Complete Guide to Milk, Meat, and More
