For the Love of Goats
Today we are stepping out of the milk, meat, and fiber goat worlds. We are talking about the elite athletes of the caprines — pack goats — with our guest Marc Wornke of packgoats.com. We’re discussing how to choose future pack goats, as well as training, and feeding. These are not your typical pet wethers that spend their days lounging in the pasture. These goats grow bigger than any I’ve ever seen. They walk several miles per day while carrying one-third of their body weight. We also talk about how they compare to using horses, mules, or llamas for packing adventures.
To celebrate the launch of the podcast, I decided to give away one of my online courses at Thrifty Homesteader Academy! Since some of you already have one or more, the winner gets to choose which one you want.
