I have kept standard size dairy goats on and off for years. I recently sold my goats and am interested in changing over to the pygmies with making cheese and having milk for home use as well as having them as pets. I like the idea of being able to stagger breeding/kidding dates which seems to be possible with the pygmies. Any tips on differences in their housing/ care, etc. would be appreciated. What kind of fencing works best for them as they are very small. Where is the best place to purchase them and what should I expect to pay for an animal suitable for my purposes?
Thanks for your help. I am an older person who loves animals and enjoys caring for them.
