I have a very small herd of dairy goats, we are milking two does right now and will be milking 3 next year if they all freshen well. We have lamanchas and an alpine. We use them for milk for us which we turn into yogurt, cheese, and soap. We also feed a fat pig and raised some sheep on the milk. The bucks are wethered and slaughtered when they are big enough. I really love raising goats they are great pets and great providers of meat and dairy, plus they have amazing personalities. We mostly breed for hobby and the health benefits especially since raw milk is illegal to sell in Colorado. We do not have our own buck due to only having the 3 does it wouldn't be worth it. We have an amazing friend with a large dairy herd of exceptionally nice goats so we breed to her bucks.
