I have no knowledge of the small breeds, but upkeep price for my large goats are....$0.
I trim hooves every 8 weeks. When my horse gets trimmed, I walk out and do the goats.
That's it.
Oh, and worming.

Goats are pretty easy and inexpensive to keep. Initial cost depends on the breed and quality. Mine was free, but I'm not sure what breed she is. I think she's just a mutt, actually. A really cute mutt. X)

I think they require less effort than a dog. They stay outside, keep on air, and the only time I brush Adelia is in the spring when she sheds. I just use a horse shedding blade. She loves it. Looks like I killed a rabbit when I'm done, though. It leaves fluffies all over the ground. Which is kind of good, because birds use it for their nests.

When I read about goats they said it was important to give them grain. Especially if you are going to milk them.is this true?

Yes because the grain helps them with milk production.
