Looking in to beginning your market goat project?
Goats are a fun animal to work with. They're curious, inquisitive, intelligent, playful, and entertaining to watch. While you raise you're goat from 35 pounds to 70+ pounds you will learn important attributes such as responsibility, dedication, diligence, and integrity. You will be solely responsible (with the help, guidance, and support of our ag advisors (and your peers) for raising, training, and preparing a goat to show at the Merced County Fair in June. For more information on the time and financial requirements of raising a market goat and other information such as recommended feed, possible income, getting started, etc., check out the Market Goat Handbook (coming soon).
