Four-legged fertiliser factory

Goats make great gifts!

They are excellent breeders. The male can start breeding at 7 weeks old!

The female produces 1-5 kids per litter, and can continue producing her entire 10-12 years of life.

Goat milk is an excellent food source for children. Their meat is also important for feasts for marriages and funerals.

Yet the part of the goat families often value the most ... is what comes out the back end!

Goat manure and urine make excellent fertiliser, increasing crop yield so the whole family can eat – and have excess to sell!
