, $10 – $20

Learn about the basics of raising goats, and the different opportunities and uses for this species of livestock, with Leslie Svacina. Leslie raises a growing herd of forty goats on her farm, Cylon Rolling Acres.

Goats are one of the most popular species of livestock across the globe. They’re small in size, take less space to raise, and are fairly easy to handle. Goats have numerous purposes as livestock on the farm or homestead.

The class will focus on the basics of raising goats, such as shelter, feeding, and other animal husbandry practices. Leslie will also touch on what’s needed for rotationally grazing goats on pasture and cover the different opportunities with goats, including meat, dairy, fiber, brush management, and more.

This class will be a good overview for farmers or homesteaders who might be interested in adding goats to their acreage.
