3rd October 2020


Description

Goats for Beginners is perfect whether you want to learn how to keep goats or just fancy spending a day on the farm getting to know these intelligent and friendly animals.

In this hands-on day you will:

  • Find out how much land you’ll need to keep goats and the type of shelter you will need to provide.
  • Learn about different breeds of goats and their unique characteristics!
  • Cover administrative essentials: including getting your CPH number, completing movement licenses and ear tagging rules.
  • Learn how to feed, handle, and fence your goats, as well as understand the essential welfare needs of a goat.
  • Learn how to spot common problems and how to treat them.

This course is very practical and will have lots of hands-on time with our goats. At the end of the day we hope you’ll leave with the confidence and enthusiasm to keep your own goats.

Lizzie Dyer set up Just Kidding, a free-range kid goat farm from scratch. She’ll share her experiences and guide you on your way to owning your own goats.
