Goats: No to pet. No to commercial. Yes to productivity

I raised a goat for a year for a local county 4H project. You must have a 6 foot fence around them. Mine jumped out and after 3 hours I finally caught him. Also, they make horrible pets. They are normally not calm and don't like coexisting with humans. I raised only one goat and had enough of it by the time I was done. It would constantly whine and make loud annoying noises (I think because he was alone and din't have a companion). He constantly would jump trying to get out of his protected territory. The best part about goats is that they are very productive for cleaning out a pasture of weeds. I've raised cattle, swine, horses, ducks, and dogs. I highly recommend swine or dogs as pets or commercial. Goats are best if you rent them from someone for a week to clean out your land of weeds!
