Goat Mania Is Setting In

We've been thinking about adding goats to the farm. Making soap and cheese would add year-round income, which would be very good. We've been doing our research, reading some books, searching online. We had a great chance yesterday to get a little more up-close-and-personal. The Manitoba Royal Winter Fair is happening in Brandon, and we saw that the Manitoba Goat Association was doing a presentation. MGA president Bill Paulishyn was manning the booth and giving the presentation. We had an awesome opportunity to ask our questions and get some Manitoba-specific information! You see, very few of the books we've read talk about caring for goats in the extreme cold temperatures of our winters. Great to have some questions answered! Then, we wandered over to the petting zoo - and watched the baby goats! They're so adorable!
