1. GOATS ARE ESCAPE ARTISTS
There is a reason why your goats may escape and that is because the fencing is inadequate and the other reason is that there in not enough food to eat in the paddock.
The goats we farm today are domesticated and not the feral goats of yesterday.


2. GOATS EAT EVERYTHING
Goats do not eat everything especially tin cans which some people seem to think is true. Goats do not eat tin cans!!
They are curious!! Like us goats have high mineral and vitamin needs and have to eat from a variety of food groups to get these minerals as different plants supply different minerals. Like us they are browsers.

3. GOATS CANNOT BE FARMED WITH OTHER ANIMALS
Yes they can! Goats are very social animals. If you look around farms or lifestyle  farms you will see a goat amongst sheep or cattle or other livestock.
Goats integrate well with cattle as they don’t share the same parasites.
Goats graze at a different level to cattle so the pasture is not burdened by over eating. Goats also integrate with other livestock well.

4. GOATS WILL MOW YOUR LAWN
No they will not! But they will get rid of your weeds!! People think goats just eat grass. Do people just eat bread and water? Goats will eat a varied diet like us and that includes grass but is not the primary source of food.

5. GOATS ALL HAVE HORNS
Not all goats have horns. Horns are used as a protection device toward predators. Angoras, both male and females have horns. In the Ankara region in Turkey, where they come from there are wolves and so angoras need to protect themselves.
Goats without horns are due to their breed.
