One day I would like to have a small dairy goat farm.

Goats are some of the sweetest critters out there. And working with them is like heaven.

Heaven that occasionally pees on your feet or coughs cud onto your jeans.

Goat Dairies

babygoatsandfriends:

Time for an educational goat dairy post! I realize everyone has differing views when it comes to thing like this, but let’s not force each other’s opinions upon one another.

First of all, goat cheese is somewhat of a growing business in the US. Most of it is produced on small sustainable farms. Goat cheese is much more popular in Europe and elsewhere. Yes, the babies are taken from the mothers when they are born. I know this is kind of sad. But this ensures that all the babies get enough milk and don’t get stepped on by a bigger goat. (I’m sure there are other reasons too, but I won’t go into it). 

Goat dairies usually keep a few does (female goats), that they use to breed every year with usually a few male goats (bucks). Then they keep the offspring that they want that will have the highest milking potential. What happens to the baby male goats? They are sold, and often castrated. There is actually a big market for people who want wethers (castrated male goats) as pets. Yay!

Now I will include some of my own pictures. They are from Prairie Fruits Farm, a goat dairy with about 100 milking goats, in Champaign, Illinois. This is what the goats look like when they’re being milked. They get yummy grain to eat. The mechanism keeps the goats from moving while they are being milked.

The farm milks the goats twice a day. The rest of the time, the goats  just hang out and be goats. They have lots of space and are very happy.

Two ways of dealing with tear gas grenades from comrades in Turkey: Either submerge them in water. Make sure you can close off the container cause the gas will still spread for a while. Or throw them in the fire so the gas burns off before it can spread.
