5. Setup a good goat housing and fencing


Goats, whether you raise them for meat or milk, need basic protection from things like snow, wind, rain, heat, etc.
 
It is also necessary to build a simple barn for the goats to protect them and protect them from predators. Goats are known to get out of the yard, so you'll need a serious tight fencing  for them.

Goats cannot cope with extreme cold and rain. It is therefore enough to protect them from strong winds, rain and winter snow.
 
If you are kidding in winter, you will generally need a sturdy building for your pregnant and/or nursing goats and kids. For commercial goat farming, you will need to build a special house to keep goats.
 
Make sure there is plenty of fresh air and sunlight indoors. Make sure to install a proper drainage system in the house for easy cleaning.

6. Grazing to reduce feed costs
 
If you have enough space on your farm for this, it would be wise to do it. Create a pasture for your goats. This will greatly reduce the cost of raising your goats.
 
You can save more money by having your goats eat fresh and healthy food from the farm. Best methods to make pasture for your goats is by fencing the entire area.
 
Fencing for the goat needs to be secure, not just keeping them, but to keep predators- Fox, wild, and so on.


7. Buy a few starting buck and some does(male and female goats)
 
The health and well-being of your starter goats continues to determine your success in farming.
 
Make sure your starters are plentiful, disease-free and healthy. If you don't know how to select the best goats for your goat business, consult a professional.
 
You can go to a veterinarian to check the goat's health. When you buy money and things that happen, the number of things that happen should be more than money.
 
You can buy one or two buck do most of the work on your goat farm.

 8. Breed the does so they will reproduce
 
When it comes to raising goats, there are some things you should know about raising goats. If you don't know, goats must give birth before they can produce milk.
 
You should also know that male goats can breeds as young as 7 weeks old. But this is not wise because you want to produce strong, healthy goats from mature parents.
 
Females come into heat every 21 days and last about one to three days. Some species, such as Nigerians, Boers, Spanish, Pygmies, and (sometimes) Nubians, can breed every year.
 
When females are in heat, keep them together a buck for mating. Buck can make many rounds without feeling weak, except in winter when the weather is very cold.
 
After sex, the average gestation period for a mother is between 145 and 155 days. 

So, you can expect a goat (goat) to start giving birth after 155 days.

9. Take care of the bucks
 
To produce healthy children, you must ensure that the goat is healthy.
 
Feed them well with high-nutrient foods. Ensure that the buck is in good health before breeding.

10. Provide fresh food for your goats

To keep your goat healthy, you must feed them healthy and fresh food.
 
Make sure you always give the goats clean and safe water. This will increase your production and give your goats immunity.


11. Balance your finances and expenses
 
In the first year of starting a goat breeding business, you may experience losses in your account.
 
Don't panic and close the deal immediately. Usually in your first year, you will have to pay a lot of money.
 
These fees will not repeat again until  after a long period of time. By continuing to produce goats from your farm, you will soon break even and start making a profit.
