About Our Goats

The Lost Shoe Ranch raises two types of goats - the Nigerian dwarf goat and the pygmy goat. Here's how they're different.

Nigerian dwarf goat - Native to West Africa, this goat is known for its easy temperament. These goats are also said to be excellent "milkers." Indeed, the Nigerian dwarf goat's milk has very high levels of butterfat. This means that the milk is really creamy and sweet. Moreover, these goats are also said to be popular choices as pets. You just have to make sure that they do not succumb to heat stress.

​Pygmy goat - This goat traces its origins to Cameroon Valley of West Africa. It is a hardy creature that is known for being able to adapt to any kind of weather. It's not particularly known for its milk. It's always its endurance that gets emphasized. 

​The Lost Shoe Ranch lists the reasons why it thinks that goat farming is great for the environment. They are the following:
1. Goats are multipurpose animals. Even if you're not raising goats for their meat, they can give you milk - which is the main ingredient of cheese. There are also certain types of goats that produce wool.

2. Goats are low-maintenance animals. These creatures aren't picky eaters. They eat a little bit of everything, which includes weeds, leftovers, and so on. They do not require a special diet. They just happily munch away.

3. Goats are "living weed whackers." These creatures roam around any property and graze on weeds. With them around, farmers are always ahead of the "weed situation." So, they keep the land weed-free and their appetites are satisfied. There is absolutely no doubt that it's a win-win situation.

4. Goats enrich the land. Goat manure significantly improves the condition of the soil. Thus, plants can easily grow in it. Goat manure is also not as unsightly as the manure of bigger farm animals such as cows.
