Tell me where. I'm in the market for a few milk goats. For the milk, not for the business :classic:Hipocrito Mejia said:I don't know about any specific breeds, but there are milk goats and sheep in DR. It's not a big business though.
A goat is sometimes simply a goat, and not a old fellow looking for a chica in Sosua...apostropheman said:never thought i'd be replying to a thread about goats but here goes:
Hipocrito Mejia said:You can find plenty of goats in the campo areas that lie between Santiago and La Vega. They are mostly used for their meat, and usually the stands that have them for sale will put them out on the side of the road the day before they are to be slaughtered, to show potential clients that they will be selling fresh meat.
The #1 and most well known goat area on the whole island is Azua, which is on the south coast. The saying in DR is that goats from Azua are preseasoned, because they mostly graze on wild oregano.:classic:
Yeah, the box man raises goats! Small world! Next week in Santiago... :classic:Hillbilly said:BALLs! Everyone "knows" that La Linea Noroeste is THE place for goats.
RE: Your question Chris: Go over to ISA here in Santiago. They have a goat program there. Yes, and for milk, too. A friend of ours --the guy that made your boxes, remember?--he raises goats, too.
