Going into Goats: A practical guide to producing goats in the rangelands

Introduction

Welcome to the goat industry’s guide to producing goats in the rangelands. This has been developed by producers for producers and draws upon the experience of over 50 goat producers operating in Australia’s rangelands.

While the majority of goats produced in the rangelands are rangeland goats; a composite breed of goat incorporating dairy, fibre and meat goat genetics that has evolved in Australia over the past two hundred years, this guide also relates to the production of specific goatmeat breeds such as Boer goats.
