Like humans, animals also need
proper nurturing and caring. They have the instinct to find food
whenever they are hungry and shelter whenever they are caught in
very cold or very hot weather mostly for warm blooded ones.
Goats, especially, are no exception. Since the earlier times,
goats have been very useful to man as domesticated animals in
the farm as source of milk, butter and fiber. Their skin and
hair are also used as clothing materials. Over the years, goats
have also become pets in many parts of the world. However, goats
of different breeds are widely seen in farms. Their meat known
as 'cabrito' or 'mutton' can also be sold in the market. These
are the main reasons why farmers intend to make their goats as
healthy as possible for future use. One of the details that
affect goats a lot is the shelter. Long time farmers have always
been careful when it comes building
goat house. They know so
well the demands of goats in terms of weather. Some farmers
though who are planning to raise their own flock tend to take
the risk as they lack the knowledge on
how to build a goat
house. This should not be the case.
Naturally, goats are not sensitive when it comes to their abode
as long as they can adjust to the temperature and as long as
they are protected from the harsh weather. There are instances
when goats are left to die amidst flooding or too much coldness
due their poorly built house. The number one enemy of farmers
that has huge impact on the goats is the weather. Cold weathers
tend to give the goats pneumonia which often lead to death.
If you are decided on putting up your own goat farm, it is
high-time you draw you plans. Below are some tips that would
