the only challenge is having it in appreciable quantity for large scale farmwork
Well, it's mainly for people into subsistence farming.
Every household has this.


We have this bad goat that used to eat everything. Money usually miss in my house and fingers were pointed until we saw this bad mama goat chewing naira note. My mama refused to sell this thief of a goat because she always bear triplets. Can you imagine that? cheesy

U wash clothes and spread, she will feast on your clothes especially my mum's wrappers grin.
Very bad mama cheesy. Came back one time and she was gone. Mummy refused to tell me what made her sell that goat. Who knows, she did one she couldn't endure again.
Very big goat. Always bleating at the top of her voice cheesy

I noticed you have a poultry thread too and just added another yr to your life.

I pray your farm will grow to become a big farm in Nigeria and you will live long to enjoy the fruit of your labour.

How much is a female goat now? Fairly grown.

It varies from location to location, and ofcos, breeds. You should be able to get a 3 - 4 month old WAD goat for 6/8k. (Sometimes cheaper if you are going to buy directly from rural communities).
I was at Alaba rago on Wednesday last week and saw a Sahel goat for 12k.

Is this cheap?
Is it safe to buy sahel goats at the open market for breeding?

Bn a while I updated this thread.

It's been good news & bad one coming from my goat farm. Bad news first;

I lost my 1 acre plantain plantation to my goats. Walahi, they leveled the place, stripped the whole leaves off each stand and prevented new ones from shooting out. grin grin grin . I have decided to kuku leave the portion of lands for them. Na me no kukuma use my brain before. undecided

The good news is that I was able to sell off 15 goats just between last week and today. I had to depopulate them urgently. Their population exploded biko, leaving me with fights separation every now and them between bucks, broken horns etc.

Well done bro. Please may I bother you on the prices and age of the animals when you sold them. Also, did you sell in bulk or one after the other.

Most of the bulks went for price range between 19k to 16k (well over a year). The like bulks (over six months & castrated) sold for 10-12k depending on size. Two Does went for 12k (7months each)

Thank sir. This thread in addition to other things has inspired me to have my own goat farm. I intend to raise goats up to 50 pieces and sell off 20, raise the remaining 30 giant to make it it 50...rinse and repeat. My only concern is how to dispose off 10/20 goats at a go

Re: My Goat Farm Startup (my Diary) by jidestroud(m): 1:03pm On Nov 08, 2020
A section of my plantain farm is almost gone cry. It sure won't survive the harmattan & my goats. Therefore, I am selling off the goats and only leaving 2 females behind.
Meanwhile, I will be setting up a proper goat housing farm for them and probably the introduction of rams.

Sorry for your loss. I think the mistake was letting them roam free range. The plantation area should have been cordoned off with a high wooden fence. Goats are very stubborn animals.

I have been following this thread to learn from you and, I am planning to try starting goat farming sometime next year hopefully.

Thank you for creating this and other threads.

I wish you the best as you restart.
