Goat

Must Try

Sebastian Acosta
Sebastian grew up on a goat farm in rural Wisconsin. He learned a lot about different animals as a youngster. While he is no longer in charge of feeding the kids, he still helps maintain the family farm on the weekends. In his free time, he travels the world and finds every opportunity to escape in nature.

For the most part, we have all seen a goat, whether it’s in real life, a book or on the television. Here are some fun and cute facts about goats.

Goats Have Been Around A Long Time

Over 9,000 years ago, goats were one of the first animals to be domesticated by humans. They were first domesticated in Asia, where they were used for milk and cheese. 

Goats Like To Eat: 

Goats have a very unique appetite. They like to walk around and explore, which leads them to adventure out in the pasture and in your yard if they are free-range. They mostly like to eat grass, hay, and grain. 

Due to their sensitive mouths, some goats can be picky about what they choose to eat.

Goats Are Bred For Multiple Reasons

Goats have tons of purposes. Some are bred for meat, milk and livestock purposes. 

Goat milk can be used for many things—drinking, making cheese, lotions and even candles.

Some goats are used as companion animals for other lonely animals. 

Fun Facts 

  • There are more than 200 different breeds of goats.
  • Not only do dogs and goats have the same life span, but they can both recognize their names. Some goats will even come when called.
  • Goats are social animals. They like to have company in the farmyard.
  • As mountain animals, goats are very good climbers.

Goats have four stomachs. The food moves through each one as it processes. Watch out, though; goats are known to burp!
