Goat Barns That Work

Goat Barns that work provide good protection from wind, rain and snow. Yes, I know, there is a big dog in one of the stalls. All of my goat feeders are on the outside to avoid waste.

Is My Goat Sick ?

You gotta listen to your goat!

Goats make different sounds

1. Bleating persistently
  • May be hungry
  • May be thirsty
2. Occasional bleating, twitching of the tail
  • May be in "heat"
3. A sick goat cries, often making moans. Stressed calls are also common. 
  • May be sick

 
If you believe your goat is sick, you may want to take the goats temperature. A goat's normal temperature is around 102°–103° Fahrenheit, depending on the individual goat.
