When I first learned about rotational grazing, I knew right away that’s how I wanted to raise goats.
But no one was really doing it, at least in my region. So I dove in and learned how to raise goats on pasture using rotational grazing and regenerative practices.
I should say I’m still working on figuring it out, but I’ve come along way since those dreams 10 years ago.
Over time I’ve been growing a herd with the goal of resiliency, and ability to thrive on forage alone – pasture in the summer and hay in the winter. It’s been a long game. I’ve been doing a lot of self study by Learning from my friends and peers who are raising beef or sheep and adapting practices for meat goats, reading, podcasts, attending conferences, and of course learning by doing.
It’s been a long haul and not an easy journey, but I wouldn’t want it any other way.
On a few weeks I’ll be offering an online workshops on Raising Meat Goats with Rotational Grazing practices to share more on how to get started or improve upon your own work with raising goats on pasture.
