SEp 063; Getting Started in Dairy Goats with Kate from The Modern Settler

 

Today we chat with Kate St. Cyr with The Modern Day Settler about getting started with Dairy Goats.  Kate is a blogger and You Tuber as well as a writer for Countryside and Grit Magazine who shares her homesteading adventure of raising livestock and restoring her beautiful 1790’s New England colonial farm.  

In this episode we cover topics such as dairy goat breeds, importance of fencing, setup, supplies, and keeping an emergency livestock kit.
