Angora goats
[Return to Topics]

Well, we tried the horse breeding business, and found it was a whole lot of labor, and expense, and there are very few people that want to give you the price you are asking when it comes to selling time. SOOOO, in a continuing effort to find a way to make this ole farm pay, I am looking into the niche market of angora goats. My question is....do they cause the same type of allergic reaction in people as say, sheep do? I tend to be sneezy around sheep, and was just curious as to angoras causing the same reaction.
Any one have any idea on this type of thing??

Like you I tried the horse businees and found like wiht most things I got in when the market was high and then the bottom dropped. The same with Llama's, got goats too but but unless you have a market for the angora hair goats aint bringin a plug nickel anymore either. I have heard that it meat goats sell wells as an ethnic meat source if you have the market in your area you might look into that market. Another major problem with goats is keeping the durn things in fence. They can get out almost anyplace including walking through electric high tensile
