Goat production is no longer a niche industry in Australia. Once mainly the domain of fibre producers, today goats are increasingly managed and harvested for their meat.
Elders can assist producers with all aspects of goat production, from animal selection and reproduction to herd health, nutrition and marketing. We’ll work with you to maximise your herd’s potential, grow your business and achieve your goals.
