A fellow with about 25-30 goats down the road from us got rid of his Nubians because he couldn't keep them alive here he said. He moved up here from hotter, and much dryer West Texas. He now has the Kiko's which seems to be the meat goat of choice around here. I'm not raising goats to make money or to sell.
