Dairy Goats

Basel and Hans are two of the coolest goats in the world, but they are only two of the many different breeds of Dairy Goats. Goats are ruminants and like to eat, but contrary to common belief goats will not eat tin cans!

Cashmere Goats

Cashmere is not a breed of goat. Rather, cashmere is a type of fiber.
