Hello friends,

I'm going to tell you a little story of what a typical day looks like in my life on the farm, but first lets start with a small intro into who I am and just where I come from.

Ok, so name is Eric Rovegno, I'm a native New Yorker, not even in the rural areas of NY, but the actual suburbs. I am a second generation American at least on the side of my father, my mother's side you could consider me a native, as I have Comanche blood in me.

Ok so what does this have to do with my life now, well it is just a little insight into the fact that I am a city boy turned country boy. Lol.. Interesting right!! At least I think so.

I grab my headphones and head out the door listening to music, just loud enough to keep my mind singing. The door opens, the fresh scent of a brand new day fills the air around me, and just gets my heart rate going. Lean over lift the door on the kittens pen to let them out for the day, then move on to turning on my hose for watering everyone. Head out to the chickens coop, fill their feeders, grab their watering

OK, so you bought a goat, preferably two as they are herd animals and will do much better with a companion. Now what should I do before I actually bring them home. The best advice I can give on top of all this is to purchase A guide to Raising Dairy Goats, this book is packed with information and advice on illnesses, disease, feed, housing, breeds, and so much more. Pick it up before you get your goat home, it will save you time, and money, and most of all from being stressed.

Step One: You have to build a shelter for them to stay warm in cold weather, dry in wet, and cool in hot. The shelter can be made simply of some free pallets, some plywood, 2X4's and some paint. The dimensions can be 4x4x4, or as big as you care to go. the size men...
