Meat Goat Breeding

A meat goat breeding project is a long term project. The 4-H member begins with a doe kid and cares for her through breeding age and on to kidding. Meat goat projects provide youth with opportunities to expand their knowledge about the industry, production and more importantly, develop life skills to be positive contributors to society.
