Goatober is almost over, but don’t be sad! You can still get your last goat fix on this week’s Farm Report. Host Erin Fairbanks talks with farmer Mark Guanzini and his wife Luce who run Highwood Farm up in Spencer, NY. Highwood Farm is also a participating goat farm in Heritage Foods USA‘s No Goat Left Behind initiative. They talk about the daily life of raising a herd Boer meat goats from the day they are born until they go to market. From how they allow the goats to self-wean, which they believe decreases the stress of the animals being separated from their mother, to why they keep some dairy genetics in their herd the episode is packed with goat info. This episode is sponsored by the No Goat Left Behind initiative.
