Can You Have Just One Goat?

Goats can be kept for various purposes. They can be kept for pets, dairy farming, meat, and even pack animals for hiking.

Here are the things to keep a single goat happy


Due to their vulnerability, goats need protection from other domestic animals like dogs. This can be done by putting up dog-proof fences protecting the goat and making it feel safe.


In nature, goats would graze all day long. On a farm, we tend to reduce feeding down to once or twice a day. For a single goat, you want to try to duplicate a more longer feed schedule.


Provide your goat with a very good shelter and bedding. Due to the bossy nature of a goat, provision of shelter and a comfortable place to sleep will make it a happy goat. The goat will require shelter from rainfall, wind and extreme sunshine.
