Goat Facts

Goats were one of the first animals to be tamed by humans.  They are a member of the cattle family and are believed to be descended from the wild goat, bezoar.  Most goats can be found in Asia and the Mid-East. Goats do not have teeth in their upper front jaw. Normally goats have two teats and cows have four.  Chevon is the French word for goat. These are animals that are slaughtered near or shortly after weaning.

 The goat is typically very sociable and is not happy as a loner. Within the herd there is a firm ranking order in which a lead doe and a lead buck share the duties of leader. Male goats, called Bucks, usually have a beard. Females are called does and both female and male young goats are called kids.
