This series of interviews has been particularly entertaining for me because it featured goats (and a sheep), which I have no personal experience with, so I loved to read about them. I wonder if goats are a better option for those who do not have bovine experience, I'm not sure if they are easier to handle or not, I would be interested in your thoughts on the matter. I know there's lots of good reasons to get a cow, especially if you use a lot of milk, but they can be very difficult to control if you're not set up for cattle and don't know how to handle them they can be dangerous and just more expensive to look after.
If you would like to revisit and catch up on any of the interviews, here they all are, make sure you leave a comment for the writers.
What do you think? Did we inspire you to get started with dairy? Is there more you need to know? Did you enjoy the series?
