The meat goat budget is designed to reflect the economic costs and returns of a 50 doe, spring kidding herd (March and April) with kids marketed between 50 to 60 pounds in July/August. This management system takes advantage of spring forage production and the natural breeding season. However, this management system has high price risk during summer marketing.
