Ever consider goats as backyard pets? You will after today's episode of Animal Instinct, as host Celia Kutcher chats with Dr. Tatiana Stanton, a member of the Cornell University Sheep and Goat Extension Program. In her spare time, Tatiana maintains a small, pasture-based herd of 40 meat goat does. She has worked as a goat/hair sheep consultant for various nonprofit organizations in the Caribbean and Central America training both new and experienced farmers in sheep and goat management. Within the United States, Tatiana has also worked as a herdsperson for commercial goat dairies and the International Dairy Goat Research Center at Prairie View, Texas. She gives an A-Z breakdown of what it means to keep a goat as a pet - from breeding to behavior. Today's program was brought to you by Brooklyn Cares Vet.

"Unlike us, goats get most of their carbohydrate energy from fibers. It's the most important feed for them." [10:00]

"If you choose a really rare breed of goat and you want to keep that breed pure you might have a lot of difficulty finding a male goat that's unrelated." [21:00]

"Any food safety organization in the world's job is not to figure out the minimum possible thing that's safe - their job is to provide bullet proof guidelines so nobody can mess up. THUS all of the rules are always overkill, 100% of the time." [10:00]
