Goats cheese fact of the day
Goats are fascinating creatures that certainly gain more of a look-in at an animal nursery than what a cow might from kids. Goats were first farmed more than 9,000 years ago and have been central to many cultures for meat and milk. Although goats are often thought to eat anything, they are in fact very picky eaters due to their very sensitive lips. They are always searching for clean, tasty food and will often turn their nose up at hay that has been walked on or lying around for a day or two. You can’t blame them really.
