Give goats a go
The Australian goatmeat industry in 2018 was worth over $182M, with approximately 1.6 million head slaughtered. The majority of product is exported, as goatmeat harbours no religious restrictions and is a popular component of many diets, particularly in parts of Asia and the Middle East, North Africa (MENA) as well as Hispanic populations across the United States of America.
