The Going into Goats guide

MLA's Going into Goats program was developed in 2006 with the launch of the Going into Goats: Profitable producers' best practice guide (GiG guide) and continues today as a delivery platform for outputs from research and development (R&D) activities for farmed and rangeland goat production systems.

Central to the program is the GiG guide, an information package designed to explain the essential processes for a successful goat production system. This applies to goat production as a standalone enterprise or as an enterprise that complements other production systems.

The GiG guide draws on the knowledge, skills and experience of more than 40 goat producers from across Australia. It provides tools and information to help goat producers increase productivity while minimising risk.

The GiG Guide has 11 modules that address different aspects of the goat production system. Producers can download the individual modules below for free or order a hard copy of the manual.
