If a female goat of a good milking strain be kept, this is a useful animal as well as a pet. They are very hardy, and will thrive on almost anything of a vegetable nature—trimmings of hedges, prunings, weeds and potato tops. In winter they should be given a little hay and oats, together with such kitchen scraps as pieces of bread, fruit and vegetable parings, and anything else of a vegetable nature which the cook can spare.

If taken young and trained as kids, on the bottle, goats become as affectionate and tractable as dogs.
