Goat prices range from as little as $50 and go up depending on breeding. Bottle fed babies are also a great option to start with a smaller animal that you or your children can bond with and learn about before getting bigger. They are great with children and are a gentle animal if treated properly. Always keep in mind goats are a herd animal and will do better if in a pair rather than on there own as they may tend to wander to find a herd if  left totally on there own.
