dont let the fact that you have no experience stop you at all. we all have to begin at the beginning.
goats are a pretty good choice for an initial livestock raising experience.

keeping them contained is a major challenge.
if you cannot do it- your neighbors will hate you and it will cause a lot of problems.

Thanks for all the advice. Today I picked up 5 goats, 2 Nubian males and 1 Khmer mom with 2 kids( Nubian mix). I start soon to built my barn 20x10 metre, and I know goats are difficult to keep at the place. But I think as they like the place inside, they don't wanna go break the fences. And I think outside the same. Enough feed, clean space, dry land en things where they can climb and sleep on higher level.

And if somebody knowsa farmer that sell Nubian,saanen or Boer goats , please contact me.
Not easy to find, and import also not easy.
