Minnesota farm family adds value with goats

Goats have added value to a farm in southeast Minnesota.

Jordan and Rochelle Meyer have 150 dairy cows, raise grass-fed beef and pasture pork and poultry near Caledonia. 

Jordan says a few years ago they brought goats into the mix to clear a wooded area that had been logged.

“Once they took the tree canopy out, the brush just started erupting, which was expected. But since that happened, we figured we’d capitalize on that opportunity and utilize those acres with goats and generate some more revenue that way.”

They now graze 400 goats that they sell for meat and genetics and also lease out to other grazers.
