I slaughtered a goat Sunday and goat has been on the
menu all this week. Sunday we had the tenderloin cubed

added to the beans and broth. To make it somewhat

Due to the influx of Mexicans the price
of goats has doubled in the last few years.
If A&M would develop a goat that didn't smell like a goat, I would
probably have one in my yard.
My dad got a couple when I was young. They cleaned up the brier
