The ruminant goat is a member of the even-toed ungulates family Bovidae and is closely related to the sheep. Goats are one of the oldest domesticated species, and have been used for their milk, meat, hair, and skins over much of the world. Because of its long history of domestication, there are many different breeds which vary in size and weight, muscle More...
