Irish Goat Meat
It's only the females who give goat milk; in commercial goat herds, the males are usually killed at birth because they are surplus to requirement.
Two years ago, Westmeath farmer Claudia Marl decided to test the market for goat meat: she kept the males and sold the meat to a Dublin butcher.
In tonight's Ear to the Ground, Ella meets Claudia to hear her story. According to Teagasc, the potential for goat meat for export is there. #farm #farming #goat #goats #ireland #irish #rte #teagasc
