I am looking to rear goats on a five acre peace of land near gilgil. Anyone who has done this before? or has details/info on where to buy goats, which breeds, maximum number I can keep on the piece of land, prerequisites, profit margins, markets etc etc....or even better refer me somewhere? In short, I am asking if it's viable..

Be reading seeds of gold in DN Saturdays it has valuable information regarding farming.
Thanks, I was following seeds of gold and somehow lost track because there was a lot of info that I couldn't process. The way I see it I have to visit a farm somewhere and get to see how things get done before starting up.

Since that is a dry area get the dorpers and the senges as they will adapt well.

past Kisamese past Ole polos used to get them on the cheap whenever there was a big event or bash, they get cheaper as schools near their re-opening dates.

I have the same dream of starting such one day and i would advise you to go on youtube and search for goat rearing. There is endless info. starting from Mkulima young,kilimo Biashara to goat rearing in India,Uganda,South Africa etc. and its all detailed info - documentaries.

Kwa wakati huu naonelea nifuge mbuzi wa nyama. I think dairy goats will require more labour and more resources. Have you reared these ones before?
I'd say have it fenced, build a mabati house and a shed from for the goats, sub-divide it into half-acre strips or so. Have them grazed on each strip for a few days then the next.

I thought you were looking to rear dairy goats I could have shared some info n true they require close supervision n resources but they are a good money minting venture. Ukitaka za nyama changanya "ndoba" n goats. Usiweke sheep kienyeji cos hazinunuliwangi poa sana.
