Meat Goats

Have you ever tried goat meat? If not, you should. The U.S. Department of Agriculture reports that goat meat is lower in fat and cholesterol than beef, chicken and pork, and that it has about the same amount of protein.

Goat meat falls into two categories:

CABRITO, also known as capretto, is the meat from milk-fed kids.

CHEVON is the flesh of older kids and mature goats.

A typical kid, 12 to 20 weeks old, yields 12 to 25 pounds of tasty meat, while a 100-pound goat, 12 to 18 months old, yields 40 to 50 pounds. Chevon from older goats can be gamy, so unless you prefer strongertasting meat for Caribbean dishes and curries, it’s best to slaughter goats while they’re young.
