Goat, anybody?


Private equity firms, desperate to restore their fortunes, are looking at goat farming in Australia as an investment opportunity. They say returns will be 8-12% from exporting goat meat, mainly to the USA. American goat merchants claim that goat meat has lower total fat, saturated fat, calories and cholesterol than "traditional" meats. I'm sure KL and Mopsa have views on this.

Ha! Goats are now mainstream! Mind you I loved the story of the virtual goats in a "stan" somewhere...
My goats are Swiss - and is an attempt by the Swiss Government to broaden the gene pool of Heidi's little friends.
I'm sure this is Swissophobe, but there is eveidence that the same problem exists in the human gene pool in Switzerland...

Cannot see a remote diner/gas station somewhere on Route 66 serving a crisp green salad au chevre chaud.

You could probably charge a premium for Swiss goat, KL.

C'est vrai, ED!
