How to Make a Quality Goat Cage

A good cage system will determine the success of the goat business.




This is because the cage system will assist in goat rearing management such as facilitating feeding and drinking, mating, handling births, handling sick goats, and others.


For example, when the farmer is going to give feed, it will be difficult if the feeder is too high because the farmer has to lift the feed first.


On the other hand, farmers will easily provide feed if the height of the feeder is in accordance with the reach of the breeder.


A good quality cage will also be a comfortable place for goats to live, grow, and breed. Goats can be protected from direct wind and protected from the heat of the sun and rain.


 Goats can also get healthy and refreshing air and can live in peace because they are protected from germs, fleas, flies, and mosquitoes.


With a good cage, goats get maximum care so that they can produce optimally as well. A good cage will also facilitate the use of urine and goat manure to be used as compost so that it can increase the economic value of goat farming.


In a good stable situation, the stable staff will feel comfortable keeping the goats and will be eager to work. Therefore, a good cage size can be judged automatically when we are in the middle of the cage.


Poor housing will be the cause of the failure of the goat business. There are often cases of cempe being trampled to death, trapped between the floor of the cage, or freezing to death. This is because farmers do not provide separate cages for each period of goat life and pay less attention to local wind conditions.


Poor management of the cage will also make the distribution of feed uneven so that the uniformity of goat growth will also be low.


Some fatal events that are actually unlikely to happen are goats dying from maggots in rotting wounds and cases of dead goats hanging in the cage. These two things don't really need to happen if the cage construction is good.


The size of the cage must also be in accordance with the physiological phase, type of goat, and the purpose of rearing. The size of the cage for fattening is different from the size of the cage for breeding.
