ABSTRACT
Goat, a hardy animal closely related to the sheep. Wild goats are often hunted as game; domestic goats are raised for milk, meat, hides, and hair. The goat is often called the �poor man's cow� because it thrives where other livestock cannot. Goats were probably domesticated in Persia about 3000 B.C.
