Farmers must keep kids safe. They often keep kids in barns or fenced areas. Fences keep goats in and keep predators out. Barns protect them from wind and rain.

Goats come in many shapes and sizes. Each kind of goat is raised for different uses. For example, kiko goats can weigh up to 300 pounds (130 kg). They are raised for meat. Angora goats have long, soft fur. People buy the fur to make clothing.
