Chickens are a valuable source of nutrition. The protein in eggs is the highest quality protein found in any food, as well as an excellent source of choline - an essential nutrient that contributes to fetal brain development and helps prevent birth defects. Beside the nutritional benefits, the raising and selling of chickens and eggs can provide an ecomonic benefit.
Goats are often a lifeline to entire communities offering milk, cheese, yogurt and even meat. They can also help increase the family income by providing offspring and extra dairy products for sale at the market.
A healthy dairy goat can give up to 16 cups of milk a day. Goat's milk is a very good source of calcium and the amino acid tryptophan. It is also a good source of protein, phosphorus, riboflavin (vitamin B2) and potassium.
