Nepal/USA Goat Project
1 hour ago
I am headed back to Nepal on January 24, 2018 to continue with my project. I will be conducting training sessions with the goat farmers in many of the rural mountainside villages as well as taking items to donate to improve herd health and increase income levels for these hard working individuals! Enjoy "our" next trip!
Daniel how about a donation of semen... I will have to go thru the semen tank to make sure they are still good. It's been years since dad AI'd but if it still good. I would love for it to be used. You judged many shows we used to go too... It wld be Toggenburg semen... I'll let you know...
Hello Dan, This is Mila. Ken and Barb shared your site. Great to see the work you are doing. Lost you for a while! So glad to see the update. See you are returning in January. What is your deadline for receiving a donation for this trip? Want to make a contribution from Grandchildren earning some money. Take care my friend. Mila
Daniel, wouldn't it be even more favorable for the Nepalese mountain communities if they were able to get a yak instead of a goat? I have been to Nepal several times and know that a yak has greater economic value, as it gives all that a goat does and in addition it is able to carry loads and give wool. I addition, yaks are used to the harsh conditions in high altitude. Have you researched how much it would be for one yak instead of a goat? How do you determine who gets a goat? How do you verify that the animal went to the deserving individual and not a "dealer," who will try to sell the animal instead of it being given to a needy family, or give it to his/her favorite person?
