Goat meat on the up
Dairy farmers of the future could be raising male kid goats (billies) for the meat market as a supplementary source of income, according to James Whetlor, co-proprietor of specialist wholesaler Cabrito Goat Meat.
The market for kid-goat meat is on the rise, with a steady but constant increase in demand that is thanks to Mr Whetlor’s innovative trickle-down marketing, who now supplies billies to more than 50 restaurants.
“There is a huge, untapped market out there, but first we need to ensure that people can try the meat quite cheaply,” says the former London chef.
The International Goat Association promotes goat research and development for the benefit of humankind, to alleviate poverty, to promote prosperity and to improve the quality of life.
