I presume you didn't use any of them for meat?
I am partial to goats myself, but whatever works best for you. Goats have personality and can think things out a bit. Sheep are pretty dull in the brain. lol. But they are sweet and cute.

No, we didn't raise any meat goats or butcher any dairy goats. I've heard the meat goats are tasty.

If you want a lawn mower, sheep would work best. They are grazers and love grass.

Goats like bramble, and are more like deer. They take a nibble of this and a nibble of that. They will eat grass but get tired of it quickly and move on to yummier treats. lol.
