Goats poop 7-10 times a day. Unlike llamas and horses, which typically go to certain places for the deed, goats poop everywhere. Goat dropping does not attract flies or breed maggots and doesn’t really smell! Goat dropping make a perfect starter compost as it can be used in nearly any type of garden without having to wait for a “breaking down” compost period. Fruit trees, flowering plants, herbs, vegetables, and ornamental landscaping plants, all of these will benefit from the nutrition provided by goat poop.
Argan oil that is widely used in countries for healthy hair is produced from Goat excreta. In Morocco, the excrement of goats that feed on the fruit of Argan tree is collected. The leftover seeds from the goat droppings are picked and pressed to produce Argan oil. Argan oil is a well-known treatment for hair loss, smooth, and shiny locks. However, on the downside, the unchecked feeding of goats on Argan trees to increase production of the oil is leading to increased damage to the trees.
