Domestic Goat

Goats, like cattle, have a four-chambered stomach used to digest the plant material that they eat through bacterial fermentation. Adult male goats are usually called bucks while young male goats are called billy goats. A female goat is called a nanny goat or a doe. The domestic goat's weight varies from 55 to 200 pounds depending on variety.
