We went on a field trip this morning with my English adult class. Roger organized for us to visit a large goat and sheep farm next to where he lives in Copey. The owner of the farm produces 1,000 litres of goat's milk every week with 70 or so goats. He has to milk them twice a day and he only has two other workers to help him out. There are some machines, but it's still pretty labour intensive. He sells the male goats for meat. There's always something new to learn around here!
It was all very interesting (I understood almost everything the farmer said in Spanish).
