Friends of ours who own a small property just west of Albury have been keeping
goats/kids for the past year or two. Along with around about 15-20 goats, they
have a pair of Alpaca and two geese (don’t know if they’d act as a deterrent
although they are very rowdy). They are yet to have had any problems with
losing kids and while I was staying on their property two weeks ago, I twice
observed a pair of Wedgies circling the ridge above where the goats feed and,
at the time, were looking after young.
Also, a few years back, my grandparents owned about 1000 goats on their
property at Coonabarabran. They had no problems with eagles thanks to their
pair of Miramars, I think the same dog breed that have been used to deter foxes
from Little Penguin colonies.
