Goat is not a profitable animal to raise in America. The average goat butchers out to only a few pounds of meat. After the costs of growing the animal and then butchering and processing the small amount of meat -- it is simply not practical. Middle Eastern and other cultures that are used to raising small animals, like goats, find that it is practical to raise them as a meat source. It is kind of like raising dogs as a meat source except dogs require more costly feed than goats do.
