Abstract

The niche market for goat meat is expanding with Iowa's immigrant population. Researchers consider how farmers can tap into that market.

Key Question

Is there a market for chevon (goat meat) in the Siouxland, and, if so, what does it look like?

Findings

Researchers found a small, but growing local market, fueled by immigration. The market also is segmented by specific preferences as to goat age, seasonal use, cut, and slaughter practices.
