Out in the far reaches of Herald toward Rancho Seco is a ranch where about 2,000 goats are raised for people who enjoy eating them.

Gary Silva Jr. has about 500 acres and rents another 1,840 acres from prominent Sacramento developer Angelo Tsakopoulos to raise his goats. He also has 400 head of beef cattle that he raises with the goats, but he finds that goats are cheaper to raise than cows.
