Does anyone here keep goats?
I'm looking into keeping a couple of goats as pets in Basel-Landschaft, but I don't know which laws and rules there are around keeping livestock. Do we need to register somewhere?

Also, if anyone knows of any livestock supply shops or vets that will take goats in this area, I'd love to know of them! :)

Re: Does anyone here keep goats?
You face a few legal/permit issues I think.

Look into the right to become a farmer and keep/raise livestock. I am guessing there is some type of brevet required like some other livestock does.
Regulations at the local/cantonal level regarding the zoning of your place to keep livestock.

And permits/requirements to construct appropriate shelter/housing for said goats. (If you don't own your place, then going through the landlord is also required).

Yes, there are indeed rules for keeping livestock, including stringent requirements for space and housing.

But due to their busy filming and client entertainment schedule I still have to mow the lawn myself
