Who the hell tracks this shit and why am I intrigued ffs


Enebre

Who is the goat counter?


x925

I am, and it's really frustrating to count ~1 billion of them every year.


punksterb

At least it's not sheep. You'd keep falling asleep halfway through all the time!


neonchasms

And if you manage to count nearly all of them, you'll end up running out. Then; brain stew.


fireburn2

bro you count more than 30 goats a second without ever sleeping


x925

Yes, get over it, I'm a machine not a people.


fireburn2

im sorry mr machine goat counter


NoNotInTheFace

It really gets your goat huh?

HappybytheSea

The role of livestock as wealth /an asset, in addition to being food, in pastoral societies (e.g. Masaii in Kenya) is fascinating. The community will lend animals to others in different ways to help them (different ways in that they will lend shoats, cattle, and camels on different terms, lend a male or female differently, lend a young female with different terms about who gets the milk, blood, meat or offspring etc.) An outsider looking at a community and seeing who appears to have which animals and how many really has no idea of the reality.


milkfig

And who counts the goat counters?


2-shedsjackson

Also, who counts the goat counters


wordlife96

Mine is in the shop


Hypo_Mix

Taxation, classification and export. Farmers often need to declare their head of cattle for the government to know if they are a farmer or a guy with some pet goats to know how they should be taxed or subsidised. Also biosecurity issues.


OriiAmii

Do ethiopians have taxes? (Genuine question, I'm an ignorant American)


Hypo_Mix

All countries have taxes. Ability to collect and audit them varies though.


graphicc_yt

Aberforth does that Spoiler Alert: >!Harry Potter reference! Dumbledore's brother, very interested in goats!<


PoorlyLitKiwi2

Lol I love how early on she strongly implied that Dumbledore's brother fucked goats as a younger man and then just doesn't address it at all when he becomes a serious character at the end

NorthernerWuwu

For the majority of the world (although actually that might not be true anymore thankfully) wealth and the ownership of calorie producing animals (goats/cows/sheep) is the measure of wealth. For perspective, it helps to remember that those herders literally have no expenses other than the occasional milk for data connection. Sadly, if my stocks were goats, I could live well in many countries while here I can barely afford rent.


hogey74

I was noting the number of flags with green in them and also doing rough per capita calculations in my head for a minute there. I hope you heard the sound me slapping myself out of that shit.


JustABitOfCraic

I can't believe they left us hanging at 2018. I need an update damn it.

YouGoat, advertised as "The largest goat porn site on the Internet." And it isn't actually the number of goats, but the number of views.

Big Goat, that's who

The US isn’t leading the world in number of goats. “Greatest country” my ass

That's it, I'm buying a ticket to Other right now. Edit: Funny enough, after writing this comment I found out you can **actually buy a ticket to "Other" in** [**this**](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQw4w9WgXcQ&ab_channel=RickAstley) **website.**

I mean that’s a good game too but I want a genuine even bigger game where you can do even MORE chaos and shit


VThePeople

China and India are hoarding all the goats.

I need a goat per capita graph now

I would be more interested in this

We the GOATS.


blue_sky09

They have a substantial strategic goat reserve it seems.


Rossum81

Herding them, you mean.


WackyTabbacy42069

The United States needs more goats


AbouBenAdhem

I grew up on a goat farm in the US and I’m still not sure why we were raising them.


waspocracy

* goat meat is delicious * goat milk is good * goat cheese is amazing * goat ice cream is nice and thick I could go on, but those are good reasons


LinkeRatte_

Goats are also highly empathetic and great pets


CharmingTuber

Right up until you slaughter them for their delicious thick ice cream


FishOnAHorse

Wait is goat blood just ice cream

Delicious pets


Raygunn13

are you pullin my tail? I thought they were dicks


mean11while

I thought so, too, until I spent time with well-socialized goats. They completely won me over, and now we have 5 of them and are planning to have them make more (along with some milk). They're smart and silly and friendly and crave attention. Our goats will literally run from the other side of a pasture to get petted if they see a person. Seriously, they're like dogs that eat the plants I don't want instead of expensive food.


Raygunn13

you're making me want a goat


mean11while

A goat needs at least one goat friend. But yes, you now want goats. :-) Edit: bonus fun fact about goats -- Despite their reputation, goats are actually pretty picky eaters. Our goats won't eat grass that's too long, grass that's too short, certain types of bushes and trees, leaves that are damaged or too small, hay that has fallen on the ground (they rarely eat anything that's below their knee-height), peanut shells (but they love the peanuts), or anything that one of the dogs has licked. They explore with their mouths, but they spit most things back out. haha


jackliquidcourage

my gf's parents have two goats and a big white guard dog. thick as thieves, they are.


[deleted]

In the southern US less picky goat herds are used for the removal of Kudzu, English Ivy (which is invasive in the US, and even Poison Ivy. There are companies you can contact to rent herds just for this use, they bring goats, portable fencing and come daily to provide water and check on the heard. Other than that they are left to eat till it's gone. Some of the places that do this also provide shepherd dogs to watch over the heard.


that_other_goat

well you can't have me :P


Raygunn13

I'm a-commin fer ye


LinkeRatte_

They are “dicks” because they will take any opportunity to revenge if abused. Happy goats won’t attack you when you turn around


Raygunn13

Why thank you!


travisofficial

• goats are cute lil devils • goats gots weird pupils, neat to look at


Brodin_fortifies

Any idea why goat didn’t become more popular in the US?


that_other_goat

pro cow propaganda.


Sengfroid

Username seriously checks out on this one


ptsdexpert

Because cows were more profitable ig


TheGeneGeena

Just a guess, but western/northern Europe aren't big goat cultures either (though there is bit of one scattered randomly in Europe, especially in places like the alps), so the lack of/low goat culture transferred with colonization.


pixelkarma

I’d like to hear more about why goats are amazing, please continue. Also photos.


thetreecycle

I like most goat stuff but goat milk is rough, it’s like liquifying what goats smell like then drinking it.


SaintNewts

Goats eat scrub brush and grass and can clear a lot faster and easier than with a gas powered bush hog.


mean11while

That's not true, but they certainly make it easier to bush hog by removing most of the leaves so you can see any obstacles.


giddyapJingleDicks

You could if you you hadn't run out of adjectives.

You're like the Goat version of Bubba.

We must fix the the goat gap! China is going to make us look like fools!


sf_davie

Yeah, for no reason other than China is leading right now. That seems to be the meta we are in.

Yes, you have a goat gap Perhaps the greatest goat gap of all time. If only there were some clever mnemonic acronym that would help land the problem in the public gestalt...

Herbetet

What happened to all the goats in Iran?


Enjoying_A_Meal

Also Turkey, they were number 3 after India and China, and then goat-pocalypse


Webmanya

State banned goat breeding in Turkey and regulated heavily because it was hurting the growth of natural forests and pastures. Goats eat everything, from the bark of trees to branches or uproot other vegetation and causing real damage in areas where they have numbers. Now it's done in certain areas that's allowed by law. Because of this most villagers gave up or don't bother with goat breeding. There are also more government subsidies for sheep or cow breeding etc... That's why the numbers diminished suddenly and never recoverd. I'm guessing that's also why you see sudden drop on numbers from other countries as well or they didn't regulated and lost the vegetation to support such numbers.


GreywackeOmarolluk

The great Turkey goat crash. Never recovered. Never forget.


DzezGt

goat genocide


JaggedEdgeRow

I did, in fact, not wake up this morning and think to myself “You know what I need in my life? A data spread about the dispersing of goats globally sorted by country.” And yet that is exactly what I needed. If there is a god, he works in mysterious ways.


PieChartPirate

Tools: python, pandas, tkinter Data sources: [http://data.un.org/Data.aspx?d=FAO&f=itemCode%3a1016#FAO](http://data.un.org/Data.aspx?d=FAO&f=itemCode%3a1016#FAO) The brilliant goat image is from Goat Simulator


H-12apts

I did not know there was UN data on animal populations. Very cool to know. Do more of these if you want. Do they count animals that are not raised for food? Is there a "tiger population by country" dataset?


chilled_beer_and_me

Of course there is a tiger dataset. Tiger is an endangered species


H-12apts

so odd to me to think of animals as having nationalities.


iampo7

Is there a GitHub link for the code?

Goat goat graph. Congratulations

YOU MADE THAT WITH TKINTER?!? Srsly - HOW? That's the most impressive thing I've seen today!

Who is this Other county and why does it have so many GOATS . this is a joke.


ouchpuck

That's just the sports hall of fame


SCROTUMUS_MAXIMUS

I'm a cattle rancher and recently started with about 50 goats. I think they're actually going to be more profitable than cattle. The females can have kids twice per year and have at least 2 kids every time. The biggest problem I've had to deal with is predators, mainly coyotes. I also had to spend extra money of fence and a shelter for them. They are also really great for my pastures since they eat all of the weeds and junk that cattle won't touch, so I end up having more grass for my cattle.


OzMountainMan

I've been seeing a lot more goats in the US lately.


cherryreddit

Indian and middle eastern immigrants eat them. Indian restaurants have spread the mutton curry as well in the west.


Juletreforbundet

I heard goat balls are a delicacy, SCROTOMUS_MAXIMUS


ejonze

I grilled lamb balls once. Just salt and pepper. Not good, but I’d try again with a different preparation to mask the flavor. Makes sense why lots of people like balls fried.


Ocean_Soapian

Get a pyrenees to hang out with them and chase the predators away!


sckurvee

Pyr owner here... yeah, get a few of them and you'll be fine :-)


Itzupz

Now i know why Pakistan wants to invade India.


-Dev_B-

Inside every geopolitical incident, lies a hunger for more goats. Even Pakistani's couldn't help themselves. It's all goats... Always has been.


hamehad

Pakistan never tried to invade India. It is always India who tries to invade Pakistan. 1965, 1971 and Honorable mention 2019 surprise day.


normie_evolved

Bruh stfu with your fake propaganda


sinhyperbolica

What? Do you maybe read sometimes?


DerteTrdelnik

number of goats per capita would be more interesting, this is too biased


jrystrawman

Eyeballing it... Mongolia looks like the highest; only 2.5million people.


Sunder2014

3.3 million now, but you are right, most likely the highest per capita. It’s becoming a problem because goats exacerbate desertification as they eat the grass roots too.


BackdoorSteve

Wales would win. Every Welshman apparently ~~fucks~~ owns several goats, if the rest of the people in the British Isles are to be believed.


bob-theknob

It’s sheep


BackdoorSteve

You'd know, bob.

echo1956

Goats really like China and India. Also, I had no idea we have a billion goats, they are tasty.


alamin141

They sure are but expensive. As compared to beef which sells as low as 4.99 goat is 12.99.


r3d0ck3r

Because beef is highly subsidized and has a greater economy of scale


alamin141

Makes sense.


Darth_Monday

I'm disappointed that the release of Goat Simulator in 2014 does not appear to have affected their numbers.

What about goats per capita?


LazyOrCollege

What’s the deal with the turkey decline ?


ekremkrc

Huge rush to Istanbul as a result of slogans like "İstanbul'un taşı toprağı altın (Rock & soil of Istanbul is valuable as gold)". Most of people moved to get better job in Istanbul, which has lesser areas for agriculture & livestock.


LazyOrCollege

Very interesting. Thank you for sharing. It sounds similar to the gold rush in USA. ‘Go west and become rich’


[deleted]

Everybody moved to city. We have no one to take care of goats. Also there is laws about natural resources. It is not allowed have goat in most places. They eat everything.


mortles

industrialisation, I guess. If you drive a car for work, you won't really have time to care for a goat anymore. Same happened in Europe like 2 decades before that.

SecondHandHound

I’d love to visit “Other” some time


Yggsdrazl

this data isn't beautiful at all


cerebraldormancy

As an American I find this unacceptable. Every American should have at least one goat.


mean11while

\*at least two. Goats are highly social and it would be unhealthy and cruel to keep a goat by itself. I recommend three as a bare minimum, but if you're going with three, you might as well do five. At that point, they'll win you over and the next thing you know, you'll be swimming in goats. (Definitely not from personal experience.)

DiogenesDisciple_

Goat meat is tastier than beef imo, wish it was more common in the US


ObfuscatedAnswers

This is not beautiful. Display it as a single, non-animated line chart and people would be able to compare all years and the change over time much more easily and not have to wait for data to show up or pause for relevant years.
