Hey MICHAEL, I don't know much about goats and their toughness but I've seen a pic posted by you and to me it seems that goats may be around the same size as a deer. So what I'm thinking is maybe a .223 and up. 243, 270, 30-06 and such. I may be wrong but that's my opinion.

Default shooting goats

a good gun for shooting goats on your farms would be a 223 or a 223 wssm if you want a smaller call get a 17 or a 204 ruger

If you're shooting them close in the head then something small will work fine. 222,223,22-250,243 ect ect
