Methodology to calculate the age of a goat

Goats can easily reach the age of 15 years or more, but the longevity of animals is often artificially reduced by humans for breeding purposes. Practically, there is no mathematical formula (well at least, not a simple one) because the age of a goat does not follow a linear curve compared with the human age.

So it's rather from observations of the ages of goats that veterinarians have established a correlation table (age chart) to see an equivalence in human age:

Real goat age 1 2 3 4 5 6 7 8 9 10 11 12 13 14
Human age 18 24 30 36 42 48 54 60 66 72 78 84 90 96

Life expectancy of the goat: a goat lives usually for about 15 years to 18 years.

Animals rights

Animal abuse is unbearable, and it is important to give rights to animals. For more than three decades, the Animal Legal Defense Fund (ALDF) has been fighting to protect the lives and advance the interests of animals through the legal system, pushing government agencies to do their jobs to protect animals and shining a national spotlight on issues like factory farming and dissection in schools.
