Five baby goats were born at the Agricultural Land Lab overnight, making them the first newborn goats at the facility!

The babies – three males and two females – and both mothers are doing well and receiving lots of attention from students, a school spokesperson said.

The goats were named Hunter, Moonlight, King, Pearl and Pumpkin. The names were selected by the students.
