      While goats are already established as a good source of meat (chevon) and milk, sheep are relatively new requiring further attention in terms of promotion.
    • 2006, Mary Turner Stille, The Goat Care Handbook, 2nd Edition, unnumbered page,
      Chevon is the meat from the goat. Chevon is sold in finer restaurants as a delicacy for huge prices. It's been reported that chevon steaks can cost over $45 on the East Coast, yet many people refuse to taste is[sic] when it is served from our kitchen.
    • 2011, Kenneth V. Oster, The Complete Guide to Preserving Meat, Fish, and Game[1], page 181:
      If you cook chevon using too high of a heat setting, the meat will lose its moisture and become tough.
