I don't know if it is a good idea to teach your goats to like your garden crops...

Watch what you let them eat when you start milking , oak leaves give milk a definite whang , so does poison ivy .I will bet lots of people up north where you are will chip in with what not to let them eat .

I was told by a local old-timer that broccoli leaves eat much like collards! Haven't tried them myself yet, but it's good to know---just in case.
