How to Raise Goats by Carol A. Amundson
Book DescriptionAs pets or livestock, goats are increasingly popular animals on farms large and small. Easier and cheaper to keep than many larger animals, they will keep a pony company, pull a cart, produce the perfect milk for artisan cheeses, and meat for some of the most up-and-coming ethnic cuisines. For anyone thinking of acquiring a goat or starting a herd this is an essential book.Written by an authority on goat breeding and behaviour, this approachable guide covers every component of raising goats for fun and profit, meat and milk. Beginning with the basics of history, behaviour, breeds and types, Amundson answers all of a prospective owner's questions about getting a goat, form land requirements to choosing and assessing particular animals or breeds. In a clear, engaging way she details the housing, feeding, breeding, milking, training, showing, transport and marketing of goats of all kinds, plus the do's and don'ts of keeping them healthy from kid to old age. Concise, complete and easy-to-use, this is a reference that no goat owner should be without.
