about

Whether you want to raise a dairy barn full of milkers, meat goats for market, a herd of Angoras for mohair fiber, or a few Pygmies as pets, this is the book for you.

Goats are more popular than ever. The expert, hands-on advice in this new edition of Voyageur Press's best-selling goat manual makes it easy to get started. Providing information on the latest developments in husbandry, housing, and nutrition, veteran goat farmer Carol Amundson also describes the breeds popular in the United States and Canada and explains all the helpful dos and don’ts. You’ll find information about traveling with goats, marketing, treating illness, and more, including a glossary of caprine terms, tables and charts for easy reference, and a list of breed associations. Illustrated in full color and licensed by the Future Farmers of America, this guidebook is an indispensable resource for those who want to raise their very own goats.
 
Easy-to-follow tips help you to:
  • Choose the right breed for your needs
  • Evaluate and purchase goats
  • House and feed your herd
  • Keep your herd healthy
  • Breed goats and birth kids
  • Market goats and their products
Reviewed and approved by Dr. Clint Rusk (Purdue University Associate Professor in the Youth Development and Agriculture Education Department), this book will give you the tools you need to succeed in this challenging but rewarding venture.
