Great facts and descriptive tips, loved all the natural suggestions, property tips, care and even yummy recipes to make with goats milk
This book is a great source of information about natural goat raising, and can be read by those who are completely new to raising goats, or by those who already have goats, but want to take a more natural approach.
I do not yet have goats, but thoroughly enjoyed reading this book, as it gave me a very informative insight into what things to expect when raising them. The author addresses common goat keeping issues and offers plenty of advice and natural solutions to simple health problems, which has come from her own experience with natural goat keeping.
I found all of it very useful and easy to read, from learning about herd dynamics, right down to what to look for when purchasing goats. I know this will be a book that I will refer to often.
I look forward to learning milking and trying out the home made cheese recipes!
Great book for beginners! Although she is talking mostly about milk goats, you could use it for any goat! She doesnt talk about all of the type of goat, but the basics in detail. She talks about
Bringing your goats home
Cheesemaking and recipies
And much much more!
She talks about how to think when building a paddock. She said that goats dont like to eat food off the ground, Yup! She even covered something that small! So i definitely recommend it!
I love this book, and highly recommend it! It's great comprehensive information, written in a very down to earth, practical style, organized in a way that makes sense. I'm new to goat stewardship, and this book has been a huge help, to me, as well as helping to calm many of my husband's fears, too.
