Meat Goats : Their History, Management and Diseases

MEAT GOATS: Their History, Management and Diseases has been written especially for North Americans whose interest in raising goats for their healthful and delicious meat (chevon) has burgeoned in the past decade. Prior to this time, only a relatively small number of farmers and ranchers in this part of the world raised goats - mostly Angoras in Texas (for mohair) or milk goats (for their escpecially digestible milk products) - although 'Spanish' or 'brush' goats have long been a presence in the South (particularly in Texas).
Since goats are not indigenous to this continent, the authors of this book have discussed the pros and cons of recent imports (such as the Boer and Kiko) as well as the more established 'Spanish' goat. [9 breeds in all have been considered.] The authors have not only set down their opinions and experiences but have cited those of recognized goat experts worldwide.
