Raising Milk Goats Successfully


Reviewer: Beth Hartford (see more about me) from Jackson, California United States
We have been around goats for decades, but have only recently in the past year gone the next step and begun to own Nubian goats for milk, cheese and brush removal purposes. And this is a great book if you are just getting started because it covered everything one needs to know before and after getting a goat or goats.

From housing, dairy goat rations, nutritional needs, goat management, choosing dams and sires (females and males), breeding and kidding (birthing), kid care, goat milk, udder care, health care, trouble shooting, and the overall benefits of keeping goats. And a section for those who want to have goats as a business i.e. milk, cheese, meat. And there is a good section on where to buy goats and supplies.

We live in the Sierras where we are encouraged to own goats for fire protection, since they are great at keeping brush clearer in high fire areas. And they are such wonderful animals to own and easily become members of the family.
