Raising Goats for Meat and Milk

Raising Goats for Meat and Milk

Buy at Amazon (Same book as below)

I have raised my own goats for the last couple years.  I love watching young goats bounce around and jump on things (I actually got in a lot of trouble for giving my goats an “unused” exercise ball).

What I love more than watching goats is drinking goat milk.  I haven’t got around to the meat part of raising goats for meat and milk, but I have gotten my use out of the milk part.

Goat milk is much better for you than cattle milk, as a matter of fact, goat milk is closer to human milk and can be given to infants under circumstances where cow milk will make them sick.

From the Amazon description:

Heifer International is pleased to present a new, revised edition of Raising Goats for Milk and Meat. This introductory handbook provides an experience-based training model on the basic care and management of dairy and meat goats. The new edition includes training guidelines, a learning guide for each chapter, an updated health section and additional information on marketing, meat goats and care of the land. Although this book will be a useful reference for the individual goat farmer, it is primarily designed as a tool for a facilitator to use when training a group of farmers interested in starting or improving goat production.
