Should be in every goat herder?ÇÖs library. It contains a lot of great information that I have found useful and accurate over the years. We recommend this book to new goat owners when we sell any of our stock. Would love to see them do a updated version though.
Well worth the money at twice the price! If you plan on getting even just a couple goats to milk for personal use buy this book first. This book will help you decide which breed is best for you and show you what to look for. Great for the seasoned owner too!
"Very Informative Book"
This is the first book I bought on dairy goats, and I wish I had bought it sooner. If you are interested in getting into Dairy goats, or already have them and want more knowledge, this is a great source. It is easy to read and understand. It has pictures so you can actualy see what they are writing about. This book is just a good general source of knowledge for Dairy goats, and I highly recommend it to anyone! I know it's certainly been helpful to me.
