I must say for the price it is definitely more then worth it. I read it all the way through when I first bought my goats and still turn to it today for quick information on how to handle the common situations that arise with having goats.
Great book for the first time owner. Should be on anyone's shelf that is considering buying goats.
The book is smaller than most, with only 93 pages, but has some very nice illustrations and photos. The topics covered include: Buying Goats; Housing and Equipment; Feeding; Care and Management; Health Maintenance and Sickness; Breeding and Raising Young; Goat Products; and Goat Breeds of the World.
All in all this is an ok book, but should not be the primary resource for someone entering into raising goats.
I first want the goats to help clear about 7 acres of thick woods and brush after that I would like to start milking. Just enough for family and friends when they stop by. This book didn't get me any closer to the knowledge level I would like to be at to start either of these projects. It assumes that the reader knows more than he or she probably does in some sections then breaks things down to the most dull basic level in others.
