Glad I bought it, but it won't be your Bible of Goatherding. You will need more info.
Gail Luttmann does a very good job of staying aware that readers might have very large commercial herds or as few as two goats (it is rather cruel to force a goat to live alone, and Luttmann explains why). I feel after reading this book that I am capable of getting myself all set up with any goat herd size without being swindled in the process, and that I am prepared for the problems that will arise as my herd ages.
In short: If you're serious about raising dairy goats, and you can only get one book, pick this one.
Luttermann's book covers pretty much everything a goat keeper needs to know about dairy goats, although having been published in 1986 it might be a little out of date with regards to supplementation of various minerals such as copper. However one can find that info in other places, and its lack does not negate the value of this book.
Bottom line, if you're getting into goats, you should buy this book!
