people like me and the case of never having had goats, into a format that I can relate to and understand. lots of great info. I bought
a few other goat raising books along with this one, and I put them down because they just didn't 'flow' that well and I got bored trying to understand and they assume you know too much
any one book nor do all veterinarians deal with livestock (goats/sheep in particular).
Thank you Sincerly Roberta Reiley
Most of the book also was not true instructions. It gave scenarios or opinions that went like "some people do it like this other people do the opposite way you'll have to decide for yourself" this was a frequent occurrence in the book. lt was a little too focused on being politically correct to really give good sound instruction to the reader. I felt like I was glad I have read so many other books on other animals to help me Fill in the gaps on goats.
I am loving this book! It's clear, concise, well organized, & filled with worthwhile information. I have spent some time milking and caring for goats, but there is so much to learn. This book is a great starting point for a novice like me. I wish there were color pictures, it is all black and white, but aside from that this is a great book. It's also an enjoyable read and I would think even the experienced goat owner would want to own this book even if it's just for reference. A good book for the owner and the dreamer!
