As a novice to raising any kind of goats I've been reading most of the goat raising books I can get my hands on. This book answered all of my questions about raising goats. Personally, I like the fact that this covered raising meat goats which are not going to slaughter, because we are going to be raising Boer's for pets. The author did a fantastic job. This book and Sue Weaver's Raising Goats book are my favorites of every book I've read.
