This vintage book contains a complete guide to keeping dairy goats, with information on selection, breeding, housing, necessary equipment, and many other related aspects. Written in simple, plain language and profusely illustrated, this detailed handbook is highly recommended for prospective farmers, and would make for a useful addition to collections of agricultural literature. Contents include: "Goat Farming", "Why Not Keep a Goat", "How to Choose a Goat", "Housing", "The Use and Abuse of Pasture", "Feeding", "Breeding", "The In-Kid Nanny", "Kid Rearing", "Male Goats", "General Management", "Milking, and the Care of Milk", "Butter and Cheese from Goats' Milk", etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on farming.
