    Storey's Guide to Raising Dairy/Meat goats was a good one, I have the Goats magazine and a Hobby Farm book somewhere, but what the actual names of them are escapes me....

    Just try to get info from multiple sources, especially breeders near you, and see what works for your herd.

    "the goat lady" is soooo cute!!!
    "raising goats for milk and meat" by rosalee sinn is my #1 favorite goat book.
     
  14. I have a well-worn copy of Storey's Guide to Raising Dairey Goats. It has been extremely useful and I refer to it often.

    Thanks for raising this topic. I think I would like to look into Milkmaid's suggestion on "Natural Goat Care" by Pat Coleby. Sounds like my kind of book.
