    I found this while doing a search on housing. It was a link on another site that lead to this one. Its very informative for new and not so new alike. I have a bunch of other links also that I may add to this post if its ok.

    good info, some of it seems a bit outdated though, it says best time to casterate males is at a few days old.

    I did notice that part but most is still very useful for those just learning to raise goats and other animals. I like that not only does it explain what to do, it shows in the pictures and drawings. I believe the handbook is from 2006 and is pretty close in what we do now.

    The UN has a bunch of information and books like this on line. These are used by peace corp and the UN when they are trying teach locals who to be self sustaning.

    I think I have the whole collection or at least most of it. They are really informative.
