Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Whatever your reasons for wanting to raise meat goats might be, if you’re curious about, thinking about, or planning to start a meat goat enterprise, you probably have lots of questions: What kind of goats should you choose? How do you buy them and care for them? How do they reproduce? How do you sell them?
 
Having faced all of those questions and more, longtime goat rancher Yvonne Zweede-Tucker draws on twenty years of hands-on experience to help you raise your own meat goats. Illustrated throughout with color photography, this instructive handbook includes advice about breeds, feeding, housing, safety, health, kidding, butchering, and selling product, as well as a glossary and a resources appendix.
 
If you’re bold and ready to take on a new challenge with meat goats, The Meat Goat Handbook will be an invaluable guide.
