Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

PRODUCE YOUR OWN MILK, CHEESE, MEAT,

FIBER, FERTILIZER AND MORE

With endearing personal stories and layman's scientific explanations, Raising Goats Naturally lays an enjoyable and empowering foundation for goat-rearing success on the self-reliant farmstead. --- Joel Salatin, Polyface Farm

Raising Goats Naturally is an excellent starting point and guide for anyone about to dive into the world of goats. The book does a marvelous job in covering practical approaches to husbandry and how to avoid the pitfalls that novices often encounter. ---Jeannette Beranger, Research and Technical Programs Manager, American Livestock Breeds Conservancy

There is no one-size-fits-all approach to raising goats (or any livestock for that matter). But by working with nature, you can raise dairy goats as the centerpiece of a diversified homestead and produce your own milk, cheese, meat, fertilizer, leather, fiber, and soap — all without relying on drugs or following the factory farm model. By observing your own animals closely and educating yourself about their specific needs, you can create an individualized plan for keeping them healthy and maximizing their productivity. This unique, fully-illustrated guide will teach you to help your herd thrive with:

• breed-specific descriptions to help you choose the right goats for your goals and lifestyle

• detailed information on housing, fencing, breeding, health, milking, and nutrition

• complete recipes and instructions for making your own cheese, dairy products, and soap, as well as cooking with goat meat.

Packed with personal experiences backed up by expert veterinary advice and scientific studies, Raising Goats Naturally brings together a wealth of practical information on raising goats for the love of it and using their milk and meat to become more self-reliant.

Deborah Neimann cuts through the formulaic and often inflexible so-called “expert advice” and encourages us to get to know our animals and listen to what they tell us. Drawing on vast experience Neimann offers an upbeat, authentic glimpse of what life with dairy goats is really like. ---Hank Will, sustainable farmer, Editor in Chief of GRIT Magazine, author of Plowing with Pigs

Deborah Niemann is a homesteader, writer and self-sufficiency expert who has raised livestock for over 10 years. The author of Homegrown and Handmade and Ecothrifty, she presents extensively on skills for living a self-reliant life.…
