Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Kept as pets, raised for their milk, meat, or fiber, or prized for their beauty or rarity, goats are increasingly popular animals on farms large and small. Whether you raise a favored few or a hundred head, this guide is the ultimate resource on North American breeds. The book provides detailed descriptions of more than twenty goat breeds found in the United States and Canada, from the popular Nubian, Pygmy, and Boer to the rare and lovely Golden Guernsey. Illustrated with 150 color photographs, this convenient, easy-to-use field guide includes exhaustive information about behavior, characteristics, breeding, and history, as well as a glossary of caprine terms and a list of breed associations. It is the essential reference that anyone with an interest in goats should not be without.
