Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

With minimal space and housing needs, dairy goats are a practical choice for the small or backyard dairy farmer. Dairy goats require a smaller investment than Cows and produce easily digested milk that is much in demand for making yogurt, cheese, and other dairy products.

The revised and updated fourth edition includes:

  • Updated information on disease diagnosis and treatment
  • Tips on choosing pygmy breeds
  • Expanded coverage of breeding, kidding, and raising kids
  • More information on milking, dairying, and cheesemaking
  • Expanded resource section

"This book will give answers and help novice goat owners get started. It can also be used by established goat owners wanting a reference in an easy-to-read format." — John D. Howland, American Goat Society, Inc.

About the Author

The guidance of goat raiser and author Jerry Belanger has been indispensible to new goat owners for many years, for he has been raising goats since the 1950's. He has written many books including Country Living, Homesteader's Handbook to Raising Small Livestock, Raising the Homestead Hog, and Storey's Raising Milk Goats the Modern Way. Jerry is editor and publisher of Countryside & Small Stock Journal, and lives in Waterloo, Wisconsin, with his wife Diane.
