Invaluable source of guidance on raising Goats

I’m myself a small-farm owner but never had the chance to raise goats, as the opportunity came I started to look for guidance and found this Audioboook. I found it perfect for me as a beginner, and easy to follow. I found the personal stories very relatable and made this new experience more enjoyable. Even though the author explains the basics, it also goes into detail and into more intricate topics such as breeding time and milk output for each of the breeds of goat. The “Do’s and Don’ts” chapter is invaluable especially for the newbies.

What I liked the most were the strategies, and tasks provided in the audiobook, so that you can make this effort a profitable source of additional income
The narrator does an extraordinary job on this Audiobook, it kept me attentive and engaged. I loved it!. All in all, an excellent Audiobook that deserves a 5 star!

Brilliant book for raising healthy, strong goats.

Bought this for my step-father as he has a small farm with three goats at this moment so very applicable. The chapter he gained the best knowledge from was ‘using resources’ as this have a very detailed breakdown of sanitation as well as breeding advice on dairy goats.

Brilliant!

My aunt has a huge property and I have always told her she should get some goats. She loved the idea, but didn't know what it would entail, or how to go about it. I just stumbled upon this book and it is absolutely brilliant! It has all the answers to your questions. If this is something you are thinking about doing, then listen to this!
