Goat FarmingBook - 1992
This second edition of a book on goats reflects the increasing interest in these animals as a domestic breed. The book emphasizes the impressive perrformance of the goat - it has the ability to survive in areas of the world that will not support other livestock, and in such environments it will produce products of value to man. Breeds of goats have been developed to yield prodigious quantities of product. For example, on a body weight comparison, a good milking goat produces much more milk than a cow in a comparable environment and the Angora goat grows its fine mohair coat at an impressive rate.
