    1. I think I want to become a certified veterinarian before I take on goat raising. I also don't believe in drowning animals of either gender, just because YOU don't need or want them!

    2. Once again, Storey's guide is the authority on animals. We just bought two saanens and needed the lowdown on raising them in a hurry. This book was great for that purpose. The only thing I wish he covered in more detail was basics of owning a goat, such as how often to change their bedding, how much to feed them, if they can stay outside all day, etc. But all books/sites seem to overlook those necessary details, so Storey (Belanger) isn't alone. I did appreciate Belanger's unique tone and dry hu [...]

    3. This is certainly a good book for the budding goat enthusiast although some of the information is outdated; it is a bit folksy. I would like to have seen tables and charts with up-to-date information from the leading goat registries. In short, it is more of a neophyte's book rather than a book for the experienced goat keeper.

    4. I enjoyed this book but it's lacking in some practical advice. Admittedly it's not an encyclopedia but each section skims the surface. Still a very enjoyable book that tries to reach a wide audience.

    5. Very helpful for my pygoras, a hair breed. Not a lot of info out on hair breeds, but this book rocks as a basic guide to goats!

    6. Ok,I know most of you will not want to read this book but if you decide to start raising goats its an interesting prespective

    7. Great, informative book, gives a great overview as to what raising dairy goats is actually like with lots of real-world experience.

    8. During the spring of my junior year I wanted a goat so badly! I read this book cover to cover. learned tons!
