This book contains a detailed guide to keeping goats, with detailed information on the various breeds of goat and their profitable management. Profusely illustrated and containing all the information necessary for successful goat keeping, this volume is highly recommended for modern farmers, and would make for a fantastic addition to collections of allied literature. Contents include: "Origin and Early History of the Goat", "Varieties of Goats", "British Milch Goats", "Oriental and African Coats", "The Angora or 'Mohair' Goat", "The Cashmere of 'Shawl' Goat", "Cross-Bred Goats", "Selecting a Milch Goat", "The Goat House", "Pasturing", etc. Many vintage books like this are becoming increasingly hard-to-come-by and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality addition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on goat farming.
