There is a growing interest in commercial goat production, in both the developed and the developing world, and current studies in this aspect of livestock management have also revealed the useful role which goats may play in the management and improvement of pasture. This book is one of the first of its kind to be published in the English language and its emphasis is on how to develop a goat herd as a viable commercial activity rather than merely as a hobby. It applies current scientific advances to practical commercial enterprise and covers breeding, handling and housing, nutrition, milk, meat and fibre production and management. The book also sets out methods of improving breed efficiency and nutrition, optimizing herd size and processing goat products on the farm for increased profit, and is aimed at the general public who are interested in the commercial rearing of goats, undergraduate agricultural students and those qualified in livestock management who wish to further their knowledge on this specialized aspect of the subject. 159pp chocka-block full of Billy & Nanny info such as photos, graphs, tables, referrals & tips&tricks.
