Abstract:

Goats have been used for their dairy products for hundreds of years, providing a wide array of milk, butter, yogurt, and cheeses that provide the unique flavors that make Mediterranean cuisine so special. For those who are interested in raising their own dairy goats so they can take advantage of the milk products provided, it is important to first of all learn everything possible about dairy goats, from what they eat to how they breed and how to cultivate and harvest the milk when the time comes. This book provides every detail you could possible need to become a dedicated or hobbyist dairy goat breeder and farmer. You will learn how goats are raised for different purposes, including as dairy goats, fiber goats, and as a means to maintain property. You will learn how to select the right breed of goat and how to know what to look for in a specific goat. You will also learn about how to start the process of breeding goats, including the care for the mother, separation of the father, and the necessary care for the kid once it is born. You will learn how to properly house goats and what they require from you to remain healthy and happy, both in their feed and their space. Expert goat farmers have been interviewed and have provided their insight and expertise on the topic, building a collection of insights of tips and tricks about raising dairy goats. You will learn how to care for your dairy goats and what special treatment or care they require from you. You will also learn what you need to provide for the dairy goats to produce as much milk as possible. Finally, you will learn how to gather the milk from the dairy goats and how to both process and sell it to maintain your business. For anyone who has ever been interested in raising goats for dairy production, this guide will offer you everything you need.
