Description Description

Get Your Goat is a comprehensive, engaging way to answer all your questions about keeping goats, as backyard farm animal or even as a pet.

It’s all about back to basics: consumers are rejecting consumption and looking for more and more ways to reconnect with the earth, the community, and their food sources. Many people who have tried keeping chickens, toyed with turkeys, or even just fantasized about converting their quarter-acre suburban yard into a pasture has no doubt wondered: What about goats? I don't live on a farm—how do these lively, intelligent creatures fit into my life?

This is a complete handbook for keeping all breeds of goats on smaller acreage. It includes essential information on the nuts and bolts of goat behavior:

  • An extensive breed guide that teaches you how to make the best choice of breed for your lifestyle
  • Fencing and housing
  • Health and wellness
  • Whether to raise goats for product (milk, meat, fiber) or for companionship
  • And more

Get Your Goat is written for the new goat keeper, with all the right questions in mind!
