Work with nature to raise dairy goats in any yard...

Backyard Dairy Goats is a book focusing on raising dairy goats in a way that respects their nature, on any amount of land.

Backyard dairying is achievable for anyone. It doesn't have to be a dream that may happen one day in the distant future, it could happen now, and this book will show you how.

Topics covered include:

-Everything you need to know about goats - their behaviour, how to feed them, handle them, what they need to thrive, and so on.

-Natural goat health, how to prevent and fix most issues without a vet.

-Learning from observation, and goat behaviour in the wild to provide the right foods for goats to thrive.

-A permaculture approach, looking at the whole backyard ecosystem and the many interactions between goats, animals, garden, people, and trees.

-Goat dairy as a homemade staple food, for health, survival and self reliance. Recipes included

-Small batch cheesemaking.

Backyard Dairy Goats is a practical book to be looked at whenever there is a question about goats, and also a guide that will take the complete beginner from knowing nothing about goats, to finding their first goats, through to being a confident dairy goat owner that can deal with (and prevent) common goat medical issues.
