Episode 7: Goats, Come Smell Our Dairy Air!

Everything you wanted to know about goats, specifically dairy goats. How we picked our breeds, how we set up our dairy, how we care for and make more goats. The fun and not so fun of raising these clever, gregarious ruminants.

Here are some links to the facts:

The book that started it all...The Backyard Goat by Sue Weaver
-I picked up this book about 10 years ago and I read it about 10 times before we even started looking at buying a ranch.

Other books in my library:
Living with Goats by Margaret Hathaway
Raising Milk Goats Succesfully by Gail Luttmann

Natural Goat Care by Pat Coleby

Fias Co Farm is a great resource and has extensive information as well as great herbal remedies.
