Holistic Goat Care: A Comprehensive Guide to Raising Healthy Animals, Preventing Common Ailments, and Troubleshooting Problems

by Gianaclis Caldwell, 368 pages, 5½x12, hardcover. A few years ago Fedco staffer Michele and I talked about her ailing Nigerian dwarf goat. She described how “stealing fresh cud” from a healthy goat and transferring it to the ailing one had done the trick. Oral transfaunation. I had, in the same way, cured our young prized ram from wasting away. A standard procedure, but none of the goat-care books I had read detailed this practice. I wanted a compilation of all such holistic and common-sense practices in one reference volume. This book covers everything I wanted to learn more about, plus a lot that I didn’t know I needed to learn. Caldwell not only provides a comprehensive guide to goat husbandry at its best but also pulls you into the contemporary world of goats, including profiles of goat farmers and lots of photos. As she did in her previous books on cheesemaking and running a farm business, Caldwell conveys her personal experience with ease while packing the pages with information. This book is indispensable to anyone looking to raise healthy and happy goats for meat or dairy. -Aktan Askin
