For the thousands of small-scale farms and backyard homesteaders who keep dairy goats, Storey's Guide to Raising Diary Goats is the go-to reference for learning how to house, feed, milk, breed, and raise healthy and productive goats.
Jerry Belanger and Sara Thomson Bredesen are the coauthors of Storey's Guide to Raising Dairy Goats. They have both been involved in dairy goat farming for more than 30 years. Belanger is the former editor and publisher of Countryside & Small Stock Journal. Bredesen is a licensed cheese maker and goat cheese promoter and a former operator of one of Wisconsin's first goat cheese farmsteads.
"With an engaging style, the authors delve into both the 'what' and
the 'why' of raising dairy goats, educating with the facts
and the underlying philosophies to help you make good
decisions in all aspects of your dairy goat enterprise. A valuable
resource for beginners and experienced producers alike!" -- D.
