Whether you want to raise goats for their milk and fiber or keep them as pets or companion animals, this book covers all the essentials. You’ll learn how to choose the right goats for your needs and space, house and feed them, keep them healthy, and train them to do simple tricks, pull and drive carts, and serve as pack goats. You’ll also learn how to milk, shear, breed, raise newborn kids, and more. The Backyard Goat makes it easy to enjoy the benefits of owning a goat or two, with no experience necessary.

About the author
Sue Weaver began writing in 1969, when she sold her first article to The Western Horseman. Since then she’s written hundreds of magazine articles and eight books about livestock, horses and chickens, including Storey’s Guide to Raising Miniature Livestock, The Backyard Goat and The Donkey Companion. Weaver and her husband share their ridgetop farmette in the southern Ozarks with an array of animal friends, including poultry, sheep, goats, horses, a donkey who thinks she’s a horse, two llamas, a pet razorback pig and two steers — a Jersey-Holstein and a water buffalo, both of whom Weaver is training to ride and drive.
