Dan says: “Littleface and Brick were our first-ever experience with farm animals of any kind, and we wanted to be sure we didn’t screw anything up. This book helped us a lot, and continues to be a much-used reference. Technically, our boys are meat goats, but, we have no intention of using them that way. They’re here to eat the poison ivy, and just about anything else they can get their teeth into.”

This best-selling handbook is packed with detailed information on housing, feeding, and fencing dairy goats. It’s been the trusted resource on the topic for farmers and homesteaders since it was originally published in 1975, and the new edition — completely updated and redesigned — makes Storey’s Guide to Raising Dairy Goats more comprehensive and accessible than ever. In-depth sections explain every aspect of milking, including necessary equipment, proper hand-milking techniques, and handling and storing the milk. New color illustrations show each stage of kidding, and substantial chapters on dairy goat health and breeding include the most up-to-date research and practices.
