Nigerian Dwarf Goats 201: Getting Started

Nigerian Dwarf Goats 201: Getting Started

I will confess – we do not have goats on our farm.  However, we are always looking for ways to adjust, change or adapt as needed.  I was given the opportunity to read this, and I am so glad I did.  This is one of the best books on livestock I have read. Lesa Wilke presents the information in a thorough and detailed way, yet it is still easy to understand. As a livestock owner, I can nod my head at her ‘Lessons Learned’ sections, and appreciate how she outlines everything from why you want goats, housing and step-by-step care, to parasite controls and downloadable forms, charts and even shopping lists.

This is the second in a 6-book series.  Nigerian Dwarf Goats 101: Background and Basics: What to Know & Understand Before Committing to Nigerian Dwarf Goats is the first.  It is a little shorter, but still gives you information you seriously need to consider about this goat breed before you buy them.

For anyone considering buying goats, this is the best series to help you understand Nigerian Dwarf goats. Even if you already own Nigerian Dwarf goats, this series is still one you will want on your bookshelf for reference. I plan on reading all of them, just in case the opportunity arises for me to purchase them.  Reading this one has certainly tempted me to look more closely at having goats. I am looking forward to reading the rest of this series!
