Goats thrive on fully organic natural care. As natural browsers, they have higher mineral requirements than other domestic animals, so diet is a critical element to maintaining optimal livestock health. In Natural Goat Care, consultant Pat Coleby shows how to solve health problems both with natural herbs and medicines and the ultimate cure, bringing the soil into healthy balance. Topics include: correct housing and farming methods; choosing the right livestock; diagnosing health problems; nutritional requirements and feeding practices; vitamins and herbal, homeopathic and natural remedies; psychological needs of goats; breeds & breeding techniques.

Accurate and Pertinent Information

Excellent! I use Pat Coleby’s information on a daily basis. I purchased this one for a novice goat farmer in hopes that she could glean as much from it as I have. Amazingly informative and insightful. A MUST for every goat herder.
