Exceeded my hopes and expectations - GREAT BOOK

Gail Bowman is the sort of writer that most all authors could learn from. More important, Gail Bowman is obviously experienced in the craft she writes about and her love of the most cantankerous of farm critters shows through.This is one of the few chatty how-to books that I have found did not waste even a page of type.No matter the topic, it is apparent Ms Bowman has learned from experience and is unafraid to tell us her mistakes as well as her successes. But, she is not preachy and doesn't try to convince us there is only one way. She freely informs us of methods and techniques, and even other breeds, reported to her by other breeders.I had long thought the best way to try and make a living with goats would be as a dairy, but, milking a hundred goats can be mighty tiring for a bare living. Thus, I was considering meat goats after downloading some introductory blurbs published by the Saskatchewan Ag folks.I, however, remained skeptical of meat goats for profit. I was concerned I might be getting into a branch of agriculture for dreamers (the visionary sort, no disrespect meant) but, at age 50, I just don't feel the hankering to blaze any new trails. In other words, I want to let today's youth do the experimenting. I just want to earn money to sock away for my retirement.Well, Ms Bowman has done a great job in showing me that meat goats are not the 21st Century equivalent of ostrich, emu, elk, deer and bison. They are a viable farm product that can produce a reasonable income without having to create a new market or without having to depend on other breeders for one's profit.I nominate Raising Meat Goats For Profit as one of the Best How-To books for the 21st Century!If I were still publishing farm magazines I would definitely be shouting the news to my readers. Raising Meat Goats For Profit is a masterpiece.

Meat Goat Information Galore

The book is wonderful, informative, up to date, practical, the list goes on and on. I highly recommend it to anyone with goats. Gail Bowman writes in an easy to read format. I can't say enough about the great quality of this book. Buy it, really, you won't be sorry.

Raising Meat Goats for Profit

I cannot say enough good words about this book. Every question I had was answered in laymen's terms and I would suggest anyone interested in raising goats to add this one to their library.

beginner at raising meat goats

This one is a keeper. The book is easy to read and understand. It was a joy to read. I am new to the goat business, but I feel that it will be very helpful when I go to pick out my first meat goat later this month (June 2001). Right now I am building fence with the help of my husband. I have learned how to house them, feed them and care for them. I may be even able to get my first sets of kids sometime in November. :o) Can't wait.

A Great Resource for Goat Breeders!

This is the best book that I have found for goat husbandry! The advise is sound, the book is easy to read and it covers most questions about how to raise goats, from how to feed them, breed them and house them to how to raise and sell the kids. Up to date, and enjoyable. A must have for any livestock library!
