Book Description

June 1 1999
This invaluable guide - newly revised and enlarged due to popular demand - is intended for those concerned with the raising, care and maintenance of Angora goats. It supplies much useful, practical information on how to get started in the goat business, the facilities needed, the importance of record keeping, nutrition, shearing, marketing and, in the most detailed section, clear and precise guidance in recognising and dealing with the diseases and parasites which can afflict Angoras. This new and enlarded addition also provides additional fascinating historical facts about Angoras, a detailed explanation of the ins and outs of producing the increasingly popular colored Angoras, as well as - in the chapter entitled "Food for Thought" - a selection of succulent recipes for goat meat.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Angora Goat,history ,management and diseases May 13 2005
By sheep crazy - Published on Amazon.com
The section on the history of Angora's was very interesting! Any goat or sheep owners or prospective owners could really benefit from this book, plus it is easy to read. Includes info on such a wide range, even includes usesful info on shearing time, guard animals, and herding dogs. Wish I'd had this book when I was starting out in the business.
5.0 out of 5 stars very complete and informative Jan. 6 2009
By Rural Girl - Published on Amazon.com
I am getting an angora in the spring, and this book discusses everything for the angora, feeding, breeding, fleeces,housing, you name it. There were even a few recipes included at the end if you need to cull your herd and eat the meat yourself! As a beginner, I felt I learned a great deal from reading this book and will keep it as a reference for the future.
3.0 out of 5 stars OK for what it is.. Sept. 19 2013
By MamaLove - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
This is a good general book, but isn't well organized, is missing some key information (like how to care for a kid who's been refused by her Mama), and THERE IS NO INDEX...which is exceedingly frustrating in informative books such as this.
If you're purely interested in taking care of Angora fiber, this book can be helpful...but don't expect to use it for general goat care, by any means.
If you're interested in having an Angora FARM, and mixing the rations all yourself, instead of buying pre-mixed, this book is chock-full of that type if information too.
I really think this book should be re-named: The Angora Goat FARM
5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent resource for beginners Feb. 7 2010

I am new to Angora goat raising, and found this book to be full of valuable information on everything from feeding to kid raising. I will go back to this book again and again.
4.0 out of 5 stars Good information...albeit a little difficult to stick with Oct. 4 2005
By K. Herrin - Published on Amazon.com
The information is very good for the novice goat owner...just slightly dry. Stick with it, though, because knowledge is everything when starting a new venture with animals.
