The Angora Goat,history ,management and diseases May 13 2005
By sheep crazy - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
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.
very complete and informative Jan. 6 2009

Format: Paperback
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.
OK for what it is.. Sept. 19 2013

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
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.
Good information...albeit a little difficult to stick with Oct. 4 2005

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.
