Appendix XI contains information on preventing and coping with various errors that can be made by nutritionists and feed mills. Meat Goats, their History, Management and Diseases has been written especially for North Americans whose interest in raising goats for their healthful and delicious meat (chevon) has burgeoned in the past decade. Prior to this time, only a relatively small number of farmers and ranchers in this part of the world raised goats - mostly Angoras in Texas (for mohair) or milk goats (for their especially digestible milk products) - although 'Spanish' or 'brush' goats have long been a presence in the South (particularly in Texas). Since goats are not indigenous to this continent, the authors of this book have discussed the pros and cons of recent imports (such as the Boer and Kiko) as well as the more established 'Spanish' goat. [9 breeds in all have been considered.] The authors have not only set down their opinions and experiences but have cited those of recognized goat experts worldwide.
Reviews:
  • Uttegirazu
It has had the answers to many questions we had as first time goat owners. We encourage our foster girls to find answers when they have a question about our goats.
  • Prince Persie
good information
  • uspeh
I found this to be both easy to read and informative. Good pictures, tables and discribes problems and their solutions. Good way to get into the goat bsuiness. Don't take lightly fences they work both way, keeps them in and others out.

This is a well written book suitable for everyone from the history buff to the producer raising meat goats for profit. It provides excellent coverage on a wide variety of topics including species and breed history, practical and advanced animal husbandry, and thorough explanation of animal disease including parasitism, metabolic disease, reproduction, and infectious and contagious disease.

The sections covering veterinary care are as thorough as most any veterinary textbook but are presented in a concise and practical format. This user-friendly presentation makes the book great for quickly referencing material, making it a must-have for any goat producer, meat or otherwise. The sections on diseases cover many of the questions I frequently receive regarding symptom identification. Having this book as a reference would certainly enable most goat raisers to become proficient enough to recognize and treat themselves many of the common disease conditions that afflict goats, if they were so inclined. Additionally, because the book outlines the pathophysiology of many of the disease processes, they will also gain the basic knowledge necessary to understand not only what they are treating but also how it happened. In doing so, producers will be better equipped to address issues with their own stock more proactively.

As a veterinarian practicing in the "age of the internet," I've encountered countless client stories of misinformation obtained "online" regarding animal health. It is refreshing to have clients reference a reliable source of information written by someone who is experienced not only as a meat goat producer but also as a veterinarian, as is Dr. Mitcham. I recommend it to my clients and have used it as a reference myself on more than one occasion!

DR. MITCHAM DOES AN EXCELLENT JOB OF DESCRIBING ALL ASPECTS OF RAISING MEAT GOATS. THIS EXTREMELY COMPLETE AND DETAILED BOOK IS A MUST FOR BOTH THE BEGINNER AND THE EXPERIENCED GOAT RAISER. THIS BOOK IS BASIC ENOUGH FOR SOMEONE NEW TO THE MEAT GOAT INDUSTRY AS WELL AS PROVIDING PLENTY OF INFORMATION FOR ADVANCED GOAT FARMERS/RANCHERS.

I found this book packed full of useful information, in an easy to read and interesting format. The history section alone is worth the price of the book. I use it as a reference book, but also is great for recreational reading.
Lots of good history. Too much personal opinion of the breeds usefulness. Still a good addition to my library.
