Completely revised Agrodok: Goat keeping

Goats play an important role in food production systems in developing countries. They are popular because they are able to adapt to many different climates and they can be used in several ways. They can serve as a bank account which can be drawn on when cash is needed and they provide high quality milk and meat. They are tougher than cattle and they are small animals and so they cost less per animal to keep.

 In this Agrodok the authors provide detailed information on goat breeding. They also deal with raising and selecting young animals for reproduction, meat and cross breeding. There are chapters on nutrition, feeding and housing as well as on how to deal with the common diseases and parasites that affect these animals. Goat products such as milk, meat, bones, hide and manure are also dealt with.

This Agrodok is available in French and in English.
