It's all about back to basics: consumers are rejecting consumption and looking for more and more ways to reconnect with the earth, the community, and their food sources. Many people who have tried keeping chickens, toyed with turkeys, or even just fantasized about converting their quarter-acre suburban yard into a pasture has no doubt wondered: What about goats? I don't live on a farm--how do these lively, intelligent creatures fit into my life? Get Your Goat is a comprehensive, engaging way to answer all your questions about keeping goats, as backyard farm animal or even as a pet.

This is a complete handbook for keeping all breeds of goats on smaller acreage. It includes essential information on the nuts and bolts of goat behavior; an extensive breed guide that teaches you how to make the best choice of breed for your lifestyle; fencing and housing; health and wellness; whether to raise goats for product (milk, meat, fiber) or for companionship; and more... written for the new goat keeper, with all the right questions in mind!

Like most people who write about goats, Zimmerman has a large herd and makes his living from them. Still, this is very informative for the pet goat owner. Clearly written with short stories about his personal experience included.
