Book
A city kid, Katie Normet's fascination for large animals led her to study animal sciences at university. Today, she and her family run river's Edge Goat Dairy where Katie oversees a herd of some 75 goats that produce more than 50,000 liters of milk a year. Much of this milk is transformed into delicious yogurt, cheese, soaps and moisturizing creams, which Normet sells at local markets. Raising and Keeping Dairy Goats is Normet's account of the daily challenges and rewards of life as a goat farmer. She explores all the big-picture issues in goat husbandry, including purchasing, housing, feeding, breeding, kidding, milking,and diseases. There are also chapters on cheese making and soap making with tips and recipes.--COVER.
