Read full description of the books:
Honeslty, I was a bit disappointed. I saw the author speak at a goat expo, and two of my questions were answered with "it's in my book".
The first was "are there any resources out there for Nigerian Dwarf goats specifically". While she does talk about her experiences with that breed, she never gets specific enough for it to really matter. This book does not add anything to common goat knowledge that cannot be found in another volume, and never are there any numbers, ratios, or feed charts specifically for Nigis. Because of their size and high milkfat, standard goat guidelines often don't work for them, and I was hoping that she would cover that in this book.
My second question came after she claimed to have a "self-sufficient" homestead. I was curious about feed sources and how they impact sustainability, again I was told to spend money and find it in her book. Again I was disappointed when the (small) chapter on feed said the same thing that every other goat book says, and did not touch on self-sufficient farming techniques for sourcing this feed.
All in all, it's not a bad book, but I was really disappointed after the author claimed that it contained such specific information. All of the info here is very basic, and while helpful to beginners, could easily be found in other books or even for free from university extension websites. I'm glad I rented this from the library instead of paying for it.
