Read what Dr. Steve Hart, Extension
Goat Specialist of Langston University says about
This book is just what the goat
industry needs if it is ever going to make the leap from being a
backyard hobby operation to becoming a legitimate food animal
production industry. While there are many books about raising meat
goats available, this one is different in that it is the only book
that addresses how to manage meat goats on a commercial scale.
Author Greg Christiansen draws on his years of experience in raising
meat goats on a commercial scale to explain the principles of
managing meat goats as a viable farm business. Greg tells you how to
breed does that are capable of working for you and the necessary
management to enable the does to do their job. He has excellent
sections on fencing goats, working facilities for goats, protecting
goats from predators, wintering goats and many other subjects
necessary for raising meat goats. This is the most practical how-to
book with real life examples of making management decisions to solve
problems I’ve seen. For the producer seeking to raise goats on a
commercial scale, this is the only book available with the necessary
information and it will be the best money you ever invested in your
goat business. Dr. Steve Hart,
Extension Specialist, Langston University Langston, OK.
About “Me” the Author
After receiving a Bachelor of
Science degree from Kansas State University in Animal Science, I
made my living for several years on cattle ranches to feedlots from
Colorado, Missouri, Texas and Oklahoma. I then moved with my wife,
Ann, son Tanner and two daughters, Megan and Ashley, to a farm in
east central Kansas and began a row crop farming and cattle
operation. About 12 years ago we started buying meat goats and began
to grow a herd with the occasional help of my son Tanner. In a
typical year, we will have more than 600 commercial does kidding,
along with raising corn, soybeans wheat, hay and cattle.
