Review: Goat Medicine

User Review  - Tamara Taylor - Goodreads

The absolute gold standard of goat health books. Indepth, yet not beyond the grasp of the average goatkeeper. This book is a must for every farmer's bookshelf. Note: better to read as a reference guide rather than cover to cover or you'll end up as a goaty hypochondriac :) Read full review
