First published in 1957, this book reflects the increased interest in goats and their agricultural potential. This edition brings the original text up-to-date, including new EC regulations and government Codes of Practice, the production of home-grown cashmere and mohair, as well as the new natural fibre, cashgora, obtained from cross-bred goats. Information on the formation of new societies for breeders and farmers of specialist breeds, the expansion of knowledge of nutritional needs of goats, and the increase in the number of large herds with the resulting availability of goat dairy produce in supermarkets is also included.
