About this book

Goats are a diverse range of beautiful (and sometimes rare) animals. Billy or nanny goats are the source of many a children's story – who hasn't read The Three Billy Goats Gruff to their children?

Goats were taken into the human fold over 10 000 years ago and most have been wandering the fields, hillsides and mountains since Adam were a lad. From some we obtain the fibre to create exquisite mohair and cashmere clothing. From others we obtain possibly more mundane (but equally important and extremely healthy) meat and milk; the latter being frequently turned into mouthwatering cheeses, bringing joy to me and a living to many farmers.

Goats are browsers and prefer unwanted brush, briar and weeds to grass, their lips and tongues choosing only the tastiest plants. Extremely intelligent and curious, they also are experts at escaping from 'secure' fields. Apart from keeping your fields looking good, they can make excellent pets.

In Know Your Goats Jack Byard gives us information on some 37 breeds of goats from all around the world, including photographs, size and weight, hair type and history.
