GOAT MIDWIFERY: A GUIDE TO SUCCESSFUL KIDDING
Author: Cheryl K. Smith
Goat Midwifery: A Guide to Successful Kidding is a comprehensive book dedicated to care of the pregnant, laboring, and postpartum goat. The book will give goat owners the benefit of knowledge that, until now, could only be learned from years of hands-on experience working with goats, or gleaned from information in various books, websites, and articles. In addition, because it usually happens at only one season of the year, solutions to problems that came up the prior year may be forgotten.
This handy, first-line resource will help goatkeepers prevent problems and provide the tools necessary for identifying and dealing with problems when they do arise. Liberally illustrated with photos and drawings, the book will take the reader from pre-breeding considers through pregnancy, birth, and postpartum. The book includes stories and case studies, as well as how-to's, tips, and tricks acquired by the author through more than 20 years' experience researching and hands-on experience raising goats.
