    their is a ton of books on goats what would be a good one for me?
    i am experienced with farm animals chicens cows horses pigs but not goats. i am trying to start raising goats for profit the county is suppling incentives for tobbaco farmers to switch to other types of farming. so i thought i would give goats a try.

    Welcome to the wonderful world of goats!! It sounds like you'll be getting into meat goats, right? There are 3 that I would highly recommend...
    1. Raising Meat Goats for Profit by Gail Bowman
    2. Meat Goats of Caston Creek by Sylvia Tomlinson
    3. Meat Goats, Their History, Management and Diseases by Stephanie and Allison Mitcham.
    And also a subscription to Goat Rancher Magazine this will give you up to date articles and information on what's going on in the industry.
