|GoatDairyLibrary.org A database of materials for the commercial goat milk producer|
|Table of contents
In the past, it was difficult to find information about setting up and managing a goat dairy. I felt that what was needed was a place where we could store everything we currently knew about goats and goat milk production, so it was easy to access. The Goat Dairy Library is my attempt to do that. I have extracted materials from professional articles, journals and books, and from interviews with experienced goat milk producers.
Here is what you need to know before you begin to use the library.
1) The information is listed first by general topic, and then summarized and placed in alphabetical order on each page as much as possible.
2) You will find a shortened citation immediately following the materials that will enable you to locate the resource in the Bibliography, so that you can verify the accuracy of the information and possibly do more research.
3) You will find some meat goat material on the site, as well as dairy goat information. This is because most of the currrent research on goats is being carried out at universities with meat goat programs. We are grateful that much of their material also applies to dairy goats.
4) There are many opinions presented on the site, and they don't always agree. Each farmer must make his/her own decision about what works best on their own farm. There is absolutely no warranty that the information on this site is correct, or that it will work for any given farm. Our main goal is to enable producers and their veterinarians to locate information, not to give advice. Please consult with your local veterinarian and extension agent to get the most up-to-date and accurate information available for your farm. If your agent or veterinarian does not have experience with goats, you may want to tell them about the following resources:
Readers may make a single digital or printed copy of materials on the site for their own personal use. Teachers, 4-H and FFA leaders may distribute these materials to their students without requesting permission, within the provisions of the education exceptions to the copyright laws. Each digital and printed copy should contain the following information: "These materials are the property of Goat Dairy Library, www.goatdairylibrary.org, accessed on (date)." For all other uses, please request permission by emailing email@example.com. Under no circumstances may anyone other than the owner of the Goat Dairy Library use these materials for financial gain.
Thank you for using The Goat Dairy Library
