The 3rd edition of the Indigenous Goat Production Handbook is available. This book aims to assist owners of indigenous goats with semi-intensive and extensive farming systems. It looks at ways to improve the productivity of their herds and start commercializing. This edition contains an expanded section on internal parasites, specifically worms, innovations that have been carried out with farmers in South Africa such as goat dips and kid enclosures, and the results of lessons learned since the last edition. The book is part of an ongoing collaboration of the KwaZulu Natal Goat Agribusiness Project with HPSA, Mdukatshani, and the South African government and vets.
