Here at James Hill, we try to raise all our animals (and our garden) as naturally as possible, avoiding most chemicals entirely and using others only when necessary. One of my favorite resources for this method of rearing goats is the book "Natural Goat Care" by Pat Coleby.
As a nurse, I know that many health conditions can be avoided or improved by maintaining proper nutrition. This book contains excellent information on goat nutrition and husbandry. There has been some controversy over a few of her recommendations (specifically those regarding copper supplementation), but overall she provides an excellent blueprint for those of us who prefer a holistic approach to goat management.
Pat's book is available on Amazon both in print and Kindle format. It's an interesting and informative read. One of my favorite, go-to goat resources!
