Overview

Home Farm Handbook, The: A Comprehensive Guide to Successfully Buying, Keeping and Managing Popular Farm Animals by Peter Ford


Here's a comprehensive guide to keeping farm animals in backyards, paddocks, or on larger tracts of land. The book is divided into separate sections that present basic facts and advice on raising and keeping chickens, ducks, geese, beehives, sheep, and goats. Information includes breeding poultry for eggs, and goats for milk and cheese—in short, raising animals the way that farmers do, for the owners' economic benefit. Advice touches on all aspects of animal husbandry, choosing and breeding, providing shelters and housing, feeding, routine care, and disease prevention. The book features more than 120 full-color illustrations, sidebars, and quick-reference tables.
