Keeping a Family Goat (9/27/08)

Goat Barn - G. PrunhuberPresentation by Gayle Prunhuber at ESP’s September 27, 2008 Gathering at Gayle’s Home (Loon Lake Gardens & Pottery)


Gayle introduced us to her goats, chickens and horses, and gave us a tour of her gardens and barns.  

Wonderful detail on general care of goats, including food and shelter for both kids and does;  milking, including her wash formula; hoof trimming; supplements; breeding; treatment of diseases and other health concerns.  Also shared samples of her homemade cheese (chevre-like).
