Damerow, author of several books on chickens and a breeder of dairy goats, has compiled this primer on easy-to-raise and companionable farm animals. She discusses the pros and cons of keeping farm animals, including a discussion of manure, noise, and dealing with the neighbors. Six types of livestock are covered in depth, starting with chickens as perhaps the easiest to keep, then moving through ducks and geese, rabbits, goats, sheep, and finally dairy and beef cattle. Each chapter introduces the animal and describes breeds; discusses the animal's personality and how to handle it; provides information on feeding, housing, and routine care; and finally tells how to deal with the animal's output of eggs, milk, fiber, or meat.

This is a very thorough introduction to small scale animal farming.
