Raising Angoras Up North

Monday, May 10, 2010

A book on the market by Susan Black Drummond offers advice for raising angora and cashmere goats in northern climates. Raising Angoras the Northern Way has chapters on shearing, feeding and general health care in addition to plans for feeders and laying out a barn.

While it’s not a new book, there’s a recent renewed interest in it. The book can be purchased through Mother Earth News and there are a couple of copies available on Amazon.
