I would like to let you know that your magazine is very popular with our students.  Many of the students at this school are from a rural farming background and it has been fantastic to have some reading material that appeals to them, particularly the more reluctant readers.

Easy-lift goat crush provides boost to management

Downloadable Report - Format PDF

Price: 1.25p

Peter Jenkins and his wife Bun started with goats 15 years ago, which he kept along with other farm stock including dairy cattle, sheep and beef.  Over time his goat enterprise has expanded, and now they are his only livestock.  He has 350 milking, and a further 150 youngstock. Peter finds goats are good - they don’t
need heavy equipment like cattle, have no slurry problems, are easy to handle, intelligent, and have a will to live. Like any other commercial animal, goats require individual care. The main maintenance job is on their feet. Straw bedding provides no wear, so feet grow fast enough to need trimming three or even four times a year.  Youngsters need their first trim when around six months old, when they only weigh 20-30lbs. It adds up to a lot of feet, and, conventionally, a lot of bending, back-breaking work. Peter’s herd (never call them a flock) are housed for quite a large part of the year.
