Keeping Geese is a complete guide to the domesticated goose. It shows how this intelligent bird has been absorbed into different cultures throughout history, from the taming of the Greylag and the Swan goose to the exhibition of the mighty Toulouse. Written from thirty years of first-hand experience of keeping, breeding and exhibiting these birds, Keeping Geese gives an insight into their habits and behaviour. Pure breeds of geese, hand-reared, are tame, responsive and intelligent and reared well, they will give hours of interest and pleasure for life. Illustrated with over 160 photographs and diagrams, this comprehensive study of geese covers the following and much more: domestication of the goose from the wild, and development of the breeds; why keep geese - as garden pets, eggs, exhibition, table birds; getting started with geese; understanding geese - breeds, physiology and behaviour; management of adult stock; breeding, incubation and rearing goslings; recognizing and treating ailments.

Die Bekenntnisse einer Katze auf Erleuchtungssuche »Der Dalai Lama ist ein Meister im Umgang mit dem Dosenöffner«, weiß His Holiness’s Cat. Dass er zudem einer der spirituellen Führer der Welt ist, findet die Hauskatze in Dharamsala durchaus angemessen. Während er Staatsmänner, Mönche, Prominente und andere Besucher unterweist, hält sie Hof. Was das Kätzchen dabei aufschnappt, gibt es – durch seine blauen, schrägen Augen betrachtet – auf ebenso inspirierende wie unterhaltsame Weise wieder. So erfährt man viel Berührendes und Überraschendes aus der Welt seiner Heiligkeit. David Michie gelingt ein kleines Kunststück: Seine Protagonistin holt die buddhistische Lehre auf den Boden und vermittelt »auf leisen Pfoten«, wie wir Menschen Glück und Sinn finden können.

Goose Production

This publication aims to provide guidance on sustainable goose production systems that are based on the natural physiological and behavioural advantages of the goose. These advantages include the fact that: they can consume and digest large amounts of high fibre and low-quality feed; they are easy to manage; and their rapid growth renders them one of the most efficient sources for meat production. In addition, feathers/down and fatty liver are valuable by-products, while their strong territorial instinct makes them very effective guards. As selective feeders, geese have been used for weed control in a wide range of crops. All aspects of goose production are discussed in this book, including feeding and nutrition, housing, general husbandry, flock heath and breeding. Regional differences in production practices are also described.
