Books I like:
The Accessible Pet, Equine and Livestock Herbal by Katherine A. Drovdahl. This is an excellent book, if you can only buy ONE book, buy this one. The author is a Certified Master Herbalist and a long time dairy goat owner. Her purebred LaMancha does have been on the ADGA’s Top Ten Breed Leader list (a DHIR award), and they show at a National level. Kat packs an amazing amount of information in this book. It is over 500 pages long, so you get your money’s worth and more out of it.
The Complete Herbal Handbook for Farm and Stable by Juliette Levy. With the growing interest in organic farming and increasing concern about the diet of farm animals.
Alternative Treatments for Ruminant Animals by Paul Dettloff, DVM. This covers many health issues of ruminants and natural ways to treat them. Including mastitis, toxemia, ketosis, and SO many more. He also discusses Nosodes (homeopathic) as natural “vaccinations” for CDT, mastitis, staph Au., CL, Lepto, Sore mouth… too many to list!
Nutrient Requirements of Small Ruminants: Sheep, Goats, Cervids, and New World Camelids (Animal Nutrition) this is part of the Animal Nutrition Series. A very interesting book – discusses vitamins, minerals, feed components, and dietary requirements of goats, sheep, cervids and new world camelids.
Nourishing Traditions: The Cookbook that Challenges Politically Correct Nutrition and the Diet Dictocrats by Sally Fallon.

Naturally Healthy Babies & Children: A Commonsense Guide to Herbal Remedies by Aviva J. Romm. When I first started on the road to natural healing and herbal information, this was a wonderful resource. Lots of information for raising your 2-legged kids (yes, the human ones) in a healthy way. 🙂
I have the following books available at my online store, Land of Havilah Herbals:
Herbal Home Health Care by Dr. John Christopher – This is one of the textbooks in the SNH Family Herbalist course. It is wonderful, and has some formulas in it along with info about herbal application, etc.
School of Natural Healing (The Centennial Edition) by Dr. John R. Christopher – This is an excellent herbal resource. Includes lots of recipes to make your own herbal formulas.
Dr. Mom’s Healthy Living by Sandra Ellis. This may be one of my all time favorite books! Sandra is the mother of several children, and this book begins with a chapter on how she used herbs to overcome many health issues – from minor to serious – all while she was a student at The School of Natural Healing. It is faithbuilding!
