CashMirror Magazine

Cashmirror magazine was published monthly by Goat Knoll Farm and others for 14 years, from 10/1989 to 11/2003. The magazine was specific to cashmere goats. It includes articles about cashmere goat management, farm features, research articles and some things just for fun. Some of the information is dated and advertising is fairly irrelevant, but lots of good cashmere goat information and history is contained here. We are in the process of scanning the issues. They will be listed here for you as we scan them in. So far, all of the issues that are included in the index have been digitized. We are working our way through the older issues as time allows.
