Dairy and Meat Goats

Dairy goat production is an alternative livestock enterprise suitable for many small-scale or part-time livestock operators. Some producers market goat milk or cheeses processed on-farm. Others sell milk to processors. Dairy goat producers can also consider selling the animals to hobbyists and youth involved in vocational livestock projects. Meat goats were one of the earliest animals to be domesticated and are often underrated as farm livestock. Goat meat is the primary source of protein in many parts of the world.
