Join us for a series of farm tours of commercial goat dairies across the State.
Connect with other goat dairy producers and with Extension dairy specialists to see and discuss parlor and barn design, herd health, goat dairy financials, grazing, considerations for value-added production, and more. Goat dairy producers of all sizes, those interested in starting or transitioning to goat dairy production, and agricultural service providers are all welcome!
All events are free and registration is requested. Coffee and light snacks will be provided.
