Dairy goats are not nearly as numerous as dairy cattle in the United States, but, for many other countries of the world, they are the leading milk producers because they are well adapted to limited areas and require less specialized feed, most of which can be produced by the small land owner. There are actually more people consuming dairy goat products in the world than those consuming the products from dairy cattle.
Learning activities focus on these major concepts: selection, management, nutrition, milk production, exhibiting, health, and quality assurance.
Record keeping is an important part of the Dairy Goat Project and the dairy goat business. Records are kept on the breeding, milking, type and amount of feed fed. Vaccinations and other herd health practices are noted.
As with all the animal projects in the SRF, a completed record book or summary sheet and show sponsor thank you letter must be turned in for an exhibitor to show his or her animal.
