Dairy Goats

goatface1The Dairy Goat project is designed to help youth develop to their fullest potential as they learn the care and management of a dairy animal. The dairy goat is an ideal youth project animal, as it allows young people to learn about dairy production with an animal that requires much less investment than the dairy cow.

The 4-H Dairy Goat project offers all aspects of care and management, plus an understanding of the workings of a living creature. Activities include public presentations, dairy goat quiz bowl, judging, fitting and showing, and dairy product identification, milk and milk quality, making ice cream, cheese, etc.

AUDIENCE: Youth 5 to 19 years of age.
