Dairy Goats

We are developing a herd of fine Registered Alpine and Toggenburg Dairy Goats. Goats milk, if produced by a well cared-for animal is rich and creamy, has a wonderful flavor, and is well suited to making a variety of cheeses. We love our dairy goats and enjoy the delicious milk they provide for us daily.

Our Milking Machine in Operation
After the goat's teats have been washed, dried, and stripped, the milk is harvested hygienically into a stainless bucket suspended from the scale. Each goat's production is instantly recorded every milking. After milking the machine's cabinet is closed for cleanliness, and the scale is swung out of the way. The bucket never touches the ground in the barn.
