Why Learn About Dairy Goat Business Opportunities?

People who raise dairy goats each have their own reasons. Only you can decide what draws you into raising dairy goats, but here are some common reasons:

  • To have their own source of dairy products and know what went into them
  • You enjoy raising goats and spending time with them
  • Because goats are very personable animals and engage well with people 
  • Because you have a cow milk allergy but aren’t allergic to goat’s milk 
  • Because goats are smaller than cows and easier for a new livestock owner to handle
  • It’s a fantastic way to teach children responsibility 
  • It promotes critical thinking as you face and address issues with your goats
  • Because goat owners love a good challenge and goats offer that, in abundance

We should mention making a little money on the side. We include this for completeness and it’s true that dairy goat owners can enjoy a little pocket money by selling products made from goat milk, (and perhaps even live animals). But fair warning – if this is your main reason, then we’d suggest other easier and less messy hobbies! Few dairy goat owners turn this into a full business that will pay the bills.
