Establishing a Dairy Operation
There are several items you will need to consider for developing a dairy goat operation. Remember, if you cannot get your operation to work on paper, you will not get it to work in actuality. Take the necessary time to plan to set up your dairy. It is much more economical to set up properly the first time than to remodel and spend money twice.
