Dairy Production

Goats for milk production include primarily Alpine, Lamancha, Nubian, Oberhasli, Saanen and Toggenburg goats.

Delicious ~ Easily Digested ~ Healthy

Goat milk is used for the production of a variety of cheeses, yogurt, butter, ice cream and other dairy products.

Goat cheese has twice the protein, one-third fewer calories and half the fat and cholesterol of regular cream cheese. Plus goat milk fat globules are smaller than those of cow milk, making the cheese more digestible for many people who have milk-related intolerance.

Substantial amounts of goat’s milk products are imported yearly. The market potential for Canadian producers is phenomenal!
