State Contacts For Starting a Grade A/B Goat Dairy Print E-mail

Deciding to turn a hobby goat herd into a working dairy can seem like a daunting task. On the other hand, by contacting the right people the job can become easier. The first place you should go is your state’s dairy division. They have the rules and regulations to live by as well as great advice on everything from equipment to marketing. Most importantly, they are there to help.

Each state’s rules and regulations are different, so making a pamphlet that would encompass all states’ requirements would be impossible. However, we have put together all the addresses and phone numbers of each state’s dairy division (plus outside countries where available) to get you started. Good Luck!
