The Iowa Dairy Goat industry is booming.  Read the February 2015 Associated Press article “Goat farmers, producers handle increased demand for dairy.

From IDGA Board Member and Past President Butch Sowers:

We as the Iowa Dairy Goat Association are a busy lot. We as individual Dairy Goat producers are a busy lot. Never before have we had opportunities that we have before us now. Take advantage of the trends, promote your animals, keep records, improve your milk production and getyourself into that level of integrity where you should be. My friends, our Dairy Goats have propelled themselves into the limelight. Like never before the Dairy Goats and their products are COOL, they are IN, they are filling the niche market.  Not only are all the products associated with our Dairy Goats sought after, but we’re seeing goats in lots and lots of commercials. GOATS ARE COOL.
