Goat projects of many kinds are available to New York youth ages 5-19. Youth can choose to work on projects featuring dairy goats, meat goats, or fiber goats. They can also do working goat projects, learning how to drive or use goats as pack animals. Goats can be multi-use and fun for the whole family! Printable record books are available for each specific goat project.
Depending on the project chosen, the time and facilities investment can vary. A meat goat project lasts one season, while a dairy goat or breeding project may last many years and require investment in appropriate year-round facilities for your goat. There are many resources below to help you choose the right project and type of goat for you and your family.
