Enterprise Budget: Dairy Goats

Michael Duffy, Jodi Calvert
Interest in dairy goat production has been growing recently for a variety of reasons. Dairy goats are less costly to buy and feed for someone starting in the dairy business. The average dairy cow in Iowa produces 65 pounds of milk a day with some top-performing cows producing up to 150 pounds. Cows also eat 50 pounds a day. On the other hand, dairy goats eat 6 pounds a day and produce 4-7 pounds of milk. The demand for goat cheese and products has increased because of the added health benefits and alternative offerings for people with allergies to regular milk. Before starting your goat enterprise, consider your labor, physical, and management resources.
