This is a bit of a pre-emptive strike for those who may come to visit the Dairy Goat Society of Australia’s stand at the Ballarat Rural Lifestyle Expo.
As a Ballarat local, and probably the DGSA member most closely located to the Expo venue at the Showgrounds, I consider it my duty to attend this event and provide information on dairy goats in general, with an emphasis on the Anglo Nubian breed.
Our publicity officer and Victorian branch president will also be attending, and these two ladies put in a lot of work all over the state when it comes to promoting dairy goats.
Unfortunately due to health regulations I can’t offer to the public any samples of the goat milk edibles I produce, but I am happy to talk about all the yum things that are possible with goat milk. I will be doing two milking demonstrations at 10am and 2pm with my pair of 3yo half sisters Meredith and Sienna. There will also be goat milk soap available for sale.
So come and say hello, or if you are reading this after meeting me at the Expo, welcome to the world of The Barefoot Cook. There are a range of recipes and informative posts on here about keeping goats and using milk.
