This project produced the publication Dairy Goats: a practical handbook as an industry resource designed to build industry capacity and capability particularly in the commercial goat milk production sector. The handbook addresses critical information needed for those moving into dairy goat production and for existing enterprises and farm workers.
This publication supports relevant units of competency from the national industry training package and may be used in the future as a basis to develop industry accredited short courses and online learning modules to assist further adoption and extension in industry best practice. It builds on the previous industry resources developed by NSW DPI and Meat and Livestock Australia (MLA), with linkage and alignment where appropriate. The resource has a national focus and includes case studies representing different climatic zones and enterprise styles.
