    We have been thinnking of starting a commercial goat dairy and would like any and all advice or experiences. We are rather new to goat but have ran a regular dairy farm for years. It seems that there are more and more producers in the area so pick-up wouldn't be a problem. There are a couple of buildings that were orginally designed for emus that just set empty, plus a large minority population for the meat goats. Maybe we're just crazy?
