Well, I've been exited for weeks to go to our county fair. This was because I'm interested in purchasing some dairy goats in the near future and have found very little info on the net regarding farms/dealers in this area. Figured that of course I'd meet some "goat people" at the fair- and maybe even be able to try some fresh goat's milk (which is no where to be found around here). I wanted someone in this area to be able to give me some good tips and point me in the direction of some breeders. I have found one breeder in this area on the net, but they ask upwards of $600 for their goats and I'm just not looking for something so fancy-I'd like to find a couple good, disease free milkers for around $100 each. Maybe I'm being unrealistic. Anyway, at the fair, I headed first for the dairy barn- but to my dismay it was all cows. And all the info they had about dairy and dairy foods were based on cows milk. HELLO??? So I headed for the sheep and swine barn in which I found 4 goats- looked like nubians. They were sweet and gentle, but there was no information about them to be found anywhere- not even a breed or farm name? I waited around, hoping their owner would show up- but got frustrated after 45 minutes and left. AHHH! Where are all the goats? Perhaps there just aren't any to be found in Chemung county, NY. Needless to say, I left rather discouraged. Maybe I'll have more luck at the state fair in a few weeks, then again maybe not- I don't remember there being a lot regarding goats there in the previous years.
