Welcome to the Dairy Goat Society of South Australia

We are a small but highly active branch of the Dairy Goat Society of Australia, (the National body, established in 1935 and recognised internationally) with a clear goal:

   To breed healthy dairy goats, and pass on our knowledge and experience of these wonderful, and very often misunderstood animals...

Keeping dairy goats is a very rewarding experience and your goats will repay you with milk and plenty of affection and enjoyment.
We hope you enjoy your time at our website. To the left you will find the navigation bar, with links to members' pages, information about dairy goat breeds and their care, links to useful websites, free graphics for your own use and all the latest events in the Society and the show ring.
