    Where did the Goat Dairy Library go? I came to this site specifically to look at those resources. . .

  • Paula says:

    I’ve been trying to locate where to sign up for the October University session. If there is a goat library — was/is there a cow library also? Please help.

      Hello Paula,

      You can register by clicking the link to our Raw Milk University page located directly on the homepage. You will find the October link at the bottom of the Raw Milk University page. As of right now, we do not have a cow library. I hope this helps. Thank you.

    Could someone tell me where the Goat Dairy Library has gone? I keep getting a page that says: Not Found

    The requested URL /index.html was not found on this server.

    Additionally, a 404 Not Found error was encountered while trying to use an ErrorDocument to handle the request.

    Thank you for your time.

      We have removed the goat library. We will be replacing it at a later date. Please check back for updates.
