Dairy One provides a range of milk testing services for goat herds of all sizes. This includes owner sampler options, including goat circles, as well as providing technician services for herd milk testing.
Dairy One currently tests a number of goat circles throughout the Northeast and mid-Atlantic region. In addition to a testing program, we also offer an annual certification program and annual scale certification. Please contact us for more information.
If a goat herd tests with a Dairy One Technician, regular Dairy One service charges apply.
Pregnancy testing is also available for goats. More information can be found under the Animal Health Diagnostic laboratory section of this site.
