Hay Dairies Goat Farm - WW

Kids feeding the kids

Hay Dairies is the only goat farm in Singapore. It has 1,000 goats of mixed breed, producing milk for sale. The farm uses machines to milk, pasteurise, homogenise and bottle the goat milk before selling it directly to consumers.

You should be prepared for the unpleasant smell. hehehe.......

Feed the billy goats , some are huge!

Goat's milk is an alternative to those who are allergic to cow's milk. Fortunately I'm not allergic to cow's milk, I don't like the taste of goat's milk. blek.....

The goat is a useful animal though. Besides eating its meat and drinking its milk, its milk can be made into cheese, beauty cream, soap, lotion etc. Their hides can be made into cashmere shawls, angora coats, leather, rug etc.

The milking mother goats are separated from the bachelor goats and kids. awwww..........
