The New York State Dairy Goat Breeders Association Inc. was founded May 12, 1962 . 

The first meeting was organized by then president Ed Dochniak at the Hotel Oneida in Oneida, N.Y.

The original purpose of those first members and organizers isn't far from our purpose today.

We are still a family oriented, non-profit organization whose members work together to promote dairy goats and their products. This includes dairy goat health, management, and husbandry, the production of milk, cheese, and soap as well as the sharing of recipes that use goat products. We encourage the promotion of dairy goats through exhibition and showmanship, public awareness, and education. The NYSDGBA also promotes the marketing of quality animals and products as well as the continued improvement of milk production and animal conformation in each of the recognized breeds.

As a club we offer a bi-monthly newsletter and potluck gatherings held at different locations throughout the state.Our meetings are filled with educational speakers, the planning of future events such as fund raisers, an annual double ring show held in June, the New York State Fair along with the sponsorship of a showring at New York's well know Super Buck Extravaganza which is held annually in May. Members also enjoy and benefit from the sharing of experiences and ideas of others.

We want to thank you for visiting our website and hope you'll find it educational and enjoyable. Please join us at our next meeting!
