Elizabeth gave two presentations: one called “How to Milk a Goat, Make Raw Milk Cheese, and Stay Out of Jail,” and one entitled “Herbal Remedies for Goat Ailments.” She also conducted a goat milking demonstration for children. We estimate that 100 kids–the two-legged kind–attended and took their turn at milking a goat. It’s great to see the look of wonder on their faces when they realize that milk is coming out of the goat, and they made it happen! Many thanks to Sunrise Farms, who provided two beautiful and very patient goats for the presentations. Email us if you’d like a copy of the slides–or better yet, attend the presentations in person at the upcoming MENF in West Bend, Wisconsin!
