Welcome to the Dakota Goat Association.

The DGA is an association for anyone who is interested in any type of goat including dairy, meat, fiber, fainting or pets. Through the DGA, you'll be able to meet others with the same interests and concerns. We're holding or assisting with a variety of events ranging from basic education to performance programs.


Every two months you'll receive a newsletter packed full of information directly relating to keeping goats on the Northern Plains. It includes stories from breeder on how they got started and maintain their operations, articles on disease, recipes, and information about events.


Please note that we're based in North Dakota and most activities will be taking place here, although we starting to provide programs in South Dakota as well.



DGA activities provide you opportunities to:
  • Meet other goat people
  • Learn about goats or goat products
  • Share ideas
  • Ask questions

We hope you'll participate!
