Providing a shelter for dairy goats is an essential aspect of keeping them comfortable and safe. Ideally facilities for dairy goats have plenty of space for the goats to be social, hay and feed storage, a water source, manger, a clean milking stand area, and doors big enough to move easily in and out with materials and multiple goats. Goats are notorious for using everything at their disposal to break through fences and structures, so be sure your barn/shed/garage/coop is sturdy.
