Dairy goat documentary showcases National Goat Producers
Helena Bowen loves goats, and that love inspired her to make a documentary all about these social dairy animals. Bowen will be traveling throughout the US collecting footage, and the project will culminate at the American Dairy Goat Association National Show in Colorado in July:
“The main goal is to promote goats. Obviously goats are super misrepresented in pop culture. They are thought of as stupid and lazy. Tons of people have them in America. They are loving and gentle, and an important part of the industry. I want to especially emphasize that goat's milk is being used for people who are lactose intolerant. I want to promote the goat for what it is,” Bowen said.
One of the aspects she will be covering will be the show side of the industry. “I want to educate people about the goat showing world and the huge community of people who go around the country showing their goats. I will talk about the American Dairy Goat Association and how it connects with the goats,” she said.
