MADISON, WI (WTAQ) - Wisconsin dairy goat farmers can learn more next month about improving the quality of their products.  

A conference on the subject will be held February 7th and 8th at UW-Platteville.  

State agriculture officials say the meeting will let dairy goat farmers share ideas about selecting goats -- as well as feeding and providing health care for the animals.  

Wisconsin had the nation's largest number of dairy goats in 2012, around 46,000. Over a dozen processors in the Badger State use goat milk for making cheese.
