Langston University Goat Milk Cheesemaking Workshop
Langston University’s annual goat milk cheesemaking workshop takes place on Friday April 27, 2018 (the day before the annual goat field day).
Dr. Steve Zeng, Professor and Dairy Product Specialist in the American Institute for Goat Research at Langston University, will be the host/instructor for this workshop. He has instructed cheese workshops in many states as well as internationally. He has also judged cheeses for the World, the United States, the American Cheese Society and the American Dairy Goat Association cheese championships/contests since 2007.
He will share his rich background, personal experience and masterful skills in small-scale cheese manufacture, particularly goat milk cheeses. He plans to demonstrate basic principles and practical skills of making soft and surface mold cheeses using Langston’s own Grade A goat milk. Milk quality, cheesemaking facility, cheese sensory evaluation and federal safety requirements will also be discussed.
This one-day hands-on workshop will be held in the pilot creamery at Langston University. There is a registration fee of $60.00/person, which includes continental breakfast, break snacks, and lunch consisting of goat meat BBQs, sausages, jerky, goat milk ice cream and cheeses, etc.
