In East Java, goat milk has not been fully utilized due to the lack of milk processing equipment at farm level. As a result, almost all milk produced has been for the consumption of the kids. In this paper, Anam et al. examine the effect of introducing milk pasteurization, simple cup-sealer equipment and training of Etawah crossbred goat farmers on the production of pasteurized goat milk in East Java. Farmers also received capacity building to produce dairy products from the goat milk. The research involved 25 farmers in Ngambe district, with a total of 70 heads of Etawah crossbred goats. The findings showed that all participants were able to use the milk pasteurization equipment and the cup sealer, but only 25 per cent of participants could make dairy products. After training, however, the goat farmers were capable of making dairy products from the goat milk, which enabled them to create new businesses.
