Virtual Goat Day – Friday January 8, 2021 – 11:30am to 4:00pm Eastern Standard Time

Goat Day is a producer led annual event, targeted to Goat producers – both those that produce Milk,  and Meat (to date there has not been an emphasis on hair production).  The purpose of Goat Day is to provide an opportunity for Goat producers to meet and be educated on the latest technology; discuss pertinent marketing issues; learn about health/nutrition topics, and much more; plus, interact and exchange ideas with fellow Goat farmers.

There are two key objectives that the organizing committee strives to achieve daily.  The information shared will be linked “back to the animal”.  Organizers hope that producers can implement at least two ideas when they return to their operations.
