More about the Market Goat Contest

Did you know that there are over 100 goat breeds in the world, ranging in size from 20 pounds to well over 100 pounds, that more people in the world drink goat’s milk than cow’s milk, or that goat meat has a lower fat content than either lamb or beef and is eaten by over 80% of the world’s population? These shows afford youth an opportunity to learn to judge and select goats, feed, manage, and prepare them for exhibit. Many of our young exhibitors have their own goat herd. Record keeping is another important aspect of these projects, and a completed record book must be turned in before the show in order for the youngster to compete with his or her animal.
