Message from the Chair:

On behalf of the National Goat Consortium planning committee, it is a pleasure to announce the third National Goat Conference. This conference will be held at Tuskegee University in Tuskegee, Alabama on September 16th -18th, 2018. The conference was first held at Florida A&M University in 2010 and North Carolina A&T University in 2013. Both events had attendance well over 400 participants. Building on previous successes of the National Goat Conference we will continue to provide the following:

  • Create a forum to share research-based educational information on goat production, management, herd health and marketing to producers, agricultural professionals, and students.
  • Provide governmental agencies an opportunity to tell you what role they can play to support the U.S. goat industry (i.e., regulatory and marketing issues).
  • Encourage conference attendees to share with one another what they have learned from their experiences with other producers, agricultural professionals and educators from various communities throughout the United States and the world.
  • Improve the linkages between private entities, community-based organizations, land grant institutions and state and federal agencies to enhance the viability and sustainability of the goat industry in the U.S.

Who Should Attend this Conference?

Producers (beginners and advanced), students, agricultural professionals, supportive organizations and other interested parties.

Conference Topics:  

Herd health management, nutrition and pasture management, reproduction , biotechnology & marketing and processing and genetics and breeding.
