The National Goat Expo will showcase all breeds of goats including Dairy, Fiber and Meat. Goats will be on display in the barns as well as the show rings.
The dates for the 2013 Expo are September 26-30, 2013 at the Mclean County Fairgrounds in Bloomington, Illinois. There will be 5 show rings going on each day. Several breeds will hold a sanctioned event during this event. To find out if your breed is already involved, check the schedule. To request a show for a specific breed not scheduled, contact NGE president Jennifer Parrish.
This event will include seminars and workshops on everything goat and goat related including health, nutrition, reproduction, pasture management, product marketability and more. View the schedule for the full workshop and seminar list.
