The Boer Goat show will be starting from 9am on Saturday 3rd November 2018.

Boer Goat Australia (BGA) is excited to team up with the Whittlesea Agricultural Society in organising BGA’s inaugural boer goat show to be held on Saturday 3rd November, as a part of the 2018 Whittlesea Show. Boer goat breeder Joe D’Andrea of Bailieston Boers, Nagambie, Victoria says this will be the first show in Victoria dedicated to exhibiting animals from all aspects of the boer goat industry, with all varieties of boer goats on display, not just stud animals. The 2018 Whittlesea Show will exhibit classes for red, black, painted (patches of different colours) and standard boers (white with a red head), as well as classes for commercial non-registered goats judged on their meat potential and a junior class for young farmers.

Come in, see some amazing animals and source information from experienced breeders about boer goat meat and breeding.

Berwyn Squire at Agriculture Victoria will also be there to answer any questions about goat health, welfare and NLIS tagging.

There will also be an opportunity to get hands on with some goats at the “Kids Corner” (pun intended).
