Our goal is to invite goat producers who would like to join the SVMGA in consignment sales (one is planned for November, but no date has been set yet).

We need to have truckloads of goats for the buyer(s), but even with all members of the local association selling, we probably are not able at this time of year to gather the 100 – 200 goats needed for a complete sale.

So, we’d like to have growers from all over VA, NC and other states attend our Open House and learn about our sales, etc.  We also want goat producers to view our great facility with scales and pens.

Open House admission is free, but we would like people to call to say they are coming.  An extension group is providing concessions, such as hamburgers, hot dogs, desserts, etc. and we would like to know how many are planning to attend.

We hope to see you there.
