Seventh Goat-a-Rama set April 5

University of Georgia

The seventh edition of the annual Goat-a-Rama near Tennille, Ga., promises to be the biggest yet. And for people who raise goats in Georgia and throughout the Southeast, the April 5 event is already the biggest around.

For the first time, this year's Goat-a-Rama will include a brood-stock auction. Full-blooded and high-percentage goats of brood-stock quality can be entered in this sale.

As always, spaces will be provided, for a small fee, for private-treaty goat sales. Among other things, the Goat-a-Rama will feature:

  • Educational seminars and clinics on grooming and showing techniques, parasite identification and more.
  • Demonstrations by industry experts on cooking, goat milking, hoof trimming and more.
  • Goat equipment exhibits and sales, and feed and forage displays.
Admission is free, and door prizes will be given. Visitors may also have a chance to win a registered Boer buck or one of two registered Boer does. And goat barbecue will be available for lunch.

For more information, e-mail helen@goat-a-rama.com. Or call Helen Batten at (478) 552-1471 or Sidney Law at (478) 552-2011.
