Anyone raising or interested in raising meat goats will find good information at the Middle Georgia Goat Producers meeting Aug. 5 in Montezuma.
Goats produce more income than more recognizable Georgia farm products, including oats, grapes and strawberries, according to the University of Georgia Extension Service.
But the fledgling meat-goat industry is just getting organized. The new MGGP group is trying to help the business, which mainly attracts people with small farms.
Morning Meeting in Montezuma
The Montezuma meeting will be at the Ladies Clubhouse across the tracks from Railroad Street. It will begin at 9 a.m. and end by noon.
To learn more about it, call Joe Oaks at (912) 472-7847 during the day or Bill Haas at (912) 987-1789 after 7 p.m.
