ANGORA GOAT CUP

A champion goat, colored or white, will be chosen for this award. This cup is a perennial trophy donated by the Black Sheep Newsletter.

*ATTENTION ANGORA GOAT BREEDERS

We offer a special Fleece and Conformation Yearling Class: yearling goat either sex, white or colored, not to be shown in any other class. These goats will first be shown in full fleece and then sheared. The goats and their fleeces will then be judged again. For many years we have wondered what body faults hide under a fleece and how fleece judging varies on and off the goat. This class will attempt to answer these questions.

Not everyone will be able to shear their own goats so we are looking for shearers ready to help. Shearing will be $10 per goat: pay the shearer directly.
