It’s all go for GoatFest

IT’S all go for GoatFest this Sunday at the Longford Showgrounds, which brings together goats and goat breeders.

The committee confirmed that the popular event, which is a great, fun day for the whole family, will go ahead despite COVID challenges.

The event brings together goats and goat breeders from the four recognised breed groups.

Dairy, Boer, Angora and Miniature goats will all be on display, along with a range of goat products, husbandry information and demonstrations.

“We’re all about educating the public and showcasing the versatility of goats,” said GoatFest committee chairman Steven Baldock.
“We’ll be changing the way we do a few things in light of the current Covid situation, but the spirit of the event remains the same.”

Entry is by donation, which goes towards the ongoing running of GoatFest and other goat-related events including the All Breeds Summer Show held at Deloraine in February.

“The public have supported this event for over a decade now, and we wanted to make sure we could give the locals something to look forward to this year, when so many agricultural events have been forced to cancel,” Mr Baldock said.
