Goats

Goats are very versatile animals, producing milk, fibre and meat, and the goat industry is well represented in the Meander Valley.

Different breeds of goats are farmed for specific purposes -

  • Angora goats produce fibre, called mohair
  • dairy goat breeds, such as Saanen, Toggenburg and Nubian, produce milk
  • Boer goats are bred for meat

Goats have been a popular part of the animal nursery at the Deloraine Show for many years, but at this year’s Deloraine Show there will be mohair fleece judging, with a trade display, and dairy goat judging.
