Welcome to the Cornwall Goatkeepers Association
Cornwall Goatkeepers Association (CGA) was started in 1963 and is open to all goatkeepers, past, present and future.
The purpose of the club is to provide support to Cornwall's many goat owners and to organise goat shows and classes at our local agricultural shows. Our current schedule includes five shows
CGA Spring Show in May
Royal Cornwall Show in June
The Kernow Show - held back to back with the Royal Cornwall Show in Wadebridge
Stithians Show in July
The CGA Male and Youngstock with Pygmy Autumn show in August/September
The Cornwall Goatkeepers Association is affiliated with the British Goat Society. This allows us to run BGS Recognised shows where class winners can achieve points towards BGS Championship, Challenge Certificates and Milking awards.
We also attend a number of events throughout the county taking along a variety of goats to promote responsible ownership and to answer the many questions asked about goats.
The shows and promotion events give us the opportunity to get together with other like minded people to talk all things "goaty" and to be available to support prospective goat owners.
We rely on the extensive commitment of our volunteers and most particularly the annual membership fees.
The Cornwall Goatkeepers Association has a long history and a valuable place in the rural life of Cornwall, so please become a member and support us.
