This year, the expo will be held in North Platte, NE at the Lincoln County Fairgrounds. There are several changes this year so please watch the web site for updates.


The goal of our expo is not only to educate you on the subject of goats, but also to help you form a network of other producers to help you along the way. Whether you're brand new to the business, or a more seasoned member, there is something for everyone!


Saturday the 5th, starting at 7:00 and running till 10:00 we will be checking in the goats. Seminar registration will run from 9:00 to 10:00 am, with the seminar starting at 10:00 am and lasting until 5:00 pm. With a lunch break from 12-1 pm.  The afternoon expo will break into 2 sessions (advanced & Goat 101).

The speakers that come to teach us travel long distances in hope of enlightening us and your support is appreciated. Dr. Fred Homeyer will be speaking this year.


On Sunday, the show will begin at 9:00 am with the sale following.

We will also hold a best dressed goat at the show.
