Welcome to our blog. Check back often for official news and announcements from the KGBA and articles on various topics of Kinder goat care, raising, breeding, showing and more!
The KGBA Evaluation Program is scheduling our trips for this year!
We have a number of interested herds, but they are a bit scattered around the country. We are hoping to rustle up more interest and coordinate a few concentrated areas to send our amazing Evaluator Lisa Lamm to this year! She will also be at the TN, OH and MO shows!
If you’ve considered this program in the past, or are looking for a great way to get your herd a hands-on assessment, now is your chance. If you are already on the list, and know of more people in your area that may help us to schedule a route to your region, let us know!
Please email Ashley Kennedy at firstname.lastname@example.org

It’s that time of year again! The KGBA nominating committee is currently accepting nominees for our annual election. Any person holding a membership as of March 1st is eligible to be a candidate or recommend another for a position. Board members attend monthly board meetings via video or conference call, take part in various committees and work to promote the Kinder goat in accordance to our bylaws. Specific descriptions of each position can be found HERE. Directors serve without compensation. The elected term is 1-3 years, with directors spending an average of 5-10 hours a month managing the affairs of the association. If you would like to volunteer or nominate someone else for a position, please contact us via email at email@example.com. Please include a brief introduction of yourself and why you would like to be on the board (it will be included with ballots).
We look forward to hearing from you!
