The EAGMA Goat Show for 2017 will be at the Shenandoah Valley Fiber Festival at the fairgrounds in Berryville, Virginia on September 22-24, 2017. There will be a show for white goats, colored goats and red card goats this year. There will also be fleece judging and an opportunity to buy beautiful mohair fleeces.
Fred Speck from Texas will be our judge this year. Dr. Speck is a 5th generation angora goat producer.
Red Card classes will again be held at the show this year. These classes are an opportunity to show animals that are not fully white, so are disqualified from the white show, but do not exhibit enough color to show well in the colored classes. See the full class description on the Goat Entry Form below.
The Mohair Fleece show process will be the same as 2016. Fleeces will be entered, judged (by Sharon Chestnutt) and sold (if for sale) in the SVFF fleece sale. Fleeces will be entered in the Arts and Crafts Building on Friday, September 22rd, 2017 from 10am to 2pm. All fleeces must go on the SVFF form (and pay their fee). Each fleece to be judged will also need the EAGMA Fleece ID form below (there is no additional fee from EAGMA). Fleeces will be judged Friday at 3pm in the same building. See the fleece show rules below.
Goat check in will be modified this year and a vet will be on the grounds to check animals from 7am to 9am Saturday. All animals must be unloaded by 9am Saturday and inspected by the show veterinarian. See the goat show rules below for more details.
