Calling All Members!!!

Have you ever considered running for a position on the KGBA board? If so, now is the time!

The KGBA nominating committee is currently accepting volunteers and recommendations for the annual election.  Any person holding an individual membership effective as of March 1st is eligible to be a candidate or recommend another for a position.


Thinking about running? Please consider your decision carefully - becoming a board member is a wonderful way to help our Association grow and improve and we want all the help we can get, but it takes time and commitment to make things happen! 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.

Board members attend monthly board meetings via 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 at www.kindergoatbreeders.com/bylaws.html

If you would like to volunteer or nominate someone else for a position, please contact us via email at frankenmonk@gmail.com prior to September 20th. Please consider submitting a half-page bio (to be included with ballots) when you express your interest in becoming a candidate. 

We look forward to hearing from you!

Sanctioned Kinder Show This November!

The North Carolina Pygmy Goat Club would like to invite you to the Festival of Kinders show at The Windmill
Lakes Event Center in Liberty, NC on November 11, 2017. We are excited to offer KGBA Sanctioned classes
for those that would like to participate. We welcome spectators as well as exhibitors to join with us in the
show. Pens will be provided for a small fee.

This is an exciting opportunity to show your goats under 3 different judges in 3 separate sanctioned shows. We hope that you will consider attending this year's show with your Kinder goats. Shows are a wonderful way to meet other breeders, market your goats and make great memories. This year the KGBA is also offering some exciting new incentives - premiums of $100 to Grand Champion and $50 to Reserve Grand Champion winners at all sanctioned Kinder shows. 

Have a question or concern? Please don't hesitate to contact Kim Shunney for more information.

The show bill for all three shows can be found at the link below:

It's Show Time!

The Missouri State Fair has one of the few shows currently sanctioned by the Kinder Goat Breeders Association. It took years of hard work and dedication to make this show a reality, and it has become the longest running annual Kinder show in the world. Unfortunately, we now risk losing this show for lack of participation. 

If you have the time and ability, we ask that you consider attending this year's show with your Kinder goats. Shows are a wonderful way to meet other breeders, market your goats and make great memories. This year the KGBA is also offering some exciting new incentives - premiums of $100 to Grand Champion and $50 to Reserve Grand Champion winners at all sanctioned Kinder shows. 
 
At this point, entries for all classes will be considered late and incur an additional late fee, but in order to encourage more entries the KGBA is also offering to reimburse breeders for any late entry fees, and assist our members in any other ways that we can. Have a question or concern? Please don't hesitate to contact Leah Rennick, Lisa LaRose or myself. 

Late entries will only be accepted until the end of this month, so please register quickly if you would like to help us make this show a success. 

Below are links to the show bill and entry forms for the MO State Fair. The show will take place on Saturday, August 19th and Sunday, August 20th. Goats must be at the fair grounds on Friday evening. 

Thank you and good luck!
Sue Beck
KGBA President
