Results Are In!!!

The Kinder Goat Breeders Association is excited to announce the results of our very first online show! We had many exceptional Kinder goats entered in the show, and are extremely grateful to our judge, Kim Shunney, for sharing her wealth of knowledge and experience by taking the time to write editorials on each of her choices.

Online shows are not sanctioned by the KGBA for a number of reasons – first and foremost being that it is extremely difficult to judge a goat without seeing them move or being able to put your hands on them. A wonderful goat can place poorly in a class due to the angle of a photo or poor lighting. Major faults in another goat may not be as apparent in pictures. For this reason, online show results should always be taken for what they are – a good learning opportunity based on the very specific images that have been submitted, not the last word on any goat’s quality or value.

We thank those who submitted entries for making our first online show such a great success… it is an outstanding group of goats!

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 September 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

If you would like to volunteer or nominate someone else for a position, please contact us via email at prior to August 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!
