We are the Canterbury Dairy Goat Breeders Association, located in Canterbury, New Zealand. We are the trusted source for dairy goats in the South Island. Please browse our Goats for Sale page if you are looking to buy a good dairy goat.
We cannot emphasise strongly enough the importance of getting disease-free dairy goats with good conformation from responsible breeders. It will save you a lot of hassles and money in the long run, and we mean A LOT.
A good dairy goat will give you a lot of pleasure for years to come. You will never regret buying a quality goat, but you WILL regret buying a “dud” goat, however cheaply you got it.
Our motto is ‘Promote the Goat‘, and our aim is to encourage the breeding of dairy goats to the highest standard. There are 5 recognised dairy breeds in New Zealand: the Saanen, the Toggenburg, the British Alpine, the Anglo-Nubian, and the Sable.
Come watch the Courtenay A&P Show this Saturday, and the annual Club Show next Saturday
Courtenay A&P Show is on the 23rd of November 2013. The dairy goat judging will start at 10 am. The Grand Parade will be at 1:30 pm. Those who are showing there will be our club members, so please feel free to come and have a chat with us. For directions, click here.
Our 2013 Club Show is on the 30th of November 2013. This year, we are starting early at 9 am sharp, because the judge from the North Island has to catch the flight home in mid-afternoon. As usual, there will be raffles and shared lunch. Please bring any new/unused items to donate to the raffle if you have any.
There will be classes for unregistered goats so it’s a great opportunity to have your unregistered goats looked at by the judge and other veteran goat keepers. Fun classes such as the pet class and fancy dress will be judged in the afternoon after the formal judging is over.
It will be held at the Canterbury A&P Showgrounds in the stable block. To get there, drive in from the Curletts Road Entrance and keep on driving right, drive past the Livestock Pavilion building on your left, then you should be able to see the Stable Block beyond it. Please contact us for the show schedule or more detailed directions. Entries close on Tuesday the 26th of November 2013. Non-members are also eligible to enter.
