2013 South Island Dairy Goats All Breed Show is almost here! It will be held on Saturday the 19th of January at the Christchurch Show Grounds Stable Block. (Drive in from the new 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.)

This is the only show held in Christchurch each year where five dairy goat breeds are judged separately (Saanen, Sable, Toggenburg, Alpine and Anglo-Nubian). So if you are wondering which breed may suit you, it is a great opportunity to have a good look at each breed.

There will be a shared lunch so please bring some food to share. There will also be raffles sold on the day ($2 each), along with silent auctions. Prizes are donated by our generous sponsors and members.

Goats to be penned by 9:30 am, and judging to start at 10:00 am.  It will hopefully finish at around 4:00 pm.

All welcome; with or without goats :) Spectators welcome; see you there! If you are coming to have a look, please do stay around as the breeders will be more relaxed to talk to after they have finished competing.
