 About the AGBA

The Alberta Goat Breeders Association (AGBA) was registered as a non-profit society on February 14, 1970 by a small group of goat breeders who wished to have an official club to serve their interests.

In 2012 the Board of Directors with the support of the membership undertook an ambitious plan to further the goals and ambitions of the Alberta Goat industry, recognizing that the industry had grown beyond the original mandate  to include producers of all types of goats: dairy, meat and fibre. The mandate of the AGBA changed to acknowledge the ever increasing workload of the volunteer board to have the industry recognized as a whole to government, the Alberta agricultural industry and the public at large.

As of May 2012 there are 80 members from across Alberta. A board of ten directors implements the objectives of the association and members take part in an annual general meeting. AGBA activities include seminars, shows, displays, demonstrations, and information services with a primary focus on the AGBA Convention and Production Sale held in the Fall.

AGBA news and other goat related articles and information are available in the AGBA's official monthly communication e-newsletter "Goat Droppings" and in the bimonthly magazine "GoatKeeper", as well as on this site.

The AGBA works closely with Alberta Agriculture and Food and the Diversified Livestock Fund of Alberta to further the goat industry. As well, the AGBA is a voting member of the Canadian National Goat Federation and a supporting member of the Alberta Farm Animal Care and the International Goat Association.
