Kids for Kids
This is an event that will provide AGA and our industry with an opportunity to help others and raise public awareness of the goat industry.
Each willing producer will donate the proceeds from one 2022 born kid to
the childrens’ charity.

2026 International Goat Association Conference Bid- Withdrawn
It is with great regret that we must inform you that the Alberta Goat Association will no longer be submitting a bid to host the International Conference on Goats (ICG) in 2026. This was a difficult decision for our committee. Still, we felt that this was the best course of action given the current circumstances.
Goat Producer Questionnaire
Lameness in goats can be a significant health and economic issue in some herds. Your opinion is important to the goat industry to help gather baseline industry information to determine whether lameness and in particular footrot is a significant health issue in Alberta goat herds. The results of this survey will determine future directions in research in goats, including whether Alberta research dollars should be invested in Canada in developing an effective footrot vaccine for goats. The Alberta Goat Producers would appreciate it if you would complete this survey that is funded by RDAR (Results Driven Agriculture Research). This survey is voluntary, and your responses will be kept confidential. For completing the survey your name will be entered into a producer lottery for 2 cash prizes of $500 and we will send you a copy of the final results of the survey.
Please complete the survey through this web link
or complete the survey fillable pdf form on the AGP website and return it by email to firstname.lastname@example.org. Closing date for the survey is January 15, 2022. If you have any questions about this survey, please contact Dr. Joyce Van Donkersgoed at email@example.com.
As COVID-19 continues to unfold the Board of the AGA would like our members to know that we are committed to providing as much information as possible to reduce any potential impact on producers.
The AGA office phone, as always, is available at 403-443-2874 at any time.
We will try as much as possible to keep in contact with other Alberta agriculture industry stakeholders to assist in working together to manage any potential disruption.
For current local information contact the public health unit in your community or go to Alberta Health Services online.
