We are happy to announce that our May 22, 2021 show is moving forward as planned! We have had to make a few adjustments and we will bring those to light in the very near future. Please visit our "Show" tab to learn more.
We put on an annual ADGA Sactioned Dairy Goat show at the SW Washington Fairgrounds in Chehalis, WA.
Our members support various Youth and Agriculture related activities during the year. We financially support the Goat divisions of the Spring Youth Fair and SW Washington Fair’s 4-H Goat show. 4-H workshops for Showmanship and Judging are held to help encourage new goat projects.
We also support meat goat projects and donate money towards the 4-H market sale.
Adult members supply animals for various displays supporting Agriculture when requested. We contribute to the success of the SW Washington Fair by decorating the Barn area with educational displays as well as supplying the volunteer help to run a successful show. Additionally our members are always happy to answer questions for new goat owners.
