USAgNet - 10/27/2010

The American Goat Federation, the first-ever national organization devoted to the entire goat industry, announces its incorporation. The purpose of the AGF will be to build and define the U.S. goat industry on a unified front to work on issues facing the whole industry.

"The AGF will strive to promote and facilitate the development of all segments of the goat industry, including dairy, meat and fiber by encouraging sound public policy, enhancing production and marketing of goat products and promoting research beneficial to member organizations and all producers," explains Tom Boyer, AGF president and Utah sheep and goat producer.

Currently, the organization is completing membership development guidelines and seeks to actively represent the interests of more than 100 organizations and thousands of producers engaged in the sustainable production and marketing of goat milk, meat, fiber and grazing services across the United States.

Founding memberships are available through Dec. 31, 2010, and are open to individuals and organizations. The U.S. Department of Agriculture has declared goat production one of the fastest growing segments of the livestock industry.
