The aims of the Society are:

  • To circulate knowledge and general information upon goats.

  • To extend and encourage the keeping of goats, so as to increase the production and use of their products.

  • To improve the various breeds of goats, and especially to develop those qualities which are generally recognized and valued.

  • To safeguard against cruelty from whatever source.

  • In the furtherance of the foregoing objects but not further or otherwise, the Society shall have the power to further the well being of the goat and fulfil its role as the focal point for all goatkeeping activities in the United Kingdom, including close liaison with relevant Government departments.

Sue Prior

It is with great sadness that I have to announce the death of Sue Prior following a judging appointment at Stithians Show in Cornwall during July.

I know that the entire goat keeping world will wish to join me in sending deepest condolences to Sue’s partner, Dave Hughes, and to Sue’s family.

Sue had been a member of the British Goat Society for a great many years and had been a successful breeder of pure Toggenburg goats at one time. She was a highly popular and sort after licensed judge and undertook judging appointments throughout the United Kingdom. A full obituary will appear in the Monthly Journal in due course.

The funeral is likely to be held during August and further details will be posted on the website as soon as we know.
