Goat Study Tour 2012
At the end of August I travelled to the UK along with almost 30 members of the Irish Goat Producers Association for a two-day goat study tour. It really was a superb couple of days with visits to five elite producers of milk, meat and breeding stock. Not only was it an excellent learning experience but it gave those involved in the Irish goat industry a rare opportunity to meet socially and discuss all aspects of goat production. I also must say thanks to Bernie Whyte of the IGPA and Christine Ball of Goat Genetics for all their work in organising the trip. I thoroughly enjoyed the trip and really look forward to doing it again in the near future. You can read my full report here.
