What is a Goat 4H Project?

There are four different goat projects within the 4H program, dairy, meat, pygmy and pack goat (sometimes called utility or working goat depending on your county or program). It is a project where you train a goat and learn to work together. You will develop life skills of decision-making capabilities, public speaking skills, integrity, and sportsmanship. As well as learn proper care, health management, and responsibilities of animal ownership. You will keep a record book to help set goals, see progress, learn skills, track costs, and community involvement. No matter what goat project you choose, you will need supplies and gear to prepare for the shows. Here at, we know the importance of goat ownership, raising, training, and gear. We have the resources and tools to help you have a successful project.
