Manitoba Goat Association

Working together locally, provincially, nationally and internationally, the Manitoba Goat Association (MGA) strives to encourage, promote and develop long-term rewarding experiences with goats in Manitoba.
The Manitoba Goat Association welcomes all persons interested in goats regardless of the reason for ownership. Even if you do not own a goat; a desire to learn about, promote and care for these adaptable, friendly, multi-purpose animals, the Manitoba Goat Association can be a valuable resource for you.
