Welcome to the British Columbia Goat Association
The BCGA was founded over a hundred years ago in 1917
To increase public awareness of the value of goats and goat producers, disseminate information about breeds of goats and their care, and encourage young people with their involvement with goats and 4-H clubs.
Education is key for progressive goat breeders
Did you know Canada has a Code of Practice for the care of goats? It covers everything from, housing, feeding, management, processing, livestock markets and transportation!
Find the Code here!
The code is currently under revision with the updated version to be released sometime in the Fall of 2012. During Aug-Nov of 2020 the goat industry is requested to provide input. Have your say!
