Goat owners! Sign up today for one of Maine’s premiere events for goat owners coming in May.

The Maine Goat School™ offers critical goat-care information on:

  • hoof trimming

  • worming
  • kidding
  • giving shots

What Else to Expect
Hosted and facilitated by Ken and Janice Spaulding, who have been raising goats for about 20 years, the two-day event also includes:

  • Presentations by goat experts and information on marketing, nutrition, stocking rates, producing meat and about raising goats, which is becoming an increasingly popular and viable business.

  • Buffet lunches including dishes made with some type of goat product, meat, milk, cheese, etc.
  • A copy of book Goat School™ (dubbed “Goats 101” by students). The book is a comprehensive guide on goats written by the Spauldings.
