On August 8th at the Juneau County Fairgrounds the Wisconsin State Meat Goat Expo will take place. This is a replacement show for the Wisconsin State Fair and will be open to both junior and open showman. Check-in will begin at 6:00 am with the junior show starting at 8:30 am.
Matt Harried, one of the organizers of this event, said that the reason they are putting this show on is because they want to give youth the opportunity to show this summer. Also, it is important to show to get the word out about meat goats as a hobby or a business. Meat goats in recent years have been gaining popularity in Wisconsin and other states in the Midwest, but in other parts of the world these goats play a big role in the economy.
