neither. not much milk (tho it is delicious) and not much meat which one reason they r the the rarest breed in UK.

we'd need a pet class for our bagot kid as hes a wether. anything for our billy?

Because I rarely get out to meet real people, I take part in a few on-line baking competitions, no tasting :( it's all judged on looks but it keeps me entertained.

So, I was wondering if there will be any classes at the festival for cakes, bread, jams, chutneys and wines?  If this info is available already can someone point me in the right direction.

Thanks
Sharon

Oh yes - HappyHippy has put together a wonderful Industrial section - arts and crafts, stick and crook making, preserves, baking, drinks, junior section.

Plus SPKA will be running a sausage competition.

Tweaking going on just now but all schedules should be available very soon  :thumbsup:

And yes, we have classes for Bagot goats but not entire bucks. Not sure about wethers - but will consult ballingall  :thumbsup:

After meeting Karen and Rosemary, I'm tempted to come up and support the show, if I can. Dates look okay so far.

No, our goat adviser said that because pregnant goats aren't shown, and most goatkeepers will have their milkers in kid for spring births, entries were likley to be low. Hence our focus on the "Stars of the Future"
