Foothills Goat & Sheep Producers Association
Foothills Goat & Sheep Producers Association works to promote the goat and sheep industry in the foothills region of both Carolinas. Headquartered in Shelby, NC, the organization seeks to benefit members through collaborative education & marketing strategies. Major events include sanctioned goat shows, youth shows & clinics, and an annual Boer Goat Production Sale. Membership is $35 per farm, due January 1 each year.
The Association holds regular business meetings at the Cleveland County Extension Center, located at 130 S. Post Road in Shelby. We also coordinate educational presentations, demonstrations and field days tailored to the information needs and interests of our members.
