Twilight Goat Tour on Aug 1

There will be a Twilight Goat Tour on Thursday, August 1, 5:30 p.m. until dark, at the University of Maryland’s Western Maryland Research & Education Center. The Center is the location of the Western Maryland Pasture-Based Meat Goat Performance Test. It is located at 18330 Keedysville Road in Keedysville, Maryland.

There will be a tour of the test site of the Western Maryland Pasture-Based Meat Goat Performance Test. There are 81 bucks (mostly Kiko) in this year's test, consigned by 22 producers in 11 states. On the tour, you will also learn about the Center’s pen vs. pasture study, a three-year project in which the performance and carcass characteristics of pen-fed and pasture-raised goats are being compared.

Come sample goat meat prepared by a local chef.
In addition to the tour, there will be an opportunity to sample various recipes prepared with goat meat. The recipes are being prepared by a local chef. To make sure we have enough meat, pre-registration is required for the event.  A small donation is requested to help cover the cost of the meat.

You can pre-register by calling the Center (Pam Thomas) at 301-432-2767 x315. You may also pre-register by sending an e-mail to me at or Pam at The pre-registration deadline is July 26.
