Goat Twilight Tour Draws Crowd

There was a good turnout at the Goat Twilight Tour held August 1 at the University of Maryland's Western Maryland Research & Education Center in Keedysville.

Loading up for the wagon tour.
Participants learned about the Center's Goat Research and Extension Program, including the Western Maryland Pasture-Based Meat Goat Performance Test and pen vs. pasture study.

Sampling goat meat.
Participants also had the opportunity to sample recipes made with goat meat (chevon). The recipes were prepared by a local chef (Todd Morren). The meat was from two locally-produced Kiko bucks that had been sired by a top-performing buck from a previous performance test.
