"To promote the Club Goat Program, the Junior Livestock Program, and the raising of Club Goats in the State of Mississippi; and to encourage men, women, and children to participate in any activities or events sponsored by the association.”

History

In 1999, after lobbying the Mississippi Livestock Council for inclusion in the junior livestock program, market goat shows were added at the district show level. The show rules were adopted and a successful club goat program was born. After proving numbers were substantial enough to merit a statewide show, market goats were brought to the Dixie National Junior Round Up in 2001.

Market goats were included in the Sale of Junior Champions for the first time in 2002 with the Grand Champion selling for $2,862 and the Reserve Grand Champion selling at $2,400. In the wake of this success, the Mississippi Club Goat Association (MCGA) was formed with Kipp Brown as advisor and Jessie Cornelius as the president. Since 2002 the MCGA has grown exponentially.

In 2010, MCGA started the Mississippi Club Goat Junior Show Circuit (MCGJSC) which allows junior members of the association to earn points toward year end awards by showing in sanctioned shows throughout the year. The top ten point earners in the market goat, commercial doe and three showmanship divisions are recognized at year end.
