Thank you for inquiring about the Pygora goat as a 4-H project. There are many books available for the care of goats in general. Working with your vet and breeder can help you with problems that may arise. Many breeders also spin the wonderful fiber that Pygora produce and they would be happy to discuss techniques and projects with you. There is a book dedicated to “Pygora Goats as 4-H projects” in the works, as this is being printed. If you ever have any questions, like how to start your own club or program, setting up a show or anything about Pygoras in 4-H, please don’t hesitate to contact me. Although each state and county does things a bit differently, I’m sure together we can make it happen.

Below is a list of Pygora goat clubs that have contacted the Pygora Breeder’s Association to be included in this publication. If you know of any clubs that are using Pygora goats as projects, please contact me and let me know so they too can be included.
