One of the goals set when creating the Junior Minnesota Meat Goat Association was to create a place for Minnesota youth in every part of the meat goat industry to come together and share their passions.
The Junior Minnesota Meat Goat Association is a place where everyone can come together to learn, network and build personal and professional connections.
Whether you are raising commercial meat goats or registered stock, are brand new to the game or a seasoned veteran, raising goats as a hobby or are a competitive showman, the JMMGA is for you, and we would love your membership.
JMMGA Membership is open to any youth 21 years of age or younger as of January 1.
Benefits of Being a Member
As a member of the Junior Minnesota Meat Goat Association, you will become a part of the Mentorship Program, and have the chance first hand to learn from some of the best meat goat showman in the state.
Within the JMMGA Mentorship Program, the selected mentors make themselves available to you at home, at shows and at sales to answer your questions, help you with hands on learning, and help you and your goat be the best you can be.
They also create content like blog posts and videos you can find on the Resources page explaining various aspects of raising and showing meat goats.
These youth truly are some of the best in the state! Check out their success at the 2019 Minnesota State Fair 4H Show. Arguably one of the most competitive shows in the state!!
Between the Mentors, they have OVER 14 combined Champion or Reserve Champion State Fair Showmanship titles! A few also have class wins and Overall titles under their belt as well.
Membership is FREE!
Membership to the JMMGA is absolutely free because we believe the benefits of being a part of a youth organization should not come at a price. At no cost to you, you can become a member of the JMMGA, and reap all the personal and professional benefits that come with the camaraderie and education offered in this association.
