North Carolina A&T State University to Host the National Goat Conference

The School of Agriculture and Environmental Science at North Carolina A&T State University in Greensboro will be hosting the National Goat Conference later this month at the Koury Convention Center. Conference organizers expect up to 600 agricultural professionals to attend the four-day event. The conference will include programs, workshops, interactive activities and tours will be available of the university’s farm.

Dr. Ralph Noble, chair of the department of animal sciences at North Carolina A&T, stated, “A&T has a strong reputation for partnership, establishing outreach efforts, research with goats, and a strong animal science program.” So the university was a natural choice to host the conference, according to Dr. Noble.
