Welcome to East Texas Goat Raisers Association’s (ETGRA) web page. ETGRA was formed in 1996 by a dedicated group of Goat Ranchers and Farmers to promote the goat industry in East Texas. This dedication remains the priority of ETGRA’s Board and general membership. The association sponsors sales, shows, and workshops on a regular basis. Workshops cover all facets of raising goats such as marketing, feeding, medications, worming, genetics, preventative care, and general husbandry of goats. We invite all people in the goat industry to attend these events and hopefully join ETGRA. Whether you are a seasoned veteran or new to the practice of raising goats, ETGRA has a spot for you. There is a monthly meeting the first Tuesday of every month. Contact ETGRA or look under Events for meeting times, location, and method (most meetings are held via teleconference).
Current Event – Raffle for Savage III Trophy Hunter .270 Winchester Rifle with scope.
URGENT NOTICE! NEXT IMPORTANT EVENT – December Board Meeting to be held Saturday, December 9th, instead of teleconference on Tuesday the 5th. The meeting will be held at ETGRA’s home site (Hwy 69 N between Rusk & Jacksonville). The raffle drawing will be held around noon. Everyone is invited to attend. Please let Gwen (firstname.lastname@example.org) or Ann (email@example.com) know if you will be there. We hope to have a pizza lunch for everyone joining us, so help us get an advance head count.

ETGRA thanks the Goat Rancher Magazine for reaching so far into the goat world with their calendar. Seeing our September sale listed is so reassuring that our sale is available to more than our general area. This magazine is a really good source of information for goat ranchers and well worth the subscription. Check it out at www.goatrancher.com .
