Twilight Goat Tour planned for Aug. 1 at Keedysville center

June 27, 2013

There will be a Twilight Goat Tour on Thursday, Aug., 1, from 5:30 p.m. to dark, at the Western Maryland Research and Education Center in Keedysville.

In addition to wagon tours of the facility and research program, there will be an opportunity to taste recipes prepared with goat meat.

The recipes will be prepared by a local chef.

To make sure there is enough meat, registration is required in advance.

A small donation is requested to help cover the cost of the meat.

Register by calling Pam Thomas at 301-432-2767, ext. 315, or send an email to pthomas@umd.edu. The registration deadline is July 26.

The center is the location of the Western Maryland Pasture-Based Meat Goat Performance Test.

This year, there are 81 bucks, mostly Kiko, on test.

The tour will also showcase the center’s pen vs. pasture study, a three-year project in which the performance and carcass characteristics of pen-fed and pasture-raised goats are being compared.
