Regional Championships


What is a Regional Champion?
A Regional Champion is the overall Champion Fainting Goat Buck, Doe, and Wether
in a given region of the United States.

Our goal is to recognize those special extraordinary Fainting Goat in each region.

How does my goat become a Regional Champion?
Once each year, if your Fainting Goat qualifies (see eligibility below), he/she can compete against other Champion Fainting Goats within your Region of the United States.
