The Japan Goat Network (JGN) was founded in 1999 by researchers and producers who value goats and their products. The founders started with reviewing the goat utilization and promoting its production in Japan saying, “goats save the world.” Goats were one of the very important proteins and socio-economic resources in Japan during the reconstruction period after WWII. They also played a great role to reduce poverty in the world.
Promoting goats with love.
The JGN promotes goats in Japan through sharing and exchanging information on goat management and production, goat milk and meat processing, product marketing, and other goat utilizations such as vegetation control, juvenile emotional education, and as companion animals among researchers, producers, and consumers as well as goat lovers.
