Recently, our Jr. Directors were asked to choose their JD awards this year.  The task was turned over to Kirsten and every one of them responded within 24 hours!!  What an awesome group to work with.  :)  We will miss the leadership of those who will be moving on to greater things, but we are confident those remaining can fill their shoes.


The JMGSC will lose 4 Jr. Directors this year and are looking for replacements.  Go to the bottom of the Directors page on our website and read the qualifications that could make you eligible to join this stellar group!  The deadline to apply to be a Jr. Director is 6/15/14.


This scholarship is available to JMGSC members who will graduate from high school this spring and who were a member in good standing in the 2013 season.  A fully complete application must be in the JMGSC office no later than May 1, 2014.  Contact to receive the terms and conditions that must be signed and returned before an application is released.


Our donors will soon be receiving a request for their support in awarding our members for  their success.  If you did not receive the letter and form to send in your donation and would like to help award our members for their work over this last year, please feel free to print out the donor form found on our website.  Click on the Applications tab on our home page, scroll to the bottom of the list of forms and click on “donor form 2014,” complete the form, and mail it to JMGSC, 1004 Virginia Circle, Big Lake, TX  76932.  The donations must be received by April 17 so the members know who to send a thank-you note to and have their award ordered.  We appreciate your generosity and invite you to our banquet held on July 26, 2014, at the Tom Green County 4-H Building in San Angelo.


Don’t forget about the $300 and $200 scholarships our members can earn just by recruiting new members for the ORIGINAL and still the BEST meat goat organization in Texas!!!

For the 2012 season, 56 new members were recruited!  In the 2013 season, only 7 were recruited!  Let’s introduce more goat exhibitors to the JMGSC this year, gain points and be eligible for a scholarship.

All 2013 JMGSC memberships expired immediately following the market goat show at the Sandhills Livestock Show on January 4,  2014.  In order to be eligible for points in the 2014 season, you need to renew your membership NOW.  2014 JMGSC memberships run from immediately following the conclusion of the 2014 Sandhills Market Goat show until the conclusion of the 2015 Sandhills Market Goat show.  See our Membership Rules for further information.

SHOUT-OUT!  Fifty-two members turned in their completed membership form and dues by January 31, 2014, and will receive 5 bonus points in the 2014 season.  Hope you were one of them.


If you are planning to attend livestock shows, sales, the JMGSC banquet, etc. in San Angelo and will need overnight lodging, PLAN EARLY and be prepared to pay more than in the past.  As the oilfield activity is picking up in the area, it can be difficult to find hotel rooms as well as making travel more dangerous.  The same can be said for most of West Texas.  Be careful in your travels and see ya down the road.
