Southeast goat producers marketing survey

Goat experts from seven land-grant universities (Langston, Tuskegee, Virginia State, Tennessee, Fort Valley State, Florida A&M, Prairie View A&M) from the Southeast USA are working together to promote the sustainable goat industry in this region. 

One of the challenges this team has realized is the marketing issues producers are facing in this region. Therefore, this team is conducting a survey study with producers from the Southeast Region (Alabama, Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, South Carolina, Tennessee, Texas, Virginia, Puerto Rico, and US Virgin Islands). 

The aim of this study is to help meat goat producers from the Southeast overcome challenges in marketing goats and goat products. Based on the survey results, strategies will be developed and used to educate goat producers to overcome the marketing challenges. 

All goat producers in the southeast USA are requested to take the survey below to help develop the marketing strategies for goats and goat products. The survey will take approximately 15 minutes to complete. To take the survey, click this survey link or scan the QR code. Please submit by Sept. 30, 2023.



Your response is extremely valuable to understand the challenges you are facing and develop marketing strategies to overcome them. Please feel free to share this message and survey link and/or QR code (below) to your fellow goat producers. We need as many responses as possible to gather necessary information in order to develop strategies that help producers marketing their goats and goat products in the southeast USA. 


Thank you in advance for taking time and completing this survey!
