Billy and Elliot, the first Bagot goats born at recently at Coleg Cambria Northop have moved to their new home at St Helens College.

St Helens College were very excited at the arrival of the goats with them being the first large animals and they both settled in immediately and were being spoilt rotten!

“Although we are sad at losing two of our favourite goats we need to make space to continue with our breeding programme,” said Wendy Gacem, Animal Centre Manager at Coleg Cambria Northop.

“The work we do at the College breeding and promoting these rare goats is greatly contributing to the rise in numbers of this endangered animal.”

Wendy, along with other staff from the College, recently attended the Melton Mowbray Rare Breed Show and Sale, one of the biggest rare breed events on the calendar where they supported the Bagot Goat Society stand.

Jake, the main billy, is also off to new pastures in Ireland to a new rare breeds farm in conjunction with the Rare Breeds Survival Trust which is an exciting adventure for him.
