KIDS and goats from around the region were all on show last Saturday at the Biloela Showgrounds for the Kid and Goatling Show.

The first show in the region for a number of years was held in association with the Dairy Goat Society of Australia and organiser Kate Thomson said the show was well received.

"The show went beautifully, we had five exhibitors and they travelled from Clermont, Miriam Vale, Gin Gin and some other locals," Ms Thomson said.

"We were quite pleased with the amount of people that turned out to watch as well."

Aimed at kids and goats from as young as two months up to two years, there was a variety of breeds as well.

"We had all the popular breeds of dairy goats exhibit which was very exciting," she said.

Plans for another show next year have been set in motion.

"We aren't sure when we will hold it due to the weather if it will be too hot or not but we will definitely be holding it again," she said.
