The IGA Board of Directors has decided to postpone the 13th International Conference on Goats
Even though the 13th ICG is several months away, the current COVID-19 crisis has made it extremely difficult to plan any large gathering. We know the dangers of infectious diseases and the need to prevent exposure, so rather than put people at risk unnecessarily, the Board of Directors has decided to postpone this conference.
A new date has not been chosen. We will continue to monitor the situation and hope to announce the new date in a few months.
As the COVID-19 Global Pandemic moves across the world, we send our sincere hope for good health and protection to the entire IGA family. We are all affected by this situation, some more seriously than others.
We need to support each other professionally and personally as best we can. And we need a future where robust science informs public policy to prevent this type of tragedy. May we, our families and colleagues endure this current situation, and we will see you again in Hungary in 2021!

The picturesque town of Eger is located in the Western gate of the scenic Bükk Mountains. This thousand-year-old Episcopal seat, today an archiepiscopal center, is one of the most beautiful baroque towns of the country. Its inhabitants are proud of its illustrious historical past and the valuable heritage of monuments and buildings.
We are looking forward to welcoming you to Eger in September 2020. Let’s meet for an outstanding conference on goats.
