1904 St. Louis World's Fair
Milk Goat Show
The milk goats, or milching goats as they were called in 1904, were expecting a large number of entries at the fair. Several goats from Switzerland, Malta, and Washington D.C. were supposed to show at the fair. However, the only recorded milking goat breeders to show in St. Louis was the Cohill family. Their breeds of milking goats included: Angoras, Toggenbergs, and Saanens.
