Hello I am Brian Hardy, I was born and raised in NC. I have an associate's degree in business. I am currently employed by the City of Newton Fire Department as a Engineer. I also own H &C Boer Goat Farm where we raise registered and commercial goats. We are actively in showing goats for the last 3 years. I look forward in helping the association if elected. Thank you

Devy Davison

Greetings from the Acres. My name is Devy Davison. My daughter and I are the owners/partners in Cornflake Acres Farm. I have been raising goats for almost 20 years. Boer goats have become a passion for me and we strive to improve our genetics, herd management, and pasture management each year. We believe in quality over quantity here at the Acres. I have served on the BGANC board for a year and accepted the position because of my passion for the Boer goat breed and the desire to ignite that passion in other "goat folks". My goal is to get cutting edge, and useful information to those who share my desire to further and promote the Boer goat breed, whether in a commercial or pure-bred herd. I look forward to working with other Boer goat lovers in striving for excellence in their herds.

Martina Zinn

Hello,

My name is Martina Zinn. I am a native West Virginian, but I have lived in North Carolina for over 15 years.I currently reside in Henderson County where I am a high school art teacher for Henderson County Public School and an artist. I incorporate my love for animals in most of my artwork.
My husband Joel Bucker and I started Cherry Blossom Creek Farm in 2012. We started with a few registered Full blood goats and ended up revamping our program a couple of years later. We started to focus more on quality and breed standards, as we learned more about the breed and the industry. We have been showing a little more over the past few years and are continuing to learn. We are so grateful for the help from people we have met along the way.
As a board member of the BGANC, I would like to help bring more educational seminars to North Carolina, opening up to the Western part of the state as well. There is not a lot of opportunity for workshops and seminars on Boer goats in the Mountains.
As a teacher, I enjoy helping the youth. I would love to help get more youth, as well as adults involved in Raising and or showing Boer goats. I hope to combine my passions for raising Boer goats and helping people, to help the BGANC grow.
Thank you,
Martina Zinn
