All goats must be accompanied by a health certificate, issued within the past 30 days and signed by an accredited veterinarian who individually lists each animal and certifies that the animals are free of infectious and contagious diseases.
Topics to be covered include health, nutrition, marketing and recognition, what to expect at the fair, general care, and showmanship! In addition, we will be having a clipping and trimming demonstration, washing goats, participating in a mock show, and much more! Come and have a great time and make new friends!
