National Goat Exposition
Set for Fall of 2012

The National Goat Exposition committee has been hard at work and is pleased to announce that the National Goat Expo will take place on October 7-11th, 2012 at the Iowa State Fair Grounds in Des Moines, Iowa.

This 5 day event will have something for all goat breeders in a one stop format. For the dairy goat breeders there will be daily sanctioned shows (some dual) for all breeds of dairy goats. Seminars by Dr. Curtis Young, from Iowa State University, will be given on Goat Reproduction and Dr. Noah Litherland, from the University of Minnesota, will be presenting feeding information on Dry Doe and Kids in the Nursery. Demonstrations will also be given on how to use goat milk to make soap, lotion and simple cheeses.

Boer goat breeders will have a sanctioned show and seminars on various topics. The other meat breeds, such as the New Zealand Kiko, Spanish, and Savanna will be showcased and seminars will be held to learn more about these increasingly popular breeds and how to raise them.

The committee hasnít forgotten the fiber goats either. Several breeds of fiber goats such as Angora and Pygora will be at the exposition, along with demonstrations on how to shear and spin goat fiber into yarn will be held during the five day event.

In addition to seminars, demonstrations, shows and showcases there will be vendors such as Hoegger Goat Supply and Sydell, plus many more. You will be able to purchase everything goat related.

The National Goat Exposition of 2012 will certainly be a huge event for goat breeders and enthusiast that we hope to have year after year. For more information contact Jen Parrish at (515) 402-6124 or email at
