September is fast approaching. Have you gotten your International Goat Days goat show information yet?

All of the Goat Days information (including the schedule, though it still has a few errors on goatie activities) is posted on the Goat Days web site Be sure to "refresh" your screen before you download, or you may end up with last years' information (LOL).
The only thing that is not there yet is information about the added activities we will have this year for the Youth. Yes, we will be having Showmanship classes, and we are adding a few "twists" to the two older classes to make it a bit more competetive. We are also adding some very nice "trophy" items as well.

Plus, we will be having a Youth judging contest. This will be conducted using the FFA scorecard and rules, but it will be on an individual basis, not a team basis. The entries will judge the overall Percentage Doe, Fullblood Doe and Fullblood Buck championships, with the buck class to be the tie-breaker. The winner will be the Youth whose placings are closest to those of our judge, Mark Berry. There will be some nice "trophy" items for this contest as well.

My co-chair this year is LeAnne McRae, who is the Goat Advisor for the Munford High School FFA group!

Have you noticed how few ABGA shows there have been around here this year? I have not had my Boers out to a show since Dixie Nationals (where my goats went down with the Munford FFA group, who ended up showing them as a serious snow-and-ice storm moved in about noon on Friday and I couldn't make it). I've been getting inquiries from all over, from people who have been in the past and people who have never come before. Think it's going to be a big show, unless another Katrina (God forbid) intervenes!

Hope to see YOU there!
