For those of you not heading to Boise for the ADGA National Convention in October, the next event for the year in Minnesota will be the MDGA Fall Conference on November 16th. This will be held at our long-time location at the University of Minnesota St. Paul Campus in Ruttan Hall. Check our Events page for the conference schedule. You can register online, Here.
We will also be having semen available during our live auction this year instead of animals. Please contact Casey Prochniak, if you have any questions, would like to help, or if you would like to donate for our live auction! If you have a business and would like to be a vendor, we have openings.
There were many requests for
information from the educational sessions that were offered at the 2018
ADGA National Convention.
To meet that need, the Minnesota Dairy Goat
Association (MDGA) is offering USB Drives for sale, which will include
presentations and resources provided by the speakers who shared their
knowledge at Convention.
The USB Drive will also include the full digital
program book which includes speaker contact information, biographies,
session descriptions, vendor and sponsor contact information and more.
County Fairs are constantly looking for qualified individuals to judge youth dairy goat shows. No special certification is required just a knowledge of dairy goats and an interest in working with youth. Even if you have not judged before, this may be your time! The MDGA is organizing a list of interested individuals that can be shared when county fairs contact the association. If you would like to be considered for the list, please contact Larry Marquette and provide a brief description of your experience with dairy goats and youth.
Each year the MDGA considers nominations
for Outstanding Youth.
