The North Valley Dairy Goat Association will host the 2011 Goat Education Day November 5 at the Tehama District Fairgrounds in Red Bluff, Calif. The day will feature 56 class options as well as demonstrations, vendors, raffles and more. More than 600 attended last year's events.
Classes will be taught by veterinarians, industry professionals and professors from UC Davis and CSU-Chico. The schedule which can be found at www.nvdga.org includes classes on general health, husbandry and ranch management as well as classes for specific meat or dairy goat application. In addition there will be expanded soap and cheesemaking options as well as a youth program with class choices throughout the day.
Special sessions on Pack Goats will be taught by Clay Zimmerman of High Uinta Pack Goats, Tooele, Utah. A special hard cheese class will be taught by author Gianaclis Caldwell of Pholia Farm Creamery. That evening enjoy the first ever Special Reserve Meat and Milker Sale in the Don Smith Arena where top meat, dairy and pack goats have been consigned to add to your gene pool.
An A.I. Tank Corral is also available if you would like to bring your AI tank to buy or sell semen.
Still taking reservations for vendors and consignors. But some classes are limited enrollment so go to www.nvdga.org today to pre-register for this event! Call 530-347-7376 for more information.
