The 3rd Annual Corn Country Commercial Goat Conference will be held Oct. 28-29 at the fairgrounds in Corydon, Ind. The conference is free and offers seminars and educational opportunities for anyone interested in learning more about the goat industry. This year the conference is designed to provide both new and experienced goat producers the tools needed to raise more and healthier meat goats and how to make more money doing it.
Topics will range from parasite management to forages to general health maintenance to a demonstration of goat meat cookery.
The conference is sponsored by Purdue University Extension and the National Kiko Registry. Following the final seminar on Saturday, a free goat meat meal will be served.
For more information on the conference contact Dave Sparks, DVM, at 918-686-7800 or firstname.lastname@example.org or www.creamofcropkikos.com.
After the conference on Saturday afternoon a group of goat breeders from across the country will be holding a Kiko production sale. Appropriately named the Cream of the Crop Production sale, it will offer approximately 100 head of Kiko breeding stock, all registered with the National Kiko Registry.
This will be a "no reserve auction" and the goats will go home with the high bidders. For more information on the sale or to request a catalog visit www.creamofcropkikos.com or call 918-484-2364.
