The 6th Annual Goat Education Day will be held on Saturday, November 7, at the Tehama District Fairgrounds in Red Bluff, Calif. This day-long symposium provides something for every goat owner. Attendees from all goat industries will enjoy classes on dairy management, meat goat production, reproduction/kidding, livestock guardian dogs, novice and advanced health issues, ranch management and youth classes. Rounding out the rich selection are artisan classes on soap, lotion and cheese making.
There will be presenters from California Animal Health and Food Safety, UC Davis, Chico State University as well as local veterinarians and industry professionals. On-site will be vendors, raffle items, breakfast and lunch offerings and displays.
All day during the event, the Northern California Meat Goat Association will host a Special Reserve Meat and Milker Pen Sale. This private treaty style sale is a rare opportunity to purchase some of the best Boer and Dairy goat genetics in the West.
While similar events can cost hundreds of dollars for the instructors and educational opportunities offered, Goat Education Day is only $20 per adult or $5 per youth (9-18). Age 8 and under is free. Early registration is encouraged through www.brownpapertickets.com or forms can be downloaded at www.nvdga.org. Register early to avoid same day late fee!
