Thank You Everybody! My show was on Tuesday and I got Grand Champion Showman! I am so glad that I found this forum because the judge asked me industry questions and I was the only one in my class that know the answer! This site is SOOOOOOOOO helpful!!

I like judges that ask hard questions... I usually end up thinking back to something someone here posted to get the answer. Its never failed . The hardest question that I've gotten was what is ketosis, how is it diagnosised and how is it treated... we were at a market wether show so I wasn't expecting a breeding question.

Our judges ask us similar questions. I've had what breed is your doe? where did it originate? (mine are Nigerian Dwarves, so it's a little obvious) Check adga.org for info on this kind of stuff also, there are 8 breeds of dairy goats. To remember their names, remember NONSALTS.... Nubian Oberhasli Nigerian dwarf Saanen Alpine LaMancha Toggenburg Sable. And yes, they like to ask body parts (chine, rump, pins, etc.) and also "one thing you like about your doe, one thing you would change" Just know those things and a lot about your breed. Also, your doe's age, birth date, breed, breed origination. And if they ask you a question you are totally stumped on, say "I don't know the answer to that question, but I'll have to find out and get back to you on that". They appreciate that. Good luck!

The hardest part I had was when they asked the what's your favorite/least favorite part about your goat... Well I was fine with that until the judge switched our goats THEN asked us that question.. I wasn't expecting that and hadn't really looked over the doe I got... So I was a little slow to answer her cause I had to look the doe over LOL! So I recommend looking over the goat that you get! LOL!

J.O.Y. Farm, I hate those too! I'm such a thinker when it comes to judging... It takes about 30 seconds to start answering, I'm sure the poor judges just want to tell me to hurry up

When I have a good group of seniors and I need to see who really knows their animals, I ask a lot of questions like disease questions, Scrapie questions (no that should not be hard but some kids just don't get it). It is really the disease questions that will stump them. Also explain what CAE-CL Johneys are. (CL and CAE, Ask them what they stand for). Most have no idea.
