  1. Show Circuit
    Hi! I have 2 year old who has always been difficult about her back end. You touch anywhere near her tail or back legs and she starts bucking like crazy. I even had the vet out because I thought something was wrong. Nope, just a diva. She is a FF and is due early May. I want to show her in June...
  2. Show Circuit
    until now we have only had pet goats. My daughter very badly wants to get a Boer wether this spring to raise and show at the county fair. She is a year too young to show through 4h. She does not want to sell the goat, she will retain him as her pet. What are her options? I’m having a terrible...
  3. Goat Management
    Okay so I have 3 babies going with their mom to the fair in 4 days, they wouldn’t normally have to be tattooed by then, but so was told because I paid for an adult goat that I’m not taking that I could show a baby. These babies will be about 2 weeks by the show. If I show one she would have to...
  4. Show Circuit
    Hello! I'm going to a show on Monday that required scrapie tags and if I ordered them it would be $35 in shipping to get here by then. I was wondering if I can just use identification tags from the store? Wpuld they notice if my goat only had a identification tag? I literally need just 1 tag for...
  5. Show Circuit
    Hey, looking into the ADGA shows on thier website, there's not a single one in VA. Is it not updated? I know they are missing at least 1 show on their site because there is a buck show an Ameila county in a few weeks that is adga sancitioned, and I can think of a few others that were in...
  6. Show Circuit
    Ok so I was looking over the entry form for a show I am going to, and it says I need a scrapie tag. I have never seen a dairy goat (in show) with a scrapie tag, but I called to see where I can get one anyways. After many calls, I got nothing. I am extremely confused. So here are my questions...
  7. Show Circuit
    I have two junior girls, one born 4-5-18, the other born 4-24-18, that I’d like to show, however I can only show one goat at a time. Is it possible to “lease” out one of the doelings to someone else to show them at the same time? I’m the only name on my ADGA account and, since I’m a youth...
  8. Beginners Goat Raising
    Okay I grew up with cattle we had a couple Nubian but wild dogs got rid of them by the time I was old enough to remember. I'm wanting to get into Boer goats. I've got my fencing bought and 3/4 done got a large barn we use to store close to 300 round bales in every year. I'm going with woven wire...
  9. Meat Market
    I feed him 3 pounds Jacoby's red tag, 1 pound fitter 35 supplements. I run him about 6 times back and forth, and stand him on two bricks for at least 30 minutes. what are some suggestions and tips you have? how does he look in your opinion? I also included a video of him.
  10. Goat Frenzy
    I'm showing my goats a week from now and it's still rather chilly here, so I don't want to wash them (and myself) with a cold water hose. I still have to clip them, and wondered if anyone has a recipe for a good DIY waterless shampoo, just something that will take most of the dirt off my...
  11. Goats For Sale
    These boys were born March 20 and are being bottle raised (on pasteurized milk). Their dam is one of my best does and is currently milking 11 pounds a day. She placed first in her class at the NC State Fair last year, and her daughter from last year (full sister to these two) was Reserve Grand...

  15. Goat Frenzy
    Sooo... Have any of you heard of the virtual goat shows where goats are judged based on submitted photos. I think this is a really neat thing, especially for those who can't/don't show in the ring. Anybody heard of them for miniature dairy goats (mini Nubians, mini lamanchas, Nigerians, ect.)...
  16. 4H/FFA Corner
    I live in Oregon and I have a show tomorrow. My adviser said that I can use a scrapie ear tag from the school for now but he wasn't sure if I needed one or not. I live in Oregon, and I have a Nigerian Dwarf doe. I won't be selling her. I just need to know if I need to put one in or not. If I...
  17. Goat Frenzy
    I have 3 goats. 2 does and a buck. They all share a pasture and haven't really been separated much since we got them. The does are sisters and have only been separated when I'm working with one and not the other. The problem is I have a show in 2 weeks and if I try to work with one doe at a time...
  18. Show Circuit
    I have been raising Boers and have a decent sized herd. Lately, I have been thinking I would like to try showing. I have two awesome show quality doelings and a few more back-ups. One is registered. The other is commercial. Any suggestions of shows that would be good to start at that are close...
