Start haunting the conformation section of the forum. You'll learn a lot just by watching other people's goats being judged.

This is an outstanding resource: https://cornerstonefarm.net/wp-content/uploads/2020/11/Easy-Dairy-Goat-Conformation.pdf

Also posting well set up pictures of your goats for members to judge is a really great way of learning as well. That way you can ask all sorts of questions when they tell you their pros and cons. 馃檪

I learned by (trying) stacking my goats and posting them and then learning from what people said about my goats.

Go on ADGA.org - there is a section that shows structure, as judging will go in depth. Go to a lot of shows to watch. Try to find a mentor who shows
