Ok, myself and a friend/client of mine and her husband(from California) are putting together what we think will be something really big and bring more attention to the goat world. We have been talking for the last few weeks and already getting things rounded up and talking to organizations and everything about having a World Goat Expo. We are talking to places that we think would be good to have the expo and everything and coming up with ideas and getting everything rounded up for getting it all put together.We have not talked to all of the places yet about the possible use of the facilities but it is in the works. We want a place that is Central in the US to do this and these places seem to be pretty central. The places in mind for having it are as follows for sometime in 2012: Iowa State Fair Grounds Illinois State Fair Grounds University of Missouri Iowa State University There are other places in Iowa that it could be as well, we just don't know yet.There are some County Fair Grounds that have good rings as well, but we are looking for showing in a pavillion. All other livestock species have an expo and a world event, so why not have a World Goat Expo?? We are very excited about this and look for any advise/concerns/information that you may have for us. We are looking to have Dairy Goat shows for all breeds including Nigerian Dwarfs, and Pygmy. All meat goat breeds as well. Rules will follow the ADGA, ABGA, IBGA, NDGA, for showings and regulations. Would any of you be willing to bring your goats and show or atleast attend the shows and seminars/informational meetings that we hope to have. There will hopefully be meetings that deal with nutrition, hoof care, vaccines/veterinary information,etc. What kind of informational meetings would you be interested in having? There will be exibits and things as well. All feed back and ideas are welcome!! Please provide me with any and all feed back it is all welcome!!
