    There are dry classes for dry does, your doe has to be in milk to show in the milking class

    When showing in a milking class-the does with an udder will always be placed above one without an udder. The exception being a doe (with an udder) in bad bad condition, but only then.

    If your doe is under 2 years and never freshened then she will qualify as a junior. Not sure what your circumstances are?

    If your goats is under two and dry it would be shown as a Jr. You can show older dry does in their age class as long as they have freshened before. For instance, if you have a really nice doe that aborted, then can still show her but she might not do as well cause she wouldnt have an udder. Hope this helps!

    I'm not totally sure, but I it probably depends on the time of the year. The PA Farm Show lets you show dry does, b/c it's in January. Of course the does in milk place over the dry does.
