I have no articles right now so it would be tough to show, but as high of a resolution you can get would be appreciated.

I will contact you once you've been approved. I try to get to them once a week. I don't typically get to them on the weekends as I'm out and about with my family. This weekend we went to my brother's B-Day party.

I'm confused on what type of "article" it has to be?
I know that there are just funny stories all about why you shouldn't look at the sun & sneeze while feeding the goats (just an example).
Or there is "article" as in what you should do, when to do it, how to do it, or something like "if you come across this very tough problem you should......"
I know it's probably a dumb question but I'm curious, I want to write one. (Get me back into school mode) {summer project.. To stay motivated for school :rollseyes: }

I believe the articles are more like "how to treat worms" or "how to trim toenails", that kind of thing. More in the husbandry, health and wellness type area.

I'm really interested in technical, but if you guys want to see some humorous articles I would love to add that section. Just let me know.

Hello! I have a question about article submission. What exactly does it mean that the photos submitted become the property of TGS? I have written an article about the Nigora goat breed, but I want to be sure that the photos I submit can still be used by me, my fellow Nigora breeders, and the American Nigora Goat Breeders Association to promote the breed on our respective websites and such.

If this is an issue, is there any way to submit an article strictly for educational purposes and decline the free upgraded membership so that the article/photos still belong to me?

Thanks in advance! :D

I have a large article on fodder feeding with many pictures. It is too large to attach in the means provided. Is there an email where I can attach about a 6MB file?

I submitted an article. Let me know what you think! I could also write a follow-up article on how to BE a successful farm sitter...
