This is a wonderful opportunity to bring your goats to be evaluated by Dr. Ross. This would involve transporting your goats to Spring Gate Farm on Saturday October 11th, 2014. All goats would need to be in place by 5pm. Bucks would need to be tied up or kept in your trailer overnight. All goats from out of state would need to have appropriate health papers. Please also bring last years fleece if you still have it. Joe David will be conducting a workshop where he will be assessing fiber and conformation on live goats as well as reviewing the results of the fleece competition.
