Event description

Description

Goats can be a joyful addition to your family, that is if you know what you are doing. If you are ready to bring goats home, or if you are just starting to consider adding goats to your homestead, or family's farm experience, this workshop will give you the knowledge and confidence to make the most out of your goat ownership experience.

Back by popular demand! Our previous "Family Goat" Workshops have been well recieved and others have requested a chance to come to the workshop.

We have taken our years of experience of breeding and showing dairy goats with our six children, and put together an informative workshop of classroom instruction, and hands on demonstrations to train you in the fundamental care you will need to get started with goats.

Topics we will cover:

  • Why Goats?
  • Herd Purpose and Goals
  • Breed Selection
  • Breeder Selection
  • Goat Buying Guide
  • Housing and Fencing Needs
  • Feeding and Nutrition
  • Basic Health Care
  • Children, Goats, and 4H
  • Hoof Trimming Demonstration
  • Milking Demonstration
  • Tour of the Farm with Does and Nursing Kids

Our workshop will be held in the Dawson Gap Farm Store rain or shine. Register early to reserve your spot as this event which will be limited to 20 participants. There is a discounted rate for family members attending the same workshop.

Children 10 yrs and older are welcome with an accompanying parent at the Family Member price. Contact us about a 4H discount. Children under 10 may come with a parent at no charge, but there is no child care provided, and if children are disruptive you will be asked to excuse yourselves.

Registration is just $40 Adult/ $30 Family Member
