What is ADGA Annual Convention?

The ADGA Annual Convention serves as both the yearly convention for the American Dairy Goat Association (ADGA) and the ADGA Annual Meeting.  It is held each October or November and the location is determined one to two years in advance by ADGA Annual Meeting Long Range Committee.

The convention is open to both ADGA Members and non-members alike. The meeting portion of the convention has certain limitation, as would be expected, but the majority of the convention is very applicable to anyone interested in the dairy goat industry and dairy goat products.

Upcoming Annual Convention Locations

2021 – Tucson, Arizona, November, 8-14 at El Conquistador Tucson, A Hilton Resort
2022 – Syracuse, New York, October 3-9 at the Ramada by Wyndham
2023 – Tulsa, Oklahoma, October 17-23 at Marriott Tulsa Hotel Southern Hills

What Happens at Annual Convention?

The ADGA Annual Meeting begins with the ADGA Board of Directors electing the ADGA Executive Committee for the upcoming year. Then association business is conducted with the newly elected Executive Committee officiating. Learn more about how ADGA is governed >>

Apart from the association meeting, the week is filled with educational seminars, The American Association of Small Ruminant Practitioners (AASRP) programming, multiple youth events and hands-on events such as cheese making and AI seminars.

A Banquet and Costume Ball traditionally take place on Friday evening as well as a champagne and dessert buffet proceeding the much anticipated, Spotlight Sale on Saturday night. The Spotlight Sale is one of two premium dairy goat auctions hosted by ADGA annual and is not to be missed.
