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
2022 – Syracuse, New York, October 1-7 at the Ramada by Wyndham Liverpool/Syracuse
