  1. Tea Cup Farm says:

    Will proceedings or videos or webinars be available for those of us without farmsitters?

    • David Abbott says:

      Hi–There is currently no budget or arrangements for streaming or recording Annual Convention workshops with the exception of the Spotlight Sale. There will be live streaming and online bidding available for that sale.

  2. I would like to enter my goats milk shampoo/body wash to be judged. How do I go about doing that?

  3. Kim Puzio says:

    Do you know what will be disgused on the AASRP program?

  4. Tierra Johnson says:

    Hi! I’m from Montana and am wondering if there is a deadline for filling out any paperwork to attend this Convention. I would like to participate in as many AI classes and other events as I can. Are the cost for those separate or is it all a flat rate fee? I’m new to all of this.😅😅

  5. Alpines International is offering a $250 youth scholarship to a youth, that is a member of Alpines International (just $15/yr). Contact Alpines International Club on their website or FB page for the application!

  6. Peggy Sanford says:

    Arbuckle Classic dairy goat club is giving scholarships for youth attending our show to have us pay for youth track. I do not have a head count yet as applications are due back to us July 1st. Can you tell me how much this will cost per youth so I have an idea how many youth we can sponcer? Thank you.
