Spotlight Sale

2019 ADGA Spotlight Sale

The Spotlight Sale is one of two annual dairy goat auctions hosted by the American Dairy Goat Association. The  Spotlight Sale is held during ADGA Annual Convention in October while the Colorama Sale is held during the ADGA National Show in late June or early July.

Attending the sale is free, however, you won’t want to miss the hors d’oeuvres, dessert & champagne reception preceding the sale. Be sure to register for the “Spotlight Sale Reception” or make sure it is included in your registration package when completing your Annual Convention Registration.

While there are spotlights at the sale, the name better describes the scrutiny by which each animal is selected.  Learn more about the Spotlight Sale >>
