ADGA holds a Type Conference at Annual Convention every other year.
“Type” refers to structural correctness. The “perfect” dairy goat would have all aspects of “ideal type” as described in the ADGA scorecard, used for judging dairy goats at ADGA Sanctioned Shows. At the American Dairy Goat Association Annual Convention, the Type Conference will address the structural correctness for dairy goat breeds.
The American Dairy Goat Association establishes type based on traits that represent the best well-being and productivity for each dairy goat breed. All dairy goat breeders and buyers would benefit from a better understanding of the traits that highly productive animals possess.
There are no additional fees to attend the Type Conference workshop.
