ADGA only holds a Type Conference at Annual Convention every other year. The next Type Conference will be held at the Annual Convention in Syracuse, New York October 5-12, 2020.
“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.
Make plans now to attend Annual Convention 2020 at the Holiday Inn in Syracuse, New York and benefit from this workshop and many other activities that will improve your herd management. There are no additional fees to attend the Type Conference workshop.
