University of GeorgiaThe seventh edition of the annual Goat-a-Rama near Tennille, Ga., promises to be the biggest yet. And for people who raise goats in Georgia and throughout the Southeast, the April 5 event is already the biggest around.
For the first time, this year's Goat-a-Rama will include a brood-stock auction. Full-blooded and high-percentage goats of brood-stock quality can be entered in this sale.
As always, spaces will be provided, for a small fee, for private-treaty goat sales. Among other things, the Goat-a-Rama will feature:
- Educational seminars and clinics on grooming and showing techniques, parasite identification and more.
- Demonstrations by industry experts on cooking, goat milking, hoof trimming and more.
- Goat equipment exhibits and sales, and feed and forage displays.
