The first year was a huge success with 400-450 goats in attendance in 2012 with about 600-800 people in attendance with their goats or for seminars. In 2013, this number increased to a total of 825 goats in attendance for show and exhibit, people in numbers for the 5 days increased to 2500+ attending seminars and shows, showing goats or being vendors. The organizers are excited to announce they have increased attendance again, and the number of goats showing at NGE. Boer goats were the highest in number with 162 goats.
We will still be having seminars at the NGE, which will take place Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Featured speakers include: Dr. Fred Homeyer, Deborah Niemann-Boehle. A few others will also speak on topics relative to the goat industry. We will also be having an AI clinic and a Buck collection at the NGE given and being done by David and Brittany Carwell of B & D Livestock. There will also be 2 fitting clinics done by Crede Garriott; 1 on a boer wether and 1 on a boer doe.
