Best wishes to Rosalee Sinn, humanitarian, activist, grandmother, longtime supporter and Secretary-Treasurer of IGA, and lover of goats on her birthday, October 21.
Rosalee Sinn who worked for Heifer International for over 30 years, was at the International Conference on Goats in Arizona where IGA was borne and one of the key people in convincing Heifer International to sponsor IGA when it was being organized. She was the Editor of the IGA newsletter for most of the 1980s as well as the Secretary-Treasurer from 1993 to 1999. As many longtime members of IGA will know, Rosalee was for many years the social glue which kept many people involved with IGA.
We are offering a FREE 1 year IGA membership with online access to Small Ruminant Research for 1 lucky person.

Embryo transfer (ET) is a recognized reproductive technology in food-animal production. It allows genetically superior females to make greater contributions to breeding programs. Also, appropriate processing of embryos recovered from animals infected with chronic viral and bacterial infections means those embryos can be transferred to healthy recipients with virtually no risk of disease transmission. Recovered embryos can be frozen for transfer at a future time or different location. The sale of embryos obtained from valuable donors represents an income stream for while breeders can retain ownership of their valuable donors.

Producers from around the province came together in Camrose, Alberta, September 27, 28, and 29, to celebrate their involvement in Alberta's goat industry. The event kicked off with a BBQ and social Friday night, and although the weather was nippy it, didn't dampen producers' spirits as everyone enjoyed the food, catching up with their fellow producers and making new friends.
Milk is nature’s most complete food, and dairy products are considered to be the most nutritious foods of all. Several books have been published on the subject of milk and dairy products; however, these books contain only partial or limited coverage on the subject and usually focus primarily on cow milk and human milk.
Milk and Dairy Products in Human Nutrition is the first book to contain comprehensive coverage of all available dairy species for human consumption around the world. The Editors have assembled a team of 61 internationally renowned experts to contribute to this exhaustive volume, which contains essential cutting-edge information for dairy scientists, nutritionists, food scientists, allergy specialists, and health professionals, as well as dairy consumers worldwide.
