Important Goat Update

Goat Update
Please see the message below from our Goat Superintendents:

To All 4-H Goat Project members:

We have put into effect a new rule that all goat kids born for the 2018 Fair need to be born by April 1st. This applies to all breeds and includes does and wethers. Possession date for all goats is still May 1st.
That means breeding needs to get done as soon as possible. Goats bred this week would kid around February 15th (5 months or 150 days). And since does have a 21 day heat cycle this means we have only approximately 1 1/2 months to breed for an April 1st kidding date.
Please feel free to contact the goat superintendents with questions. Thank you!
