The Columbia Basin Goat Guild will be holding a full-day workshop May 14, 2011, in Centerville, Wash. Titled “Goat Academy,” this will be one of the most comprehensive programs in the Northwest. Attendees will be participating in hands-on lessons covering a variety of goat-related topics. A partial list includes hoof care and trimming, tattoo, ear tags, banding, blood draws, tube feeding, FEC analysis, shearing, fiber assessment, pack goats, harness goats, milking, show fitting, meat and dairy, genetics and more.

Obviously this is a packed day, and many classes will be going on simultaneously. The class schedules will be available on our web site at where you can print it out. Lunch of barbecue goat and salads will be included at no additional cost. This will be a great day for young and old alike, providing a wonderful opportunity to practice skills under the mentorship of experienced teachers. Proceeds from Goat Academy will help support the various goat related promotional activities the Guild is providing. Save the date and join us in Centerville, Wash., at Gateway farms.
