What is the ADGA National Show?

The ADGA National Show showcases the achievements of dairy goat owners and breeders for the hard work they are doing to produce high quality dairy goats. The show is a week-long event held annually in late June to mid-July. The location changes from year to year and is determined 2-3 years in advance based on bids received by the ADGA National Show Long-Range committee.

Winning animals and their owners receive awards and recognition at the event and in many agricultural publications. More importantly, the owners receive prestige in the dairy goat community and can often get better prices for their breeding stock.
