What is the Colorama Sale?
The Colorama Sale is a dairy goat auction held each year during the ADGA National Show and is an opportunity for breeders to improve their herd with high quality pedigrees and bloodlines. It is one of two annual dairy goat auctions held annually by the American Dairy Goat Association. Transportation is ideal because most potential buyers already have trailers at the National Show for other animals they are showing.
2019 Sale Date & Location
The ADGA Colorama Sale will be held on July 12, 2019 at 4:00 pm at the Deschutes Country Fairgrounds in Redmond, Oregon.
