By Pat Bailey on January 13, 2012 in

Goat owners, veterinarians, students, and 4-H and FFA goat-project youths from throughout California will gather Saturday, Jan. 21, in UC Davis’ Freeborn Hall for UC Davis Goat Day 2012.

Morning speakers will address a variety of goat health and management topics. They also will provide updates on current goat research and other issues important to dairy, meat, fiber and companion-goat owners. The afternoon will feature demonstrations and illustrated presentations on cheese-making, health examinations, artificial insemination, feeding and showmanship, milk-tester training and ultrasound to detect pregnancy.

The event, which will run from 8:15 a.m. to 3 p.m., is sponsored by the UC Davis Department of Animal Science, UC Davis School of Veterinary Medicine and the California Dairy Herd Improvement Association. A complete agenda is available online at:
