New This Year
New for the Maryland Dairy Goat Association this year
is a program that will be created once for the entire show season. It will feature mostly advertising but will also include some articles about the MDGA and our own member goat dairies. As it is an MDGA program,
the articles will be based on the club and its members,
but advertising is open to anyone (with some caveats).
Get your herdname and information out to visitors at our shows and at fairs and solicit your local suppliers to
place ads in the program.

of the entire 2013 program. It's a large file, give it time to load!
NEW - MDGA Awards Programs
New for 2013, the Maryland Dairy Goat Association
is giving special recognition to our members' goats
who have made significant achievement
in production and/or Linear Appraisal.
See the MDGA Awards Programs page for more information.
MDGA is a totally volunteer organization and cannot exist without help. If you come to our shows and/or want to be a part of promoting dairy goats in our area, please consider helping by volunteering to serve. Here is what is needed:
1. Committee members to help select a candidate
for judge's education stipend. (All work done by email.)
2. Ring Steward for our June Doe Show.
3. Secretary or Ring Stewart for our Lee Town Show.
4. June Doe Show Chairman
5. Youth Show Chairman and Secretary
New Show Rules for 2014
The June Doe and Youth Shows are no longer accepting same day entries (although day of show substitutions will still be allowed). There will be a significant discount for early entries. Entries received 6/14 - 6/21 will be double the early rate. More details will be coming as our 2014 show season gets closer.
