The next ADK Goat Club meeting will be on Sunday, September 23, 2012 from 12pm - 3pm at Gail Huston's house in Bloomingdale. For directions please contact Rose Bartiss at rosesgoats(at)gmail.com. The theme of the meeting will be "Breeding: Preparation and Breeder Selection". We will discuss signs of heat, best times to breed, how to pick a buck, how to pick a breeding doe, what does need during pregnancy, buck health, etc.
This meeting will be a potluck lunch, so please bring a dish to pass
around. All are welcome to attend, even if you aren't planning to breed
your goats this fall. Please come and join us for some goat fun!
The ADK Goat Club will be at the Farm2Fork Fest in Saranac Lake at
Riverside Park this Saturday (9/1/12) from 9am - 2pm. We will have some of our
goat friends with us to help educate people about the caprine world. If
you haven't been to the Farm2Fork Fest before, I highly recommend it! It
is like a huge Farmer's Market with lots of fresh food to eat made by
local restaurants, free seminars on homesteading and food preparation,
and activities for the kids. Check it out at www.farm2forkfest.com.
