    Someone in Alberta mentioned that they thought there is a dairy goat show in this area this weekend - I am in Aldergrove, BC. Can anybody provide information/details on this?
    Thanks

    There are a couple in the next week but this weekend at your backdoor
    IT's a dairy show but I'm sure you can make a ton of contacts.

    P.S. Go here for all kinds of Goat information:

    It's Goat Keeper Magazine and if you click the Events button you will see a bunch of shows in Western Canada.

    Good luck finding a buddy for your lonesome baby!!!

    Did you manage to get to the goat show? Find any breeders handy to you?

    Hi Cathy!
    I didn't get there - on again tomorrow too, though.
    My husband ended up having to work double shifts all weekend long and I am 9 months pregnant - due anyday now, so wasn't too eager to get out there alone.
    Thanks for asking - I have checked out the goatkeeper website and will keep our eyes on it. Also, going to check out a few people in the neighbourhood that have a ton of goats and check in with the 4-H kids next door.
