Annual Goat Clinic and Q & A scheduled for March 19

The annual Adams County Junior Fair Goat Clinic and Q& A has been scheduled to help 4-H and FFA members enrolled in goats project learn the skills needed to successfully raise and show their goats at the 2016 Adams County Fair. The clinic, set for Saturday morning, March 19, will help members and their families learn about the market goat industry, learn to feed goats to market weight, and learn about the goat industry beyond the show ring. Participants in the clinic will receive their Ohio youth quality assurance certification for the year.

The clinic will run from 9 a.m. until noon and will be held in the Senior Fair Administration Building at the Adams County Fairgrounds, West Union. Among the presenters will be a feed company representative sponsored by Dinsmore Farm and Fleet, West Union; Terry and Sandy Rinehart of Stony Hollow Farm, Georgetown; Gayla Fritzhand, JZN Goat Farm, Winchester; and Carolyn Belczyk, Extension Educator, OSU Extension Adams County. The clinic is being planned and conducted by the 4-H Small Animal Committee, chaired by Mike Scott.

This is the seventh year the Small Animal Committee has conducted such a clinic. This year, it’s more important than ever for members and their families to keep their project goal in mind: to successfully raise, exhibit, and market a high quality, safe, market-ready food product. Again in 2016, all market animals, regardless of species, will need to make weight at fair weigh-ins in July in order to compete for champion and to sell in the Fair’s Livestock Sale. The weight range for market goats, which will be weighed on Monday morning, July 11, is 50-120 pounds.

The 4-H Market Goat Clinic is open to all interested 4-H and FFA members from Adams and neighboring counties. Youth will need to arrive and register from 8:45-9 a.m., and they must remain on site until noon in order to receive their quality assurance certification.

The clinic targets younger or less experienced project members, although any member is welcome. For more information about the clinic or any of the OSU Extension youth educational programs, contact Carolyn Belczyk at belczyk.1@cfaes.osu.edu or via telephone at 937.544.2339.
