 Preparing and Showing Meat Goats: Training for Alabama Youths
Aug. – Oct., 2015

The purpose of this training is to teach the youths (19 years and younger) from Alabama and aware their parents and guardians on the major aspects of preparing and showing meat goats. There are several aspects that youths and their parents/guardian must be familiar with for successfully competing in goat shows and win. Youth participation in goat shows can be rewarding in many ways, such as learning about goats and their care and management from the very early age, developing leadership and confidence while participating in the actual shows, and gaining show skills. This kind of involvement may even help these youths to choose their career in animal science, veterinary science, farming, or other animal-related occupations as they grow up.
