82 nominations received

As of today, we have received 82 nominations for the 2008 Western Maryland Pasture-Based Meat Goat Performance Test. The nomination period closes Thursday, May 15.

We have received nominations from breeders in Delaware (2), Illinois (2), Kansas (1), Kentucky (1), Maryland (5), Mississippi (1), Missouri (1), Oklahoma (1), Pennsylvania (4), and Virginia (3). There are 11 new consigners.

Goats from 2007 test In the first two years of the test, we were unable to acheive our goal of 50 goats on test. The nominated goats are Kiko, Boer, and various crosses.

As soon as the deadline passes, we will notify consigners to let them know if and how many of their goats have been accepted for the test. We will need to pare the list down to 50 to 55 goats.
