Twenty bucks nominated

So far, 20 bucks have been nominated to the 2010 Western Maryland Pasture-Based Meat Goat Performance Test (Delaware, 5; Illinois, 5; Maryland, 3; Pennsylvania, 2; and Tennessee, 5).

The deadline for nominations is May 15.  When sending in the nomination form, it is not necessary to nominate specific bucks.  The buck information sheets are not due until the bucks are brought to the test site on June 4.

Seventy goats are being sought for the 2010 test.  If more than 70 nominations are received by the deadline, preference will be given to previous considers and Maryland residents.
