2011 field day and sale to be held Sept. 24

The conflict at the local county fairgrounds has been resolved. The annual goat field day, sale, and skillathon will be held Saturday, September 24, 2011, at the Washington County Agricultural Education Center (fairgrounds) near Boonsboro, Maryland.

Goats will be delivered to the test site on Friday and Saturday, June 4 and 5. After a (shortened) five day adjustment period, the first weights will be recorded on June 9.

An earlier day for the field day and sale will resolve some other potential scheduling conflicts, enable the sale of the bucks one week earlier, and reduce the potential effect of the rutt (on gain) by one week.
